Not convinced the way the foreign kids train is better. Maybe. In my limited view of the tennis world, foreign countries are getting bigger and better athletes into tennis. Just saw a D2 men's match. The team w/lot of Europeans and S. Americans had 4-5 inch per man height advantage over the team w/ all Americans. I agree that girls depth in USTA is very shallow. Boys much deeper. However, when I look at the top 30 boys in section, 18u, I don't see any elite athletes. All good tennis players but only a few good athletes. The starting 5 on my hs basketball team were better athletes.
