I do NOT think you know the pro system very well but I could be wrong.

Read the quote about TT below
I assume that you know who Alexa Glatch and Alexis King are

Townsend reached two ITF Circuit semifinals:

One $50,000 event in Carson, CA, in May, losing to Alexa Glatch, 6–7(1), 2–6
One $10,000 event in Atlanta, GA, in July, losing to Alexis King, 4–6, 3–6

In June, she lost in the first round of a $50,000 event in Boston, MA, to Yasmin Schnack, 4–6, 3–6.

Townsend was granted a wildcard into the main draw of the U.S. women's doubles tournament, where she was paired with Jessica Pegula. The pair reached the third round.
Wow, you do not have to be so condescending when it was you who have failed to make a clear argument in your last 2 posts.

From what I gather (although still not clear) you are suggesting that Taylor should not drop USTA training because they will blacklist her from getting wildcards at future pro tournaments ?

She was already denied a wild card into the main draw of US Open.

Obviously, it is not a good situation for Taylor, but if there is a better training situation, I think she should take it.

The wildcard issue is not something she can control whether training with the USTA or not.
