what im talking about are national tournaments, but they are all together, juniors, college/pro level guys all play the same tournaments. and because everyone is playing in the same draw....nobody has to travel very far to get good competition. and all matches count for the national ranking.
he doesnt mention anything about the 5000 national tournaments that are played in france between april and october.
im still shaking my head in disappointment
i think the point was simply to highlight the scope of junior competition in Europe versus the US - Why the disappointment?
