This is true, but mostly because it is a truism. The question is why aren't our kids good enough.
Clearly, its Pmac's fault.
That was a joke.
It's not just one thing. Its not just PD, or the national tournament schedule, or the ROG mandate, or an anemic futures circuit, or getting better athletes interested in Tennis. The US tennis getting to where it where it's at now is the result a of a systematic failure at all these levels, coinciding with a massive increase in interest and focus on tennis abroad.
