Soccer has many times the players overall than youth tennis. So if you want to compare your situation to the elite soccer selection....only maybe the top 10 ITFs in the world would be kept on the elite track.
BTW the article says they "do not" look for the kids with "results or the fastest" ect. comrehension is trouble for some .
