Curious how the French parents are in regards to competition. At what age do most focus on wins rather than improvement?
The French parents and coaches are on the same age with regards to technique and improvements. Many US parents are focused on the win. The parent of my #1 high school player just fired my assistant coach who was a Davis cup player and taught at boca for three years because her son lost a USTA match. The parent made the kid quit HS tennis as well. All because of just one loss.
