"Oh.....& maybe save a few bucks to invest more funds for Futures Tour players (here in the States), so those following the dream have a little bit easier time of it. Heck.....send them Hampton/Fairfield or Subway vouchers."
USTA shouldn't give $ directly to parents for their kid's tennis training because you need a simpler system to monitor. Also, other kids to train with is critical.
Support through vouchers to players ranked 300 to 1000 would be a huge help at the challenger qualifying level where trips are made weekly to different regions. These are the players directly trying to succeed and still paying to play professionally. They have proven that they can earn points but need the funding to travel weekly around the globe chasing challenger level qualies.
