Many thanks to Wayne Bryan et al.I am the father of a ******* junior and there is not one parent who supports the USTA changes.The idea that eliminating tournaments and reducing draw sizes will grow or improve tennis is absurd.The Big Lie… Furthermore, every kid with a spring or early summer birthday ages up before the only remaining super nationals and will never get in. Thats probably 25% of the kids in the juniors. Our sport is being ruined.

Unintended consequence of USTA actions: A number of parents of almost elite level juniors have decided to pull the younger siblings out of tennis and concentrate on other sports with a better chance of a college ride.These are tennis families and the core constituent group of the USTA…..AND THEY HAVE BEEN ALIENATED.The level of betrayal is palpable.

Every single parent at this weekends Girls 14′s Nationals was against the changes. And there were a lot of girls who would still be getting in everything and they don’t want any reductions at all.
If anything, we everyone wants more tournaments and larger draws.
