This series definitely adds more opportunities to play out-of-section players. But will the people most vocal against the USTA changes travel to play in these events even if they get NO points for their USTA national ranking? Anyone care to venture a guess?
My son plays most of national events year around. We always minimize his missing school and try to control our budget and as such would choose a L3 or L2 that we can drive to or fly over in 2-3 hrs. Getting him national ranking points is important. But we will play TRN series if we can drive over in a few hours or we don't have to miss school.
