I would be curious to know what your athlete is studying. I believe it would be quite difficult to do a technical major like engineering at Princeton and be able to practice tennis at a high level concurrently.
Very difficult to go pre-med or major in engineering at Princeton or any Ivy and play tennis. Tennis has a fall and spring season so player is almost always in season. Practices can run up to 20 hours a week, more likely 15. Plus matches.
