Have to hand it to Bellis, at 13, just this year, his daughter has won 3 nationals (playing 18s), finaled in an ITF and like mentioned wins sectionals. She will obviously get into any event they enter, yet he is willing to put it out there against the changes that will effect them less than so many. They know their player is one that is justified/good enough to be on the ITF path (which USTA pretty much eliminated in the U.S.) and that will most likely be their route anyway, but they continue the fight. They are a tennis family and really understand the impact of the changes on tennis overall and all players. Good for them. They aren't scared to take a stand and will be successful in spite of USTA rather than with them, which is a loss for USTA.
