We have been around high performance and they wont even place my player on the court with all the upcoming future players yet we go to IMG and he is splitting sets with Quigley and losing a tight set to Harrison and yet at High performance he ends up on court with 16 yr olds "96's" cause thats his age group and he is one of the top 18 yr olds ,,,
We need some serous changes in our thinking if the USA is gonna stand a chance .
