true that .. most PD kids ended up going to D1 college program .. so everyone doing USTA tournaments are footing the bill for PD to send a few selected kids to play college tennis...
I like to see what kind of degrees and jobs these kids get after their college tennis career is over
... I'm betting teaching tennis somewhere...
great system ...
