The list goes on and on. There are a lot of articles on the subject but this is the best one. With the average age of a top 100 player in the mid to late 20s. There appears to be a great argument for college tennis for a year or two.

Ok so you have come up with how many who have gone to college and "done well" over a 40 yr span ? you are showing me 6 I will ad Isner so that is 7 over 40 yrs, n
Now do me a favor factor in how many tennis schools in the D1 arena per year times 40 , I believe its 6 to 8 per team , you can do the math on this for me I dont add well ,

My question if the no.s are what i am seeing then the route of college is a death blow for anyone "wanting" to go pro , but I am open for stats that contridict these that i am seeing ?
