I never enter these debates, but here I go now. For most part college is not the right route to go pro. Almost nobody in the world is doing it apart from US where college sports are a huge thing. Young women are competing at age 14 and up in Europe, and not junior tournament, smaller pro tournaments. Unless all your college professors are going to pass you for no work, how are you going to balance training and studying? Your peers are playing pros at 17 and you are playing college tennis at 19? Playing better makes you better, not the other way around. I am for college education without question, and it is the right route for most tennis kids, but not for those with pro potential.
