100 is too many USTA tournament matches. 25-35 is enough. The kids who play 100+ got stuck in a defensive junior style of play that does not work when they get older. Best path for development is a mix of tournament play, hitting sessions, sets with older kids or adults. Play plenty of sets. When he/she plays tournaments move up in age and difficulty at least 1/2 the time.
