France has more serious tennis players than America. They take the game more seriously.
France's centralized national sports school/program identifies promising juniors early.

Spain, slowing of all courts, (hard, grass) suites their "grinding" style of play.

American style is and should always be the "attacking" game, slow courts work against us.

American coaches have no passion for the game anymore, they are more concerned about the, "ALMIGHTY DOLLAR".
