Agreed. This whole notion is polyanic. The USTA will never go to this length. The concept is Rediculous and ripe for law suits. All the *****ing about how bad the refs are and now folks are condoning the USTA add extra policing of junior tennis? Could you imaging the uproar when your kid has been secretly busted by Big Brother USTA?

My son usually calls out the score before he serves; he often asks his opponent to confirm the score before receiving serves. I don't recall he has ever got cheated on the scores.
I watched 7-8 matches at the past winter nationals for B18, witnessed many playing out balls; saw only one bad call. Cheating was much worse when my son played 12s. So, kids usually are getting better as they get older.
What was the exact nature of the kids suspension? Did you see the suspension letter? I'm not challenging you, this sounds like a typical code violation suspension associated with bad behavior. Would like to hear more details though if it was for cheating.
