i agree with you , TCF said his daughter was going to win the OB Eddie Herr ect. and head through some type of front door , not like we are having to do play futures wherever they exist in this country or abroad to gain points and get into the next level ,Challengers, the 250 , 500, 1000 .
It is just like the juniors start at the bottom getting your 1ST WIN then a tournament , then higher levels all the way up to Nationals and you have to have a decent ranking to get in those , It is a process I don't think TCF understands yet but he and his daughter need to win a match first and it will all start making sense to him .
