Tennis for juniors cannot be about college scholarships. If it is purely financial return you are looking for tennis does not make the cut.

That being said I think tennis is a great opportunity for many reasons.
I agree but, majority of the parents opposed to the proposed tournament changes cite that exposure to college recruiters will be destroyed if the changes are adopted. What do you say to that argument? In your opinion, is that on target?
