You're right. I'm not sure about those proportions as well, but I do believe in that premise.
You're also right that if a tournament is open to public spectators and filming isn't explicitly forbidden, then it's open game to film players regardless of how they or their parents feel about it.
I also think you're right about parents' objections to filming of players being a "parent paranoia" thing regarding tennis parents. I haven't come across any football, basketball, volleyball parents crying "foul" with regards to their kids being filmed.
