I have no doubt the parents were paying attention, and condoning this behavior. Every parent who's at this level, watched hundreds of kid's matches knows how their kids behave. It is no surprise to them.
If USTA did not know, fair enough. It is then the fault of the parents (and the coach) who want their kid to be the next "superstar" at the expense of everything else.
Sadly, this is becoming too common as the pursuit of tennis "glory" trumps decency.
