I started this thread with the dates bolded in red.
The default was on Sunday, January 27th.
The announcement for the Davis Cup Juniors was Thursday, January 31st.
The USTA either knew what transpired at a National Tournament in their own backyard ( Florida) and a lack of respect and decency to your opponent is irrelevant to them or they are completely out of touch with what is going on in junior tennis. I am not sure what is worse.
