She's only 1* so tennis won't help her. Congrats again!
Congratulations for your daughter's accomplishment! I heard recently that Harvard admitted a boy (Chinese American) who plays 2nd or 3rd doubles for his high school team. I heard that he did some cancer research that must be considered exceptional achievement for a high school kid. For your daughter, many years of tennis training and competition should make her resume even more impressive. Good luck!
