Been seeing a lot of that.

In my opinion the USTA was wrong and stupid.
I hope you're not blaming DY's path in the pros on the USTA. It is what it is and it's on DY and his parents. They picked his contract based on incentives, instead of the upfront money, they took the 8 or 9 WC's in a row in the beginning when he was 15 in which he lost all of them. It was DY's folks who wanted control. From what I can see they wanted USTA funding without the USTA involvement. Tell me how that's not the case.

I gaving DY the benefit of the doubt all along. With the exception of short-term change, he's always gone back to same way of doing thing, his folks. I've observed very little tennis, physical and emotional athletic growth. He could have used the coaching from another source, they seem to always push that away. I still hold out hope with his young age he can turn it around. But they won't change the way they've been going about things since the beginning, so why should we expect anything different in the future?
