It wasn't a smooth ride at all and my dad had lots to learn. I remember stories where one of the top guys (ended up playing pro events later on), his dad left him at the club after a tournament. The kid lost in the finals in 3 sets to a younger but equally good opponent, but he always won everything usually. Anyways, his dad left him and this kid chased after the car for about a kilometer with his tennis bag and gear before his dad stopped.
Another story was with another kid who's dad chased him around on the adjacent corn field after an argument they had after a loss. Kinda funny to think about now, but I know it was difficult on them.
