    Is it possible to go from a utr 5 to a utr 10.5 in 4 years

    As a matter of fact, there's only one Spieth and one Koepka. It would have been a huge mistake to replace golf clubs with tennis racquets for Spieth or Koepka when they were 12 y.o.

    Tampa 6 yr old private coach ideas?

    Probably not a daily option for you but Steve Smith in Orlando https://greatbasetennis.com/ is excellent in developing fundamentals. Very old school but I think would be very helpful to develop or to get advice on strong fundamentals so kids don't have to unlearn bad habits/techniques when they...

    Compared to other sports, how much does tennis receive?

    Stanford (Pac 12 conference). My daughter was on their rowing team and yes the special training tables and dining were open to all athletes no matter the team (not club players though lol). Lot's of privileges for athletes but dining was definitely one of the top highlights!

    why so many 18s quit tennis before college

    Big congrats to your son! Sounds like he has a bright future ahead. I've enjoyed your posts through the years regarding junior tennis. It's bittersweet for sure. I still recall the last competitive junior matches my 2 girls played with mixed emotions. Both had chances to play college (D3)...

    Stefan Edberg's forehand - what can we learn?

    Let's have a little perspective here. 99.99% of tennis players would take Grigor's forehand, career high #3 ATP, >18M$ prize money ;) https://www.atptour.com/en/players/grigor-dimitrov/d875/overview

    why so many 18s quit tennis before college

    This post contains almost all wrong info as usual: 1. No high school in the US has over 50% Ivy acceptance rate. Does not exist. 2. Legacies make up 14% of Harvard's undergrad population. That's not a small percentage but let's not make it sound like the majority of students are legacies...

    why so many 18s quit tennis before college

    As I said to each their own... I wonder if the odds of playing D1 tennis then going to medical school is a bit higher than winning the Powerball then what are the odds of becoming the next John Mayer.
