    If fall college tennis happens, what do you think it will look like?

    I somewhat agree with this. It could be helpful to have players on campus competitive heavily in practice a lot and having a presence on campus in the fall.

    If fall college tennis happens, what do you think it will look like?

    KC starts at a CSU in the Fall. I think FSU athletes will be in campus. My hope is the the mountain West is flexible enough to have a spring football season if Fall football is not possible. If so, that could forestall program cuts. I'm sure the team will play and host matches the Fall. Fresno...

    Tennis @Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)

    Another note the schools are not designated as ABCU. Meaning they were historically black, notably for historical reasons, but many were never exclusively black.

Finally, my kid's AA training partner is probably going to an HBCU. My kid is AA not going HBCU. He...

    why so many 18s quit tennis before college

    By the way, just so you know. there are less than 5 kids utr 12 class of 2020 that have not committed. So it's easy pretty to figure out who is quitting tennis. Of course you could be talking about an 11th grader that plans on quitting tennis.

    WSJ: Coco Gauff is the future of American women. American men have no future.

    I'm a serious nut. My kid wants to be a pro and knows the odds. Imo an American kid must love tennis and have all the physical and mental intangibles to be Top 300. Whereas imo other sports do not require love/obsession to reach very very high levels. Lots of kids think they love tennis until...

    If Schwartzman wins...

    So correct it is a great sport for short guys who can do the work. There really is no disadvantage against most players if you are as dedicated as similar sized competitors.

    my child is high level Junior who went to a racket tech seminar and was told by the lead technician that today's rackets are good for 40 stringings and then they are done. Mind you this may not apply outside of high-level play

    tennis parents and Tennis kids don't get the reality talk soon enough that allows them to change course or plan accordingly. UCLA's Billy Martin delivered the reality check talk to my child when he was 10. In hindsight, it was one of the most important things we found out about junior tennis...

    Infamous Sampras hater Rusedski: Federers's serve is in the category as Sampras

    By his individual approach as well as by the numbers, Roger Federer is the best server in tennis history. Pete Sampras has the best 1st serve ever. Probably the best 2nd serve on grass. There is a difference in serve and service game.
