    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    Why do you think all the people you named never did sit ups or push ups at an early age? You don't know that and I rest assure most that you named off did some of that stuff.....Again, you may have book facts but your guessing on the others which is why I say don't blow your credibility on here...

    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    Scientific evidence thats pretty amusing. TCF I'm afraid you read to much and thats your biggest problem. It has been demonstrated that little children in very poor countrys are already working at the age of 5. Moving boulders, working on a farm trying to survive,etc. Those kids I have to say...

    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    I'm back. TCF I don't agree with you that push ups at age 6 will do the child no good. Thats way off base. Push ups develop strength in the arms and shoulders even at tyhe young age of 6, nuff said. I do agree with you on the sit ups though and the potential it has for spine issues. There are...

    Questionable advice. All those reasons will be why this youngster does (not) succeed.

    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    My perception of the post (get my rear end handed to me) and than following up with "we don't say this to him", etc. Is a clear indication the parents most likely could have been at fault from up bringing (coddeling). Now they want there kid to be a tiger and raised a lamb. Anyway, you interpret...

    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    Very true.........And I'm sure without a question of a doubt Uncle Tony was not seeking a sports Physcologist at age 11 for Rafa when young Rafa lost matches or points for that matter. Like I said before, based on the body of what was posted it is the parents who need the schrink....Oh, BTW I'm...

    Sports psychologists for juniors?

    This would be a case where mommy and daddy need the Psychologist as it is very easy to read between the lines as to what is going on in this situation. If the kid lacks confidence it is because of the way he has been brought along. Time to reaavaluate yourselvs..........

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    I will take Federer over mac or connors in a heartbeat. Nadal as well. So whats your point? Just shows your knowledge as being very closed. The game is different and it shows with the condioning of the players...They are bigger, stronger and faster and the great ones use a lot of wrist which...

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    I will answer for TCF (Trojambabybooboo). The game is totaly different now than what it was when mac, connors and sampras were playing. All three would have a much harder time in my opinion now than when they played previously especially Mac with that crummy forehand that looks like he has a...

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    One way or another believe it or not the parents are involved especially with the athletes that make it to the next level in all sports. Sure there are stories of the kid who has major dysfunction at home and rises to the top but usually there is some kind of invlovement from the parents. It...

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    Whats there not to understand? You prejudged and made an ignorant statement about the lack of education of these kids,etc. Gee, (Drakuli) understood and he let you know what he thought. Is he misunderstood as well? Your credibility is tarnished (idiot).

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    It's to bad most on here don't realize this. All I ever here is make it fun or to much will cause burn out,etc. I would rather take my chances with too much than not enough.

    Keep it fun and be sure to bring a gallon of Ice Cream to your next practice. This is why the USTA would not waste a dime........

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    Let me get this straight. You want the USTA to support (financially) a kid who appears to have talent by virtue of the way they hit,etc? Why should the USTA inherit a kid who is unproven and quite possibly weak minded based on their up bringing ? Wow, you and GOOGOOGAGATENNIS are a match made in...

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    Why not do it the right way and wait until they are at least 9 and play them in the 10's. Let them prove to therselvs that they can get through the pushers, etc. These kids will be competing there whole lives let them see the results and work towards a goal of being a part of the USTA program...

    want USTA support ? it's who you know not how good your kid is

    Why would GOOGOOGAGATENNIS and Danny Thomas complain about the USTA not helping there kids or funding them for that matter? Do you think it's fair to not earn your way in instead of complaining about the fact that a few of the kids get special privelages? Your kids need to be top ranked or...

    How long???

    All I'm saying is next time be more specific. You don't have to be so defensive GOOGOOGAGATENNIS.......You need another coach working with your son just to help out, as you may be working him into the ground by having him move around the whole session and not being realistic with what needs to...

    How long???

    I think you need to be more specific with your input or rationale as it relates to movement drills. Needless to say when the hitting coaches are working with the pro tour players the balls are much slower than in an actual match, etc. As long as you mix it up and not (grind them) into the...

    USTA 50K Men’s & Women’s Carson Challenger Wild Card Tournament

    You still have to qualify academically, however a 2.5 will get you into a good school so you really don't have to be a genious either..........

    USTA 50K Men’s & Women’s Carson Challenger Wild Card Tournament

    That analysys is way off base. Just because JT had equal games to Deiton does not make Deiton a College player. Once again, until he wins a significant Tournament than we can start making sensible predictions. These types of tournaments (Challengers) believe it or not pose as no pressure for Mr...

    USTA 50K Men’s & Women’s Carson Challenger Wild Card Tournament

    Trojankiddy just because Deiton makes one shot out of his wheel house does not mean he makes most shots out of his wheel house. If that were the case he would have beat Sarmiento or at least made it closer. I'm sure the score was farther apart than what it appeared to be. Lets face it 6-1 6-3 is...

    USTA 50K Men’s & Women’s Carson Challenger Wild Card Tournament

    Sarmiento all around much better tatical player as well as good footwork and technique. Whats there to compare. Deiton is a great hitter as there are plenty of great hitters everywhere. We all know there is much more to the game than stroke production Trojankiddy:)

    Easter Bowl

    The only time to judge someone is at crunch time and we all know what happend to Deiton at "crunch time" in the semis of the Easter Bowl. Again, read Tenniscp's comments so that you don't get caught up with video of non competitive footage of someone hitting a clean ball and looking like they...

    Easter Bowl

    Bottom line as you mentioned previously Tenniscrazee, Deiton, Kozlov, and all the rest who will continue to see each other over the next 3 years will all be College bound with the exception like I said of Mr Baughmans kid which I tend to think his Mommy & Daddy will not prepare him the right way...
