Some do work with private coaches and some don't. USTA doesn't put their names on these kids either, people on the forum do.I don't get this discussion. Many of the top players that play at the Usta still train with their private coaches. In the morning they work with their coaches off site 7-9, at the Usta by 10 and train all day. The advantage is that the Usta provides a tremendous opportunity to play practice matches against excellent players, and they do the fitness. They also take the kids to itfs around the world, with coaches, for free or almost free. It is an opportunity for nonwealthy players that is unbelievable. The Usta puts their name on these kids, but they still work with their own coaches.
