Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Another Thing American Kids Can't Do—Play Tennis
I am the publisher of Sun Tennis Magazine.
Guzzardi's column on college tennis and the abuse of some universities recruitment of foreign-born players is a great journalism job on an important subject.
The issue of foreign-born players on U. S. college tennis teams hits home to a lot of us. We are parents of a nationally highly-ranked 19-year-old boy who got only one offer of a partial scholarship. It would cost him $25,000 more per year to be the university's number one player. Instead, he has chosen to go to community college just so he can play tennis.
Joe Guzzardi comments: Foreign-born players remain a major topic at this year's U.S. Open. USA Network commentators Ted Robinson and Tracy Austin remarked about the achievements of John Isner, a player at the University of Georgia ranked #839 in the world who reached into the third round before losing the world's #1 player Roger Federer. Robinson and Austin agreed that it was unusual for an American to be on a major university's tennis team
