@ Mr. EastInd > How can you say that Sriram Balaji is the only one competing right now? I'm still playing college tennis in America. I played for Anderson University, ranked 15 in the nation, for my freshmen year. I received a national ranking of No.6 in doubles with my partner Philip Pakebusch. I transferred to Jackson State University where I was honored ALL SWAC TEAM 3rd singles and ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM of SWAC. I still have a year and a half left in collegetennis and I have plans of going pro once I graduate. So, before you can comment on a player about still pursuing tennis or not, you better watch it!

Welcome to the forum Navaneeth. Looking forward to some first hand posts/news on tennis from you.

Eastind might have missed your name out of oversight and not intentionally. Congratulations for all your achievements so far :goodluck:

Hi Navneeth. Welcome to the forum. As jaydeep said, don't overly bother about the opinion or comment by one person. Just focus on your tennis and good things will happen. Glad to hear of your progress. I was wondering where you had disappeared to, but had not checked the college results closely.

Jay

PS: if you had to wait before the first post appeared, it was because one of the moderators had to approve the first post - not the later ones. You are free to post from now on, about anything you want to comment on.

Am I missing something ? Which post is Navneeth respoding to ? The post before in this thread is posted more than 2 years back & I did not see any post by EastInd with reference to Sriram Balaji.

And does this even belong to the thread on Indian coaches? Maybe someone moved these posts from somewhere and we sort of lost the context? Should these posts go to some other thread?

Most of them are also misleading the parents about the ability of the kids.


Yeah I've seen a lot of this too. Sad but true.

Now Iam seeing quite a lot of young players in the age group of 22 - 27 turning to coaching to make money. Have they given up their dream so fast it really bothers me.
Are they giving their best to coaching other young players, I think not by what I have experienced so far.

Yes, totally agree ... Premature decision with half-cooked experience.

I am not sure where to post this...didn't want to create a new topic.

This is a presentation by USTA/Team USA on the state of junior tennis and junior player development in the US. There are a couple of interesting presentations in here by Stephen Amritraj (on college--> pros pathway) and the national coach Jay Devashetty (on the progress of junior tennis). This is a quarterly presentation that is open to everyone (need to register and get an id/pwd).
I was also listening to Martin Blackman recently (new GM for US player development who took over from Patrick McEnroe) and it is interesting that he is a very numbers driven guy (lots of historical analysis, number crunching goes into developing a player development methodology). I am sure Prasen would like him!

I sincerely hope AITA/junior development folks in India have such forums to discuss progress topics related to Indian tennis.
