Coach Kriese has been talking in recent weeks about missed player development opportunities in High Schools and rural areas. Todays 'American Tennis' show is an interview of a High School star and nationally prominent junior player. This young man talks about his journey in rural Louisiana to national prominence. He talks about how his hopes and dreams were nutured as a youngster and then helped to developed at each and every stage. The program gives great insight into what it takes to go from start to finish as a tennis player in the US today. Kriese speaks about the downside of our Nations Point system structure as a self-sabotage culprit that kills creativity and energy in the grass-roots arena. A very entertaining show as the coach and the student interact freely about what it takes to get it done in our current environment of US tennis.
