    Thank you
    I am junior player living in Chicago and it’s very helpful. It helps me to accept the fact that I cannot do what most top juniors in nation are doing due to my family finances. Coaches and hosts are saying all the right things about practicing, tournaments etc however the more I listen the more I don’t understand usta and how player development works. I have one problem , I basically train like it’s told on this podcast , I don’t hunt the points mainly because can’t afford to travel and spend huge money on National tournaments which lead to the conclusion. All the players I train here with that travel mostly every two weeks to a National tournaments at some point are invited by USTA to a camps and they told me that I should be invited but in order to have it happen you have to play couple National tournaments. Basically it’s disappointing to listen to this podcast saying don’t worry about not playing too many tournaments and focus on development more and then players development people make you to play tournaments to be noticed! But review is about podcast and I love it !!!
