Earlier on this site Coach Robert Lansdorp responded to a post from Dr. Ray Brown entitled “The Fall Of American Tennis”. In it Robert took issue with the idea that “now” it is the “parents”. I am sure he is as tired of all the different voices chiming with a different reason for failure as anyone else. In his response he explained it is much more the fault of the coaching today here in the USA than it is the parents. He places the blame squarely on the Player Development system the USTA has here in the USA.

Here is yet another email from Dr Ray Brown. But this one is special because it comes with an answer from the one and only Robert Lansdorp. Robert takes issue with the idea the parents are to blame and instead says the problems originate with the coaches. Coach Lansdorp’s answer is in green as a response.
Attn: (Disclaimer) The owner of www.tennisconsult.com is from whom this article originates. The article consists of an introduction was written by the owner of www.tennisconsult.com. with an excerpt from New York Times. The second part is the interview with Chris Lewis. I just want to make sure credit is given to the right source. So this article from the New York Times originates with the www.tennisconsult.com blog.
The following is an email written quoting Chris Lewis. Chris Lewis was the 1983 Wimbledon Finalist and the owner of Tennis-Experts, which is located in Irvine, California. Please have a read of his excellent article and let me know what you think.
What I have inserted below is from Wayne Bryan. He is commenting on the absurd comment from Patrick McEnroe regarding how long he thinks it will take to get the USTA programs working. I only wish I had as much time as he requests for success. Private sector or anything else-heck marriage–you think your wife would give you 15-20 to get it right? Anyway, below is Patrick’s suggestion and Wayne’s response. You decide for yourself.
The following is the first of two fantastic emails penned by Dr. Ray Brown. This first one is an editorial he wrote about the new ROG or TAUT format set up by the ITF and USTA.
Dr. Brown is a tennis coach located in Houston, TX. Coach Brown is an internationally recognized expert in high performance tennis training having published over 200 articles on advanced tennis training at TennisONE.com (US based), Procomparetennis.net (Great Britain) and Mid Atlantic Match Point (Virginia) and now Tennis World USA. From the urging of many local parents and coaches, Dr. Brown founded the EASI Academy in the summer of 2007.
Here are my picks for “suggested resolutions” the USTA could adopt going forward into 2013. I read these in this order on the We Coach Tennis radio show on December 30th, 2012. Hope somebody was listening. If not, now I have written them out so they might be better understood.
The guest tonight is the one and only Justin Gimelstob. We were finally able to connect with Justin and some say it was our best show yet. I was worried throughout the show if was I was going to be able to pull it off and do a good enough job to keep Justin interested and I think we did that on the show tonight.
The guest tonight needs no introduction unless you have been living under a rock–Wayne Bryan has been coaching and working in all aspects of the tennis world for the last umpteen years and we look forward to this time with Wayne as much as we have with any of our guests! Below we have included some of the good stuff behind from Wayne Bio!
Our guest this evening was supposed to be the incredible Justin Gimelstob. Justin was not able to make the show due to the fact he had a scheduling conflict. We hope to get him on at a later date.
