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.

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 second of two fantastic emails penned by Dr. Ray Brown. This particular email deals with the analysis of the “Bureaucratic Mind”. His attempt here is draw attention to the idea just because someone from the USTA has put forth an idea or a marketing scheme does not automatically make it accepted as fact.
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.

These are a few letters between Wayne Bryan, Steve Bellamy and Geoff Grant. I love this exchange of ideas coming from some of the sharpest idea guys out there! And a plan! Wayne Bryan is in Blue, Steve Bellamy is in Orange, Geoff Grant is in Purple and Kevin Kempin is in Green! I personally like Steve Bellamy’s idea for competition centers on both coasts. That is where we should be heading!
