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.

Wayne is in blue and Kurt in Black.
“You’re the best and most likeable adversary I have ever had” That’s quite a compliment coming from you. Ha. If the shoe fits, you gotta wear it. Read more…
And Happy New Year and hope you and your family have had a wonderful Holiday Season . . .Have received a few e mails, texts and calls from coaches across the country lately saying that Kurt Kamperman is saying Coach Bryan only feels there are 1,000 kids in the US who should be playing with regulations tennis balls. I would like to make the record crystal clear here:
The Cougars of Columbus State University Men’s Tennis vs. The Wildcats of Abilene Christian University Men’s Tennis
This week the Road Not Taken takes a look into the world of the NCAA Division II tennis. This is a NCAA Division that is full of athletes from all around the world. Our first team is the Columbus State University Cougars. And our second team to look at is the Abilene Christian University Wildcats.

During this time period Jerry has been able to help numerous junior tennis players achieve a level of excellence unparalleled in the Southern Section of the USTA and perhaps even on a National level.

Another exchange between Lawrence Roddick and Wayne Bryan regarding the 10 and Under Mandate. It appears the USTA is really digging in it’s heels on the matter. All over the globe the mandate has been met with resistance from knowledgable coaches and in the USA there is no exception to this. I cannot find 1 out of 10 I speak to who think the mandate is a good idea. Below is Roddick in black and Wayne Bryan is in blue. Read more…
Here is another great correspondence between Blanche Roddick and Wayne Bryan regarding the 10 and Under mandate. To my way of thinking this is exactly as they describe it. It is sooooooooooo stupid to have this thing brought in as a mandate. But they over reached when they put it in to play. They told schools, parks and clubs this is the mandate and We Are Sticking To It! We now know there was no true and real research done regarding the mandate and it was an idea hatched from ITF and USTA people who could not coach their way out of a brown paper bag.
Ms. Roddick is in Black and Wayne is in Blue.
