I viewed an interview in the past…

About a rising star in womens tennis.

It was about Melanie Oudin, a 17 year old who is ranked 67 in the world for the upcoming US Open and placed in the top 16 at Wimbledon.

Her coach for the past 8 years is Brian De Villers, and he has a theory of why there are not more American players in the top World rankings.

He said, “They are too soft in America. There are too many escapes clauses for the players, whether it be college, or some other choice, and most come from affluence, so the minute the going gets tough…they bail.


Yours in “Thought” – Coach
