College Tennis Forum Request

"The next-best thing from the ATP is NCAA Tennis.
The College Tennis Thread has reached 1000 posts, and we have built up the popularity of our thread over a year now, as we were denied of a Forum last year.

DO NOT VOTE IF YOU SIMPLY DO NOT FOLLOW COLLEGE TENNIS OR YOU OPPOSE THOSE WHO DO FOLLOW IT. Do vote if you think the game and the College Tennis Thread(http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...1#post10391680) deserves to be upgraded to a forum.

Across the World Wide Web there really is no place that directly has College Tennis Forums. This is MensTennisForums, and that should apply to all phases of male tennis.

We have a Junior Tennis Forum here, but why not a Collegiate Forum? The next step up from Juniors to the Pros is college. Top junior players such as Alex Domijan, are going to college.

Some college players who are currently on the ATP tour are...

Kevin Anderson, Prakash Amritraj, Robert Farah, Simon Aspelin, George Bastl, Benjamin Becker, Mahesh Bhupathi, James Blake, Bob and Mike Bryan, Ryler DeHeart, Amer Delic, Somdev Devvarman, John Isner, Robert Kendrick, Mark Knowles, Jesse Levine, Marcin Matkowski, Todd Paul, Rajeev Ram, Bobby Reynolds, Michael Russel, Ken Skupski, Ryan Sweeting, Izak van der Merwe, Jesse Witten, Michael Yani

A few former collegiate players are...

John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Arthur Ashe, Stan Smith, Patrick McEnroe, Luke Jensen, Justin Gimelstob

Junior Tennis and Exibitions have their own forums. I believe now is the time for a College Tennis Forum..an upgrade to the 1000+ post College Tennis Thread

Re: College Tennis Forum Request

100% yes. A college tennis forum is a must. It is all across the nation and it is hard to suffeciently cover the entire nation in one thread. A forum would greatly increase the college tennis coverage on this site.

College tennis is getting better every year. Some very find players in colege now that can compete at the pro level. More and more top Americans are looking to college as a great option.

Also you don' have to be from the USA to follow college tennis. There are a great deal of international players. Top players from some smaller nations choose to go to college. Even if you dont have a team you could follow individuals in the college game

Re: College Tennis Forum Request

Definitely...I will be around a lot more during the season to start following college tennis, but there has been quite a bit of chatter I think for an "offseason".

We o have a juniors and exibitions forums on here though. I think some people like you may care as much about those as they do college tennis.

no exhibitions are much more important like hopman cup,kooyong etc. Top players play there, resluts are important and alot of people post there when exhos are happening. As for college tennis, you are really the only one interested. No one cares about American upstarts who wont turn pro..you will also account for half the post there. College tennis will waste valuable forum space

i advice all others to vote no on this poll. Forum space can be used for better things

Fine, your opinion. But there are over a hundred current professionals that played college tennis that are on the tour now. So yes, college players do turn pro.

Re: College Tennis Forum Request

I don't see why college tennis forum is more of a waste of space than say the Slovakian tennis player forum. There are many more current and former college players in the pro rankings than slovakians in the pro rankings.

Re: College Tennis Forum Request

A lot of the best players from a smaller country play in college tennis. Jaak Poldmaa of Estonia is an example.

The strength of college tennis is growing. Not only are top American juniors now going to college to play but international players that already have pro experience and have ATP rankings in the top 1000.
