The USTA is acting like they're directly responsible for his success. He hasn't received any help from the USTA either with coaching, finances or wild cards since the beginning of 2006. As recently as July 2010, the guy was $40,000 IN DEBT. Now they're going after him? Guess the USTA has to pay for that roof on Arthur Ashe somehow, even though it's the worst kept secret in tennis that they just sit on millions upon millions of dollars
Also, we're talking about a six-figure lawsuit here considering that he did get free USTA coaching for several years and a couple of main draw wild cards into the US Open. It's disgusting that they're trying to clean this guy out over taking an opportunity (Davis Cup/Olympics) that they were never going to give him in the first place.
