I think it sets out the stall regarding chances of obtaining a scholarship, for many tennis players from the US they want D1 or nothing hmm. Doesnt factor in the cost of getting a child to D1 standard though, tennis isnt cheap!!

theres also a link to odds on going pro post college, but tennis not included - maybe the numbers too small?

college tennis ranks has a drop down menu with the pro data for college/former college players.

 I appreciate for some its the joy of being able to continue their tennis studies plus an academic qualification, but for those at lower level colleges etc you have to question if its financially worth it? Life over there, plus travel etc, is pricey, when you could also get good tennis exposure at some of the sportier unis over here without the same outlay on coaching or getting a ranking at juniors.

 

Just feels like in some cases it reminds me of those old gap year schemes - do some charity work in South America and pay 10k for the privileg!


Agree, parents really need to do the maths!! The sportier tennis unis in the UK (eg Bath, Notts, Loughborough) are really tough to get into academically, when my son was applying they wanted AAB or higher for popular subjects. Most of the D1 US colleges dont require such high A level grades for student-athletes, although many require students to sit ACT or SAT and write a general essay. Also, theres no real equivalent here to the US junior college which tends to be the route for for those whove not sat A levels.

 Although there's no equivalent location EP a lot of students these days who haven't done the right A levels for a particular course or who didn't do well enough now do foundation years, which are a one year course that can get you into the course proper if you do well enough. It also suits those who do better in course work as A levels are so heavily weighted in assessment by exam.

From the roster looks like a possibility of Fery returning to Stanford 2023/24 - maybe summer on the tour didnt work out as planned?

 If you check the filter to 23/24 it shows Arthur as well.

FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY With the fourth and final Grand Slam of the calendar year getting underway next Monday, many of the sports best and brightest stars will still be looking to secure their spot into the mens and womens singles main draw this week through qualifying play.

Spanning from Tuesday to Friday, the 2023 US Open Qualifying Draw will feature 128 mens and womens players, which by the end of the week, will be just the final 16 players who will have earned themselves a spot into the US Open Main Draw.

Out of these 128 players on both the mens and womens sides of play, 32 have ties back to college tennis, including several players who were on college rosters just this past season.

Sadly no Brit men hmm

 From Wiki

"Miyazaki attended the University of Oklahoma (20142019), where she completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics followed by a Masters in Information Technology Management."

Also this LTA article says the same
