A Comment from Anthony Ross, former Pepperdine All- American and one of the world’s most respected tennis performance psychologists

‘Tom is the ultimate team player; reliable, prepared and all about the team performance. His game is well suited to college as he is without gaping weaknesses, is deceptively strong and most importantly, coachable. There is no hesitation in recommending Tom to college coaches who want to work with one of my favourite kids I’ve worked with..’

Universal Tennis Rating for Australians: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Study & Play USA endorses the UTR system, however, at present, most Australian kids do not get an opportunity to play ITF events due to proximity, finances and academic pressures. UTR has requested that Australian Ranking events be included for Australian players and the calculation of their UTR. At present, they are not included in calculations for Australians.
