THE WORLD CUP (120)

World Cup soccer competition began in 1930. The United States men have never won it. Soccer is more widely played world-wide than any sport.
Title IX was implemented in 1970. The World Cup for women began in 1991. Our women have won twice. No other country has a “Title IX”.   Sports and sociology go hand in hand. Women’s college basketball has become markedly better, rapidly and recently, as more and more black women are enlisted. While the same is true historically for men’s college basketball, there has also been a major shift personnel-wise: Or the influx of international basketballers.
College track and tennis and soccer have a similar history.
Integration and Title IX were milestones long overdue. The law does affect who plays. Need based scholarships dictated a whole new landscape in American athletics. MUCH good has transpired.
There is food for thought. Five years ago I told all kinds of parents and friends that Title IX would provide tremendous opportunities for our girls, through golf scholarships. In just five years later, I wonder. Have you witnessed the women’s world golf rankings. The number of Korean players at the top is truly impressive. Due in no small part to a frenzied number of young Koran aspirants, putting in the lengths of practice sessions we reserve for school.
How long before we see college coaches bringing in entire rosters of girl golfers, borderline if not pro, from overseas? Tennis blinked and boom, no scholarships left for us.
What happens if internationals usurp collegiate basketball scholarships.
Was Title IX intended to offer opportunities for our women, or someone else? Other sports? Those to come?

I have been spectacularly unsuccessful in getting this elephant in our American living room removed. I have made speech after speech to coaches and parents in this country and they are 100% behind me and I’ve spoken to the college coaches national meeting in Florida on three occasions in recent years and I’ve hit this topic as hard as only Wayne Bryan can – – – to no avail.

Have only American kids playing college tennis and the crowds will be even bigger and the tennis just fine and exciting. Open college tennis up to the whole world and make it world class and our US kids are diminished. Why not make High School Tennis world class too? Why not have all the foreign coaches come over and take all the jobs away from our American coaches? College tennis should not be a world class sport. It should be for our American kids. And the scholarships should go to them and be helpful to their parents who pay all those taxes and who have supported their children and their tennis and their academics every step of the way.

It is time for the USTA to stand up and be counted on this issue. It is our USTA juniors who are losing out and paying the price. This glut of foreign players is chilling US junior tennis. When their is no fruit or flowers on the top, the vine dies.

Other Misc. Input:

1) Address the glut of college players in American college tennis. This is the big elephant in our tennis living room. The USTAhas never taken a stand on this. They even put out a White Paper saying basically that there is no problem. I chaired a panel discussion on this two years ago and the four USTA Staffers at the table all said American kids are “no good” and “lazy”. Huh?! There are several million dollars in tennis scholarships going to foreign players whose parents do not spend dollar one in taxes for education in this country. In this dire economy this is unconscionable it seems to me.

One foreign player per team? – – – fine – – – helps international good will and is a nice broadening experience for the guys on the team – – – six foreign
players?! – – – I say the emperor has no clothes. I say burn it down and start over again. Time for a revolt. Carthage must be destroyed!

THE MOREL LETTER (116)

April 14, 1992
I.T.C.A. P.O. Box 71 Princeton, NJ 08544 Gentlemen:
I have recently learned that the I.T.C.A. has taken the position that any regulation of foreign tennis players is prohibited by law. I have thoroughly researched and reviewed the law regarding this issue and wish to inform you that the law does not prohibit such regulation.
If your association has legal counsel, I’m confident that he is full conversant with the law of the higher education, and specifically, that as it pertains to intercollegiate athletics. I encourage you to confer with your counsel on this very important issue. If he does not concur with my opinion, or if you do not have legal counsel, I am readily available to discuss this issue with you or him by telephone, or, if need be, in person. Moreover, I am willing to provide you, or him, with all of the law as it pertains to this issue so that this matter can be decided on the basis of a policy decision. This problem is not going to go away. If anything, it is going to become worse as it pervades other sports in addition to tennis, track and soccer, the predominantly foreign athletic teams.
The issue should be fully discussed and decisions made regarding it on the basis of merit. The respective members of your Board, and those of other similar associations, should state what their position is, and then vote on it on the basis of policy. The law permits you to do that in regulating the number of foreign tennis players that may participate at various levels of intercollegiate tennis. No association should hide behind the shield of the law in order to avoid considering this very difficult issue.
The National Junior College Athletic Association (N.J.C.A.A.), based upon their legal counsel’s analysis, which concurs with mine, has provided for regulations as to the number of foreign students that may participate.Their action, and that of your Association, is not “State action”.They are permitted, as your Association is, to do this under the law. Minnesota also had adopted regulations, which the total number of foreign athletes is limited. There are a variety of methods, too numerous to mention here. Some regulation is done based upon the ratio of the total number of foreign students to the total students enrolled; some are as a percentage of the total team members; and some are simply by number.
As stated above, I am willing to confer with you or your counsel on the state of the law on this very important issue. Thank you for your consideration.
Very truly yours, John L. Morel

MEMORANDUM
April 23, 1992
To: ITCA Board of Directors, Sheila McInerney, Jeff Frank, Rick Evrard, Dan Calandro From: David Benjamin
Re:
Foreign Player Scholarships
As we all know, one of the most controversial areas involving collegiate tennis is the issue of scholarships given to foreign players. Over the past years, we have been asked innumerable questions about this by the media as well as members of the USTA and many concerned parents. It has always been our understanding that there are Constitutional constraints preventing an Association from passing any formal legislation which would limit scholarships given to foreign players. Last week I raised this question with Rick Evrard, NCAA Director of Legislative Services, who said his initial instinct was that it could be met with legal opposition, but he would look into it further.
This week I have just received the enclosed letter from an Illinois attorney, Mr. JohnMorel,in which he states that the“law does not prohibit such regulation.” I plan to discuss this matter in more detail over the phone with Mr. Morel, and to follow up with further conversation with the NCAA and other appropriate authorities.
In the meanwhile, I am bringing this matter to your attention in order that you might discuss this with the coaches at our ITCA. Annex Membership Meetings in May. If the points raised by John Morel are correct, it might be time for the ITCA and the NCAA Tennis Committee to explore this issue in depth.
I would appreciate having your ideas and reactions from the coaches after your discussions at the ITCA Annex Meetings.
Best Wishes.
Yours truly,
David A Benjamin – Executive Director
P.S. I am enclosing a fact sheet put together by Joe Lynch about foreign players and collegiate rankings.

AMERICAN COLLEGIATE VARSITY TENNIS AND INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (“FAQ”)—115

AMERICAN COLLEGIATE VARSITY TENNIS AND INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (“FAQ”)
This FAQ is designed to provide answers to the questions that are often raised concerning international players and collegiate varsity tennis.
The issues surrounding the participation of international players in American collegiate tennis have spurred much conversation among American junior players, their coaches, their parents, our Association, and the tennis world at large. This has been an emotionally charged and often divisive topic. There is a wide range of beliefs regarding these issues, and, apparently, much misinformation. This one issue is part of a very complicated fabric, which is the landscape of American collegiate varsity tennis. This is a very complex, nuanced issue with many intersecting/inter-related variables creating the current situation.
1. Why are there so many international players playing tennis?
The increase in international players is part and parcel of two phenomena: (a) increased globalization (or as author and New York Times columnist, Tom Friedman, has described it, a “flatter” world), and (b) the tennis explosion around the world.
The world in general is becoming a much more international place in so many respects. As Friedman has written, “technology and geo-economics” are “fundamentally reshaping our lives — much, much more quickly than many people realize.” Everywhere we turn, globalization is evident. International communication is becoming instantaneous. Outsourcing is becoming rampant. The ranks of a number of other sports – for example, basketball, golf, soccer, and swimming – are becoming much more international, and these trends are continuing.
The seismic change in tennis began with the advent of Open Tennis, which led to major investments in player development by tennis federations throughout the world. The results of this global interest in tennis began to surface in the 1980’s in Davis Cup, Fed Cup, the Grand Slam events, and in American college tennis. Smaller countries like Spain and Croatia are making their mark in the international tennis arena. The college tennis landscape is a reflection of what is occurring on the world stage. In most countries, tennis is one of the two or three most popular sports and

attracts the most talented athletes. In the United States, tennis is competing for athletes with a host of other sports, including football, basketball, baseball, and soccer.
2. What is the percentage of international student-athletes playing varsity tennis at American colleges and universities?
Across all divisions, international players comprise roughly 19% of all women tennis players and just under 27% of all men tennis players at American colleges and universities.
Percentage of International Players in Varsity College Tennis
According to the NCAA’s 2006-2007 Student-Athlete Race and Ethnicity Report (the most recent data available to the public):
NCAA Division
Men’s Varsity Tennis
Women’s Varsity T ennis
Division I
38.4 %
49.9 %
Division II
30.9 %
20.5 %
Division III
3.6 %
2.7 %
Divisions I, II, and III
26.7 %
19.0 %
3. What does the current scholarship landscape look like for our best American juniors?
While many people claim that the number of international student-athletes is limiting the ability of top American junior tennis players to receive tennis scholarships, the data from a recent study suggests that this is not the case. The overwhelming number of the Top 300 boys and girls (approximately 85% of the boys and 87% of the girls) are receiving college tennis scholarships. Some are choosing to attend Ivy League or top Division III Schools, which do not offer athletic scholarships. In addition, some are attending other schools but not on athletic scholarships even though some of them could have accepted an athletic scholarship elsewhere. Men are at a definite disadvantage regarding available tennis scholarships. This is because there are only 4.5 scholarships for men, as compared to 8 for women, allocated for respective NCAA Division I teams. Men are, in fact, at a disadvantage in three non-revenue sports (tennis, gymnastic, and volleyball).
An analysis of the USTA 2007 rankings of the top 300 Boys and Girls 18 revealed the following:
2
Boys:
• Of the top 300 Boys 18s in the final 2007 year-end rankings eligible to attend college, over 85% received tennis scholarships
• Of the 40 who did not receive tennis scholarships, 19 went to Ivy League Schools (1 to Brown, 1 to Columbia, 3 to Cornell, 2 to Dartmouth, 5 to Harvard, 3 to Penn, 3 to Princeton, and 1 to Yale), which do not offer athletic scholarships
• Eight others chose to attend other Division III schools (including Amherst, Bowdoin, University of Chicago, Emory, Washington University of St. Louis, and Williams), which also do not offer athletic scholarships
• 13 chose to attend other schools (including Boise State, Cal, Florida State, George Washington, Michigan, Notre Dame, St. John, Utah, and USC), but not on athletic scholarships, even though some of them could have accepted an athletic scholarship elsewhere
Girls:
• Of the top 300 Girls 18s ranked in the 2007 year-end rankings, 245 were eligible to attend college (the other 55 were younger than high school seniors)
• 213 of the 245 (87%) received college scholarships
• Of the 32 that did not receive tennis scholarships, 21 went to Ivy League Schools (4 to Brown, 2 to Columbia, 1 to Cornell, 5 to Harvard, 2 to Penn, 5 to Princeton, and 2 to Yale), which do not offer athletic scholarships
• A number chose to attend other Division III schools (Amherst, Carleton, University of Chicago, Emory, Middlebury, Wellesley, and Williams), which do not offer athletic scholarships
• And the remaining few chose to attend Cal, Michigan State, USC, and UCLA, but not on athletic scholarships, even though some of them could have accepted an athletic scholarship elsewhere
It is important to note that a number of female scholarships go unused each year.
4. Why are there so many international student-athletes playing varsity tennis at American colleges and universities?
First, the United States is the only country that offers significant scholarship support for intercollegiate sports. The combined academic-athletic package is extremely attractive to tennis players seeking to attend college, including international student- athletes. American college tennis is a natural magnet, offering the best of both worlds — a college degree and the opportunity to compete at a high level.
Second, varsity college coaches naturally want to win, and in many instances they are under a great deal of pressure to win from their Athletic Directors. There is
3
significant prestige and money involved for programs that finish highly ranked in the year-end Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. Presidents and Athletic Directors are often under tremendous pressure from alumni and trustees to put the “school on the map” with a strong showing. There are examples of coaches that have been fired by their Athletic Directors for refusing to recruit international student-athletes.
Sometimes, due to factors such as type of school, level of program, facilities, location, or climate, American college coaches who want to improve the level of their program have a difficult time recruiting outstanding American juniors. If they are struggling to attract top American talent but can recruit similarly skilled or even better skilled international student-athletes, many coaches will do so.
5. What does the balance of top international student-athletes to top American student-athletes look like at the NCAA Division I level for both genders?
In comparing American and international student-athletes in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Rankings from March 2009 (Top 100, Top 50, and Top 20), the following was noted:
Men:
Ranking
Percent (& Number) of Americans
Percent (and Number) of International Players
Top 100
38% (38)
62% (62)
Top 50
36% (18)
64% (32)
Top 20
40% (8)
60% (12)
Women:

44% (22)
Top 20

40% (8)

6. What are the benefits of international student-athletes playing American varsity collegiate tennis teams?
Top coaches contend that international student-athletes enhance the level of varsity competition and increase player development for all concerned. International student- athletes “raise the level of the game,” including for our American collegians. The better players every team has on the court, the argument goes, the better each and all players get. Everyone seems to agree that international student-athletes have raised the level of play tremendously over this past period.
Moreover, the chance for Americans to compete on a regular basis against top players their age from Europe, South America, and Asia provides important benefits for the American collegians who will be facing a significant amount of international competition once on the pro tour. Having international student-athletes as teammates and competing against international student-athletes also broadens the horizons and enriches the life experiences of American college student-athletes.
7. What are the rules to ensure international student-athletes are age appropriate and have been held to the same amateurism standards that American student-athletes have been held to?
The NCAA leadership just recently took the bold step of recommending that the one- year “grace period” for tennis should be reduced to a period of six months or less, effective either August 1, 2011 or 2012. This legislation has not yet been finally approved by the NCAA Board of Directors, but a decision is expected later in the spring of 2010. Currently, prospective student-athletes may take a year after high school before matriculating without losing any eligibility (i.e. having to sit out the first year of matriculation and also losing a minimum of a year of eligibility). This legislation encourages tennis playing student athletes to continue their educational path from high school to college, by allowing only a six month hiatus from their studies without penalty. The intent is to create a more level playing field based on age, experience, and opportunity, and in doing so, to discourage coaches from recruiting older and more experienced players who have already had a number of years on the professional tour as an amateur.
NCAA Bylaw #14.2.3.2 also ensures that tennis student-athletes must begin full time collegiate enrollment before their twentieth birthday. If they do not, student-athletes can be penalized by having to sit a year in residence and can run the risk of being penalized season(s) of eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center evaluates all Division I and Division II prospective student athletes’ amateur and academic status.
5
8. Does the NCAA limit the number of international student-athletes that can receive scholarships on American collegiate varsity tennis teams?
There are no NCAA limits on international student-athletes. There could be significant, if not insurmountable, legal hurdles for the NCAA to try to limit the number of international student-athletes that can receive scholarships on American varsity collegiate tennis teams. An early attempt by the NCAA to do this in the 1970’s in track was deemed discriminatory. Several respected experts have recently advised the USTA that the situation is the same pertaining to tennis and other varsity sports today. Neither the USTA (the governing body of tennis in the U.S.) nor the ITA (the governing body of varsity college tennis) has jurisdiction to institute such a prohibition or limitation on its own. At its own discretion, however, any individual college or university could explore its options in this regard. Certainly, the USTA encourages individual coaches, colleges, and universities to actively recruit outstanding young Americans. Further, it should be noted that there have been a number of highly successful collegiate varsity teams comprised of all American players, including some that have won NCAA championships.
9. What opportunities are available for junior players to compete with or practice with college varsity tennis players?
In 2009, over 100 USTA/ITA Campus Showdown events were hosted on college campuses. Campus Showdowns are one day, short format events open to all: juniors, college players, adults, and pros. Junior players and their parents have loved the format and the opportunity to play with and against current college players on a college campus.
In addition, the ITA Summer Circuit presented by the USTA also provides junior players an opportunity to play with and against current collegians, and junior participation has grown over the last few years. The circuit has grown to include 23 regional events with the top players competing in the ITA/USTA Summer National Collegiate Championships in mid August.
10. What is the USTA’s strategy for increasing the American talent pool?
The USTA has made a strong commitment to improve the quality of competitive play of American junior tennis players, with the goal of dramatically increasing the number of highly qualified American juniors prepared to play college varsity tennis at the highest levels. Patrick McEnroe, General Manager of the UST A ’ s Player Development program and Captain of the American Davis Cup team, has said, “The more outstanding American junior players there are, the more scholarships they will receive, and the fewer international players American college coaches will need to recruit. American junior tennis players simply must continue to get better and better.” He has also made it clear that going to college is the one pathway for 99.9% of our
6
American juniors and a primary pathway to pro tennis for even the very best collegiate players.
Elements of the strategy include but are not limited to the following:
a. Adopt and fully utilize the QuickStart format to expand and retain the base of the player pyramid.
b. Create and disseminate a unified coaching philosophy and a common coaching language among development coaches.
c. Establish Regional Training Centers across the country that will work in concert with our National Training Centers to help identify and develop America’s next generation of champions.
d. Create a national junior competition calendar that affords time for training, is affordable and ensures the healthy development of future college and professional champions.
e. Administer a comprehensive program that systematically supports and promotes college varsity tennis as the focal point for the vast majority of junior competitive players while also serving as an important developmental opportunity for those aspiring to play professional tennis.
f. Provide college coaches and communities with player development/advocacy tools to embed college programs in the community. The following tools are easy and inexpensive to incorporate into the fabric of the campus program.
• Campus Showdowns
• Campus Kids’ Days
• Campus QuickStart
g. Increase the number of College Information Sessions, Forums, and Showcases at the Sectional level.
h. Review, evaluate, and disseminate sport science and sports medicine information relevant to tennis.
i. Ensure that our juniors and college players are training and competing against each other on a regular basis through the auspices of any and all of the following:
• UST A/IT A Campus Showdowns
• IT A Summer Circuit presented by the UST A
• USTA Pro Tour Transition Camps
• USTA/ITA Summer Collegiate Team
• USTA Junior National Team Dual Matches
