Personal Coaches and Recruiting

Most junior tennis players have the services of personal coaches - from their academies, clubs, or high schools. The players' personal coaches often play a role for the college coach in the recruiting process. We put the question to our panel: How valuable in the recruiting process is a personal coach? What type of questions do you ask the coach about your recruit? Do you stay in contact with the coach after your recruit has committed to your program? Story
