Sam Querrey is a remarkable guy. He is exceeding in tennis as well in school. Winning the Easter Bowl ITF is not an easy thing to do. I think he will be the next Rising American Star!!!


Winning the Easter Bowl is nothing. A different guy does it every year, and almost none of them winds up making any mark on the ATP Tour. Also, I happen to know Peter Smith from his days at Fresno State. I can assure you that he's every bit as self-interested as the USTA. And I'm not sure it's such a good idea for a budding young tennis phenom to waste a year playing college tennis-- taking classes studying, practicing and competing against guys who aren't that great. But I don't know that Querrey is a phenom. I've simply never seen him play. I have noticed his name on several Challenger draws over the past year or so, but I don't think he's accomplished much. College would probably be a good idea for him. At least one player I know quit college a year early to turn pro. Now he's 27 with no college degree and 300 world ranking. Not an enviable position to be in.
