(Inicdentally, the significantly classier Malagasy player, Zarah Razafimahatratra, mentioned US college tennis as an option in an interview at, I think, the French Open, where she was competing in the juniors.)
For what it's worth, the US team at the Universiade is Krista Damico, and Courtney Collins (Memphis); they were knocked out of the doubles draw by the Mexican team of Urbina and Pulido today. Natasha Marks is representing us, but only selected for doubles. http://match.sz2011.org/Scheduledetail2/TEENG.htm
As best I can understand with my long forgotten schoolboy French, it says she's just completed her "matrix" (which I take to be the South African equivalent of US high school graduation). She's returning home to Madagascar. She's preparing her application for US college, but is also considering trying the pros, but currently has no funding to do that.
