The Newport Beach breakers are coached by UCI men's coach Trevor Kronemann. :yeah:

Well it's called the WTT Pro League so I wonder if the NCAA considers Melichar a pro? :confused:

There was a woman who wore a UCI shirt, I dunno if she was asst coach of the Breakers or something,

I think it's Vana Yamamoto, Assistant Coach of UCI women's team(uploaded some photos at my blog)

And aren't amateurs allowed at WTT? Google search says;

'A professional and amateur co-ed tennis league created by Billie Jean King'

Oh well, whatever :lol:

Domijan is the only amateur that plays full-time. Melichar is a "wildcard" player, but she is definitely an amateur. She is looking at schools.

The rule last year was that amateurs could only play on an all amateur team. Back then, once you were an amateur and playing on a pro team you were automatically (whether you wanted it or not) considered a pro.
