Tennis in Thailand--boys 10's through 16's

I was really impressed with the younger levels of tennis in Thailand--well, at this major PTT tournament--apparently, there are four or five different circuits--not unified...so weird--there's dunlop, toyota, ptt (oil company), lawn tennis (the biggie as they are tied to the national team development, itf, and another one so this PTT is the biggest in January and affliated with Thai Tennis magazine and Lawn Tennis.

ages 10

very good level and very skilled with court management

boys 16's

another solid level, but the boys aren't that big as their counterparts at the 16's and 18's Nationals in Hawaii.

Deadliest shot for boys 10

So similar to America...

I don't get why the Thai kids don't break through, the level is so high, but they do have boys 8 here and 10... so maybe that's alot of pressure at a very young age.
