The story that I mentioned speaking to Greg Garber of ESPN.com about last week was posted today, and it is a very comprehensive and balanced look at the question with many comments from prominent players with college experience. I do think Garber slights Somdev Devvarman when he says that his first round loss to Goldstein after qualifying for the Legg Mason demonstrates a need to return to school. Devvarman beat Isner not once but twice during those 12 days in Athens, and tonight even John McEnroe was calling for an Open wildcard for Devvarman after watching Isner win in straight sets to set up a meeting with Federer on Saturday. (I obviously do not agree with those commenters who have dissed Devvarman's game recently.)
And for Austin, here's one of the few stories I could find on Wayne Odesnik, from Michelle Kaufman of the Miami Herald.
