I do not know about you, but ever since Pete and Andre retired, mens tennis hasn't been the same. And with Roddicks demise at the US open, their chances do not seem promsing. America, whats gone wrong?

I think that American tennis has fallen since Sampras and Agassi, but is on the rise again with young players such as Sam Murray and Donald Young.

I agree that American tennis has been declining over he past years, with Andy Roddick unperforming as such along with James Blake. Despite this, why don't you have a look at the Davis Cup? They put up a valiant fight against Spain last weekend, with Sam Querrey taking a set off the world number one, Nadal. I reckon success in the Davis Cup for America could be crucial for top players like Roddick, Blake.

I agree. I had my hopes on Andy Roddick but with recent injuries and not being able to win any major tournaments like the US Open, I'm slightly disappointed. I've been a fan of his since I was younger and saw him win the US open in 2003. From there, I've watched every match I possibly could. I just hope he can win another grand slam before he retires.
