Wimbledon 2010 Draw: The Best American Chances to Take Home the Hardware

For U.S.A. fans still looking to stick it to the Brits after their anti-climactic 1-1 tie in the World Cup last weekend, the sports world won't leave Americans waiting for very long.

Wimbledon begins on Monday in London, and with that, 13 Americans are vying to become the first U.S. Wimbledon champ since Pete Sampras won it all back in 2000.

Now, granted, some of these American guys stand about as much of a chance as the Detroit Lions do against the Indianapolis Colts on any given Sunday. (In other words, unless you hate money, don't bet on them winning Wimbledon.) Americans falling into that category include Jesse Levin, Ryan Sweeting, and Rajeev Ram, among others.

Then again, flash back to last year's phenomenal five-set Wimbledon final, and you'll remember that American Andy Roddick was rallying back-and-forth with the eventual champion, Roger Federer, in a fifth set that no one is likely to forget any time soon.

Without further adieu, let's check out the six best chances that the United States has to take home the Wimbledon men's singles championship on July 4.
