The women’s side really has only two players who can win it all—Serena and Venus.
The American men, however, are looking awful. An American hasn’t captured a Wimbledon men’s title since Pete Sampras won it in 2000. It is sad to say, but the Americans don’t have much hope.
Mardy Fish played very poorly at the French Open, losing to Giles Simon in straight sets; and Andy Roddick didn’t play, but is quickly learning that having a serve can’t win Grand Slams.
Everyone is making a big deal out of 19-year-old Ryan Harrison. After all, he took Robin Soderling to four sets this year. At the end of the day, what matters is if you win or lose, and he lost. He is just like a Donald Young or a Sam Querrey. America hypes these young guys, but unfortunately they don’t turn into anything. Maybe in another 10 years America will have a great tennis player, but it’s not looking too good right now.
