Anyway you slice it America has one hope and that was Andre Agassi but Andre will be retiring soon. Agassi is 36 his era is over. However, the current generation of young American men such as Roddick, Fish, Blake,Ginepri and Dent are a huge dissapointment. These young guys aren't even top 5 material anymore. The argument has been give them time. How much time? Roddick should of won 3 or more slams by now. And as for Blake he's a choke artist. And Blake's attitude in interviews are really distrurbing. He tries to brush it off I think he's trying to act confident but the results are the same. 0-9 in five set matches certainly doesn't make someone a slam contender. Mardy Fish pulls out of Wimbledon because of the flu. If he was so sick why even bother playing? And I want to point out many tennis champions from Sanchez Vicario, and Graf and many others have played tennis feeling sick with the flu. Sanchez won the US OPEN in 1994 with the flu. I think Fish pulled out because he just didn't have the belief or the balls to believe he could win today. And Ginepri he can't seem to win a match. Dent is just plain fat. The American media have a right to rip these choke artists to shreads. There is no excuses. These young guys just aren't good enough. I don't think anyone expected them to duplicate Sampras or Agassi's success because they aren't as talented. However, I do believe people expected these guys each them to be contending in the slams. Very dissapointing.
