Unless I am mistaken, there are no Americans playing in the major draw at Marseille or Brazil but they all seemed to have played at the Siebel Open and Kroger St. Jude. Nor do I think any Americans played abroad since the AO. Do the Americans generally stay home until the clay court season? It would seem they would want to play more on clay since that is the surface they struggle with the most. I hope that one of the Americans can dig their heels in and commit to become a better clay court player. Or maybe the American guys just don't care about winning Roland Garros.
