    At a time when I really wanted for the US men to excel on French soil (or clay), they really stank it up.

    Now we again have to wait till next year.

    Jack Sock will rise, along with his GOAT shoes.

    Well we have lots of good ladies. That aint bad. Many countries dont have any good players period. Look at the once great swedes. Biggest tennis collapse in history

    Given how little they played in the spring clay season, not surprised at all. And I don't blame them - the grass and summer hard and fall hard is where they can climb the rankings and maybe win some smaller events.

    Even when the US men were at/near the top of the game, they weren't raking in FO's.

    Isner is fortunate to be level in his match with Millman, splitting TBs after saving SPs in the second.
