The sad fact is that Americans love winners-not the occasional win at the Hamlet Cup or Newport but SLAMS and TM SERIES. How many fans set up Tivo-vcr for a Coria vs unknown French Qualifier? Or would they tune into Roddick-Hell this country actually watches American Idol??? PATHETIC The Coria match was a blast to watch-the Frenchman was playing huge and with some more tight match experiences on his racquet he'll be playing in the 2nd week for some time. The problem is that tennis doesn't have the exposure necessary to sell players outside of the US lower than 10 in the world. I have yet to see Nadal. I'm frustrated yet 10 minutes of tennis = better than 50 games of NBA or MLB for me.
