J Mac, Agassi, Courier, Chang, Connors, Roddick, Ashe, and Sampras all grew up playing on hard courts and the rest of the world was playing on clay.
It is all about exposure why the USA is not dominating in tennis. In Europe and Asia, tennis is still on tv on a regular basis.
It is sad to say but Americans would rather watch a race car painted like a pack of Lifesavers go around in circles for 4 hours than watch tennis. You have to give Nascar credit, they marketed their product perfectly.
