The American tennis elite believed that tennis would always be played on fast hard courts and never thought to develop all-round players as a result. Even now you can hear Patrick McEnroe always talking about "first strike tennis" and the forehand serve combination. That won't win in today's conditions against players that are actually athletic. Even the American's forehands are overrated generally, they can hit it hard but they aren't truly exceptional shots.
