the bryans are doing a fabulous job, but dubs is different. we're talking singles men.
with all the college players, juniors, sponsorship, access and money in tennis in the usa i can't imagine why you don't have more top players.
In most countries, athletic boys of all social classes, will play either soccer or tennis. In America, athletic boys will play or do football, basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, track, volleyball, hockey, skateboarding, video games.
We just do not have enough very athletic and hungry boys involved in tennis to beat the odds of producing another champion. Also, back in the day tennis was not as global. Mac did not battle as many well trained Russians, Serbians, Spaniards, etc.
