The only time Roddick represents America is when he's playing Davis Cup other than that, he nowhere near represents what opportunities most young Amreicans have been offered to advance their Tennis career. Roddick was chosen by whomever to be the next whatever but in reality, the vast majority of young upcoming Americans don't get the funding that Roddick got and hasn't proven worthy of yet imo.
When the USTA starts going bigtime into putting not only a lot of money into their training programs and actually developing a training program. And offers that to potential players outside of the wealthy bracket in our society, then I would say " Let's go Americans Players "
