How embarassing is it for U.S. tennis that there is not a single american player in the main draw of a Masters Series event??? There weren't any americans even in qualifying. And just because it is on clay does not grant the typical lazy excuse of: americans don't play well on clay. I am sick and tired of hearing that line. I know Roddick is injured, but where are Blake, Fish, Ginepri????? After the last of his era (Agassi), american tennis will be in an abyss for the forseeable future. Even if you don't count Federer's dominance, there are many young players waiting in the wings who will be at the top of tennis: Nadal, Murray, Djokovic, Berdych, Baghadatis, as well as several young Argentine and Russian prospects. The only thing keeping american tennis buoyant is the Bryan Brothers.
