They weren't kidding when they talked about the demise of U.S. tennis. I just got a look at the rankings...besides Roddick, Blake, Davenport, and Venus Williams, there's no U.S. player in the top 50. I could *maybe* see Jamea Jackson or Shenay Perry making the top 25 one day but of the rest that are in the 50-100 portion...? I just don't see a whole lot of potential for breakthroughs in the remaining players: 51 Shenay Perry 57 Laura Granville 58 Amy Frazier 67 Jamea Jackson 70 Jill Craybas 73 Meghann Shaughnessy 75 Lisa Raymond 79 Vania King 81 Ashley Harkleroad 91 Meilen Tu It seems to me that quite a few on the bottom of the list have been toiling in the bottom 2/3's of the rankings their entire career. And Venus, Serena (if she ever comes back), and Davenport aren't exactly spring chickens anymore (in tennis years) - all of them have at least one foot in the retirement doorway. Come on, while they seem like genuinely nice people, we can't come up with a player that's better than Patty "wild hair" Schnyder and Elena "I got no serve" Dementieva? It seems even worse the on the men's side. Don't Americans ever go to the Bollitteri Academy anymore? What the heck happened to U.S. tennis?!?!?
