Why do Americans win US Open so easy while Frenchmen/Aussies/Britons have to wait and be disappointed, not winning on home soil ?
This last few years there were so many American champions at the US Open such as ROddick , Agassi , Sampras or those Williamses.
While in the other grand slams the home fans must wait years after years to see their local boys/girls winning the title. On women's side Mary Pierce was the last frenchwoman to win RG but on men's side Yannick was the last one. When was that ? I've already forgot.
Who was the last Aussi lads to win Aussi Open ? I cannot remember.
Lleyton won US Open and Wimbledon but has yet win Australian Open.
Rafter won US Open twice, reaching finals at Wimbledon but never made it to the finals of Aussi Open.
Philippoussis was the runner-up at both the US Open and Wimbledon.
Wimbledon is even harder, esp for Tim and those on Henman Hill.
Henman had a good run at this year Roland Garros, reaching SF but failed in the quarterfinals on his beloved court.
Can I assume that US Open is the easiest grand slam to win ?
Or American players are just awesome ? Do they feel any pressure at all ?
