And btw, if we include all of Europe they beat all of America handily, even with less population. The "old" EU of 15 nations I compared with is not the whole story, you know. The US is best nation only because their 50 states have teamed up, in comparison to the 50 nations of Europe, which hasn't.
GOOD, I don't care about your imaginary power ranger country team up against America. I'm glad you acknowledge America as the greatest sporting nation in the world. Your arguement is so stupid though look at the population of countries in the world.

I don't really see any American youngsters with GS winning potential. Some of them will no doubt break the top 20 tough.

Re: American players to look out for?

Look out for Ryan Harrison, he's a huge mug

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

My argument is not stupid at all. I'm making the perfectly reasonable observation that Europe has more great athletes per capita than the US has. So your original argument that the US has "spent" their athletes at other sports cannot be a major part of the explanation for the current US drought in tennis, as Europe has even more athletes than the US in other sports and still have room for several great tennis players.

Re: American players to look out for?

Have we officially given up on Jan Silva then?










(no, I couldn't keep a straight face while I typed that)

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: American players to look out for?

All College clowns with no talent coming through right now. American tennis has gone the way of American heavyweight boxing. Nobody at the top level.

Wait, the guy looks like he's riding a turtle backwards up an incline.
