why do the Americans hate Monte Carlo?

There's not a single US player in the draw. Why do the Americans seem to despise this event? You'd think it would be enticing, a gorgeous ritzy place on the sea, lots of media coverage, hot girls, huge prize money, and a chance to compete against Europe's best. It's not that long a trip, a six or seven hour plane ride from New York. So what's behind the history of the Americans staying away from Monte Carlo?

They're scared that they will get pounded on European soil in front of all the hot girls, and then all the girls will laugh and snicker at them as they run off with the European players.

That was nonsense, I guess.

Because we Americans don't have to do anything we don't want to do because we're AMERICANS!!! So, there!!!

Besides, what attractions can Monte Carlo have that we don't already have in South Beach and Las Vegas?

Probably because there are no more American players who can play on the clay well.

Why do Americans hate the prospect of grinding away endless long rallies in matches they know they are going to lose? Hmmmmmm.....

Re: why do the Americans hate Monte Carlo?

Can you imagine an American in a French region like Monaco? I don't think american players feel well there.

Re: why do the Americans hate Monte Carlo?

I guess only the American players can answer that for you. I am sure they have been asked before? Maybe you can find an article and let us know.
