`This year there were no English-speaking players in the quarter-finals of Roland Garros in either the men or women’s draw' -
This was too kind - As I remember, all the American men were knocked out of RG by the 2nd round. Pitiful!
Now that the Williams sisters seem to be in recession, there are virtually NO American women tennis stars on the horizon. Ashley Harkleroad? Vania King? I don't think so.
Nobody knows where they are...they can never win another slam and they can dominate them for the next 3 years..unpredictable. The WTA is in a rutt completely.
As for mens well hasn't this been obvious for the last 5 years?
