Though it hardly compares to the frustrating wait British tennis fans have had for a home player to win the Wimbledon singles, Americans feel another US men’s singles winner is long overdue.
There was a time when American players dominated the event. In fact, it has happened twice in the open era, firstly when Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe battled it out in the late 1970s and early ‘80s.

Connors won the first of his five singles titles in 1974, but there would be no all-US...

Though British tennis fans will all say the greatest thrill of all would be to see one of their own win a Wimbledon singles title, it’s at the US Open where we’ve had our best opportunities.

It is a tale of contrasting fortunes building up to the US Open for the current world number one and a woman looking capable of taking back that spot.

Current world number one Caroline Wozniacki has been having a nightmare time and suffered a second successive early exit from the Western and Southern Open.

The Dane lost 6-4 7-5 to American teenager Christina McHale in Cincinnati and that came only a week after a first round exit in Toronto. Those who bet on US Open...

Roger Federer may have had a low-profile season by his usual high expectations, but he has issued a warning to his rivals by stating he is on the verge of something big coming into the US Open.

The Swiss star has just turned 30 years of age and has won 16 Grand Slam titles – including five consecutive US Open tournaments between 2004 and 2008 – but he has not won a major title since the Australian Open in 2010.

Failure to win the US Open will make 2011 the first season...

Juan Martin del Potro impressed tennis fans in Los Angeles, yesterday, by ousting Yonkers-born player, James Blake, 6-4, 7-6, to progress to the quarterfinals of the Farmers Classic. The Argentine, who is expected to be a contender for the US Open in New York, described the encounter as a "really tough match". Those following the US Open 2011 tennis odds should bear this in mind.

The Farmers Classic is the second male-only tournament in the US Open Series, and the third...
