The American Men

Andy Roddick's name might very well be mentioned as much over the coming weeks as Perry's has been uttered at Wimbledon. This U.S. Open is the 40th Grand Slam tournament since an American man won a major title, Roddick's at Flushing Meadows in 2003. Used to be unthinkable that the United States would go a full decade without claiming one of tennis' most prestigious titles. Earlier this month, for the only time in the 40-year history of the ATP computer rankings, zero U.S. men appeared in the top 20. John Isner, who is listed at 6-foot-10 and can serve as well as anyone, moved back in; he's seeded 13th and could play Nadal in the fourth round.
