The Week That Was

Impressive runs by both Tommy Haas and Justine Henin-Hardenne in capturing key titles over the weekend. Haas solidified his Top 10 status with an easy triumph over Robin Soderling while Henin overcame her Australian Open PR disaster and dispatched Maria Sharapova, who continues to struggle in finals.

As inspiring as Haas and Henin were, the same cannot be said of the American quartet of Andy Roddick, James Blake, Robby Ginepri and Taylor Dent who went a combined 2-4 this week. Not good for American tennis which seriously lacks any new stars on the horizon – male or female! Check the ranks and point out any U.S. teens ranked among the Top 300. Won’t take you long…

REBECCA Says:

TOMMY HAAS HAS BEGUN TO ACHIEVE RESULTS AND FULFILL EXPECTATIONS AS A PLAYER..INJURY AND FAMILY CIRCUMSTANCES GOT IN THE WAY FORA WHILE. HE IS PLAYING VERY WELL AND I HOPE THAT CONTINUES..REGARDING U.S.TENNIS…I HOPE THAT SOME WORTHY PLAYERS DO RISE UP BUT LET US NOT BE FORCED TO WATCH MEDIOCRE TENNIS MATCHES JUST BECAUSE ITS AN AMERICAN PLAYING(ARE YOU LISTENING ESPN?) I WANT TO SEE THE BEST PLAYERS, REGUARDLESS OF NATIONALITY AND POPULARITY..
