American Tennis Hits A New 103 Year Low At Wimbledon

American tennis continues to flounder in recent times. The men continue their struggle as Andy Roddick remains the most recent American male to win a Grand Slam title, that at the 2003 US Open, and no active men have even reached a Slam final.

Now with Serena and Venus Williams slipping as they age, the women are also suffering.

But, following the third round loss today by John Isner in four sets to Felianco Lopez and the withdrawal of 19-year-old Madison Keys to Yaroslava Shvedova, for the first time since 1911 there are no American men or women in the fourth round at Wimbledon!

At least six Americans made it to the third round. And how many other countries can boast a 103 year streak at Wimbledon like the U.S. can?

Tennis Fan Says:

does this mean John McEnroe will soon be looking for a new job … can’t wait …


andrea Says:

Only in America….can a posting be about how there are no Americans left in the draw, but dang! they’ll still find a way to turn it around by saying that their (pre-broken) streak still trumps everyone else’s.


Colin Says:

Exactly what I thought, Andrea. Of course they’d say this relentlessly positive attitude accounts for all the things they do achieve, In fact, their sense of – well, you must call it entitlement – may be the very reason they are not doing well now, because it breeds complacency. Like Mr Micawber, they cling to the idea that something will turn up.
