sunday survey: yankee dreams

american-flag09

Men’s tennis in America hasn’t shined for a while on the ATP Tour, the last slam coming for a Yank at the 2003 USO when Roddick took the crown. It was an especially topsy turvy season for Roddick, James Blake and Sam Querrey in 2009.

With the new year around the corner, we wonder:

Which American man will step up big in 2010? Can Isner follow his US Open success? Can Ginepri prove Indy wasn’t a fluke? Will Taylor Dent continue his comeback? Was Wimbledon the last stand for Andy? Or a sign that he wants it more than ever? Can James Blake find his fire again? What’s next for (now-injured) Sam Querrey? And who – just who – will be the next big American star? Buchanan? Harrison? McClune?!

There are plenty of names to talk about, plenty of pros and cons to each and every player, but TSF is curious to know what you think about the future of men’s tennis in America – especially in 2010.

    Despite it all, Andy Roddick will still be the “face” of American Men’s Tennis for quite some time. His improved fitness and mental attitude will keep him in the top ten for some time. Will he ever win another Slam? Who knows? As for who could the next fresh face, it’s still hard to say. Maybe Sam Querrey but he’d have to be more consistent in the big events.

    I hope Roddick will win another slam. I think Stefanki has worked wonders with his game.
