There is a big concern in the U.S about where their next Grand Slam champion will come from (same in Australia).
With the input of tennis stars and officials like Andy Roddick, Nick Bollettieri, Patrick McEnroe and other players, CNN’s Open Court explores the question of the what’s keeping the US men from winning titles and what’s to come.
“The biggest thing for me I think is that we have so many sports in this country,” said Roddick whose 2003 US Open title remains the last Slam won by an American man. “I think our best athletes probably get spread out across ten of 12 different sports.
“There are so many different options so I feel it might water down the talent pool for a given sport.”
