James Blake and Ryan Sweeting have been commenting about how it is unfair to compare USA players in the past with the current players. The media have been harsh towards the lack of results and compare them to Agassi, Sampras, Chang, Courier, etc.
“It could be a little bit unfair,” James Blake told the Memphis Daily News. “But it’s part of what you let yourself in for when you’re on the ATP tour. Guys like (Sam) Querrey and Donald Young are starting to deal with it, guys like Ryan Harrison and Jack Sock, will be dealing with it. I dealt with it, Andy [Roddick] dealt with it, and I know early on Andy got a little frustrated. But you know the questions are going to be part of any press conference. So you just give your stock answer and go on.”
