At least there are two representatives in the women's circuit. The Williams sisters. But Andy Roddick's retirement leaves the United States without an active men's Grand Slam champion for the first time in 129 years. With him goes the face of American men's tennis.
There was another 'first' on 4th August, 2010, when no American turned up in the top 10 of the ATP Ranking. Since 1973, the year when tennis ranking system started, it never happened before.
If we consider the first 100, then only eight from United States will come up. Amongst them John Isner, who is at 11 holds the highest ranking. After Isner, there are Sam Querrey (22nd), Mardy Fish (23rd), Roddick (27th), Ryan Harrison (51st), Brian Baker (55th), Michael Russell (94th), Jesse Levine (97th).
Have we gone through the ranking points of these nine players, the facts would be more alarming. Amongst them no one is with more than 2300 ranking point. Isner with 2250 is the highest. Apart from him only three have more than thousand ranking point- Querrey 1310, Fish 1255 and Roddick 1095. The others are hanging there some how with Harrison 695, Baker 656, Russell 454 and Levine 651 points.
