I do think most of them will lose in 2R, besides the bigger names

I do think this is a little Fluke that we're 8-0 ATM but I don't think american womens tennis is in such a bad state than it was two or so years ago. American girls are stepping up.

Na Mug, next time you feel a urge to place your fingers near the keyboard, just don't.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

It's a bit hilarious this is happening at RG. It's definitely flukeish but atm, we'll take it.

I think Lepchenko is going to spoil it, just lost second set to Pervak after having a few matchpoints.

Not really, it started at last year's USO where something like 9 won first RDS(Serena,Vee,McHale,Stephens,Coco,Keys,Falconi,K ing) and about 5 made it through to the 3rd.....and that had been the most on both accounts since like the 2007 AO!!

She was up 6/2 4/0 and 6-4 in the TB

Oh well, she's still fighting in the 3rd. But it's nerve racking as *bleep* since I can't even watch the match

Re: Rebirth of American Tennis @ RG 2012: Yes or No

A bit of a fluke that this is happening at RG, but not a fluke in terms of this happening overall. USA tennis has been on the rise for a long time coming. If you notice, many of those girls who won are young. Christina, Lauren, Sloane, Melanie, Irina, and Alexa are all 22 and under. If you look at junior results, the Americans have been one of the top junior producing countries the past few years. This trend is continuing as our '94-'96 girls are proving they are top notch also AND that they can play on clay. Grace Min, Jessica Pegula, Allie Kiick, Madison Keys, Sachia Vickery, Victoria Duval, and of course junior number 1 Taylor Townsend are all names to watch out for. The '91-'93 generation is just paving the way.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn
