With Andy Roddick's loss Wednesday, no U.S. men reached the third round, the first time that's happened at a Grand Slam event in 31 years. Williams and Capriati were two of four top-10 American women still in the tournament.

``I guess it's up to us to keep America alive here,'' Capriati said. ``It's a different game out on the clay. For most of the American guys, it's difficult out there for them. For women it's more of an all-court game.''

L'Equipe, France's leading daily sports newspaper, ran a small headline Thursday saying ``U.S. Go Home.'' Written in English, the headline accompanied a chart comparing American results with other countries.
