I note that European men have won the last 18 Grand Slams and this
doesn't look changing any time soon. Surely this must be a record? All
the yanks and aussies are useless these days.

no doubt, it's the darkest days for US tennis in the Open era. Probably
ever.

sampras and agassi left and .. absolutely no one stepped in to their shoes.

Murray is Scottish only when he loses :-)

BTW, the expectation around Murray in the UK is getting intense
already - even his non-event of a first round match was being analysed
in detail in the non-tennis media. If he actually wins this tournament
then it's going to be ridiculous - and I don't even want to think what
will happen if he wins Wimbledon ...
