American Tennis..Whatever happened?

Wasn't there a time when Sam Querry was touted as the Great American hope on the Tour? Roger Federer defeated him 6-4 6-2 6-2. With the fall of John Isner in five sets there are officially no American men left at the All-England Championship. I can't think of a time in American tennis history when the nation was at such a low point on the court. Whatever happened to the tennis tradition that gave the world Tilden, Budge, Gonzalez, Trabert, Smith, Ashe, Connors, McEnroe, Sampras, Courier, Agassi and Roddick? Players who could win let alone compete in Slams.
