In the early 2000s, Hewitt (80 weeks) and Roddick (13 weeks) held the No. 1 ranking for a combined 93 weeks before the dawning of the Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Novak Djokovic era began. But there's no question that the aging Hewitt (31 next month) and the aging Roddick (29) have seen their better days. Next up for Hewitt is the up-and-coming Canadian No. 23 Milos Raonic in the third round.
And so that leaves No. 16 John Isner as the only remaining American on the men's side. He has a date with No. 18 Feliciano Lopez of Spain in the third round and if he gets by Lopez he is on course to face --UH OH!-- World No. 2 Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. Let's not get our hopes high, America.
