Brit tennis players: Your point about Greg Rusedski is well taken. I'd be pretty ticked off. But let's face it. Nobody cares. And here's the reason:
Rusedski's defeat leaves Tim Henman as the lone hope to become the first Englishman to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936
This, sadly, is the story every year. Fortunately, there's always another, more meaningful story, that keeps men's tennis mildly interesting. Will there be another Sampras/Agassi showdown at a major. This year, sadly, that possibility didn't exist, and may never again, as Sampras has effectively retired. I guess that's why it's especially difficult to get up for the fortnight this year.
