Not much depth in American tennis

2:31 pm on 26 June 2009

Wimbledon's forgotten man Andy Roddick was barely noticed as he slipped into the third round of the grasscourt tennis championships.

The American is one of only three players in the men's draw -- along with Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt -- who knows what it feels like to contest a final at the All England Club.

However hundreds of seats lay empty as 6th seeded Roddick beat Russia's Igor Kunitsyn.

Once tipped as the next great hope of American tennis when he won the U.S. Open in 2003, Roddick is likely to be the only American heading into the second week and he says sadly that trend is unlikely to change in the near future....
