Thirty years ago this week, there were 24 American men in the top 50 of the world tennis rankings. At this #FrenchOpen  there is one American man in the top 60. My column on a long drought and a green shoot or two in the distance
Tennis coaches in the United States, which had six men ranked in the top 10 in May 1984 but has only one in the top 60 today, are facing a complex problem.

Talked to Michael Chang 25 years after in Paris. He was reflective and sentimental. But this French Open is about much more than nostalgia for Chang. He's coaching Kei Nishikori, the man who should have beaten Nadal on clay this year 
Michael Chang, who upset Ivan Lendl in the fourth round of the 1989 French Open when he was 17, is at Roland Garros on a new mission, as coach of the Japanese star Kei Nishikori.
