Open era slams

The grand slams (last won by an American)

Australian: all, women’s (Serena’10) & men’s (Agassi’03)
French, all, ladies (Yahoo) (Serena’13) & men’s (Agassi’99)
Wimbledon: allladies  (Serena’12) & men’s  (Sampras’00)
US Open:  ladies (Serena’14) & men’s (Roddick’03)

The last American man to win a grand slam was Andy Roddick at US Open 2003. Roddick would play three Wimbledon final (2004, 2005 and 2009) but all lost to Roger Federer. The last time was particularly heart breaking: 5–7, 7–6(8–6), 7–6(7–5), 3–6, 16–14. I remembered we were driving home from the piano camp at up state and getting up date from my daughter. I did not think that Roddick would have it but he did courageously, unfortunately lost in a tight tie break. He would retire in 2012, being an one slam champ.
