List of famous American tennis players with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

For a tennis playing nation that has sustained excellence across decades and cultural shifts, America has produced some outstanding players like Serena Williams and Venus Williams, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Andy Roddick, to name a few. Once a force in tennis, before the Aussies and Swedes took over, America has won twice as many Grand slams than any other nation. While the current tennis scene of America is facing a grand slam drought, especially men’s tennis, it has managed to rake up a few laud-worthy success with its women tennis force (think the Williams sisters!). America has been pining to breed more homegrown champions since. But that doesn’t undermine the greatness of this great sporting nation in tennis. The past players' records and longevity have set high standards for others to admire and strive for. Never mind whether you are a baseball, basketball, football or a hockey fan, it pays to acquaint yourself with tennis greats of America. Read the biographies to know the timelines, life stories and interesting trivia & facts related to the lives of famous American tennis players.
