The recent titles and the semi-final and final showings by so many Americans this summer are positive signs of promising US Open performances by the Americans this year. The titles won by John Isner, Sam Querrey, and Madison Keys recently just go to prove that American tennis is not dead yet and could soon claim its rightful place in the world of professional tennis.

Madison Keys wins an all-American final

22-year-old Madison Keys had never won a WTA tournament on her home soil until this past Sunday.

However, she out hit her good friend and Fed Cup teammate, Coco Vandeweghe, 7-6(4), 6-4 in the finals to win the Stanford title last Sunday. Both players used their substantial heights, and they generated enormous pace on their ground shots. It was a high-quality tennis match with monstrous forehands and solid shot-making by both players.

This title was Madison Keys’ third at the WTA level, and she even overcame Garbine Muguruza to win the trophy.

Madison Keys had struggled with a bad wrist before the tournament and was unsure if she could regain top form upon her return to competitive tennis. Both the players are expected to make the top-twenty ranking as a result of their performance at this tournament.

Sam Querrey wins second tournament in Mexico

Sam Querrey beat one of the promising next-generation kids, Thansi Kokinakis, 6-3, 3-6, and 6-2 at the hard-court tournament in Los Cabos, Mexico.

21-year-old Kokinakis was 454 in the ATP rankings going into this tournament and had made a return to competitive tennis in May after eighteen months off due to an injury. Sam Querrey picked his second Mexican title for the year and the tenth overall on the ATP tour. He will move back into the top twenty next week when the rankings are declared.

John Isner serves his way to fourth Atlanta title

John Isner, less than one week ago, used his monstrous serve to get the better of Ryan Harrison in the Atlanta final.

Isner uses his 6-foot-10-inch frame to pummel his opponents with powerful serves delivered with unreachable angles. Isner’s serve is a much-feared weapon that keeps winning matches for him. Now it was Ryan Harrison's turn to be stung by Isner’s kick serves. Isner lives and dies by his serve, and in this match, he thrived and won his fourth Atlanta title with a 7-6(6), 7-6(7) score.

These wins by Isner, Querrey, and Keys just go to prove that American tennis is still alive and kicking.
