The United States Swings in Tennis at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Since the return of tennis in 1988, the United States has never been left without a medal in all disciplines. Come to think of it, this statistic is interesting: In fact, they not only represent the nation with the most medals, but also the ones with the most medals in every discipline in the Open Era. Specifically, they 4 in masculine singular, 7 in feminine singular, 4 in masculine doubles, 6 in feminine doubles and 3 in mixed doubles. Prior to this disastrous version, the most disappointing result was the one that occurred in 2004 in Athens, when the only medal around the neck of the Americans was a silver mardi fish In the masculine singular form. Just to make a comparison with recent history, the US tennis trip at Rio 2016 concluded with a gold, silver and bronze medal. These numbers clearly testify to the uninteresting moment of American tennis, which also struggles for many years in a crisis with men, to find worthy heirs to the Williams sisters (now forty years old) in women.
