I vote for Australia too. I think the chances of a real talent being recognised are much higher in Australia because that country has a real sports culture.

Russia is currently the best WTA tennis country since they provide the most young talents but in terms of top players it is Belgium off course since they hold the first 2 spots in the world and had the best junior player with Kirsten Flipkens last year (winning US Open & Wimbledon).

I´m not sure about the Belgium having the best players part. Yeah by the rankings, but me still thinks that those famed two sisters still have the upperhand. Too bad they are injured to know for sure.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

With 40% of the top 10 consisting of US players I have to go with the US. Not only is the US tied with Belgium at having the most players in the top 5, the US also has more players in the top ten than any other country with 4, and they also have more players in the top 100 with 13 compared to any other country. Russia is second with eleven.

Yeah, but the US is a much bigger country. So I think Belgium is the best, as it's such a small country.

With that kind of logic look at the Williams family of less than 10 family members!!!!!!!!!! ....but I do get ur point though....

It's funny cuz with all the top players, the number one player (BEL) as well... they all come to the US to train, there's got to be some reason behind that....
