How exactly does a country "deserve" to have a tournament? I wasn't aware that the UN or someone handed them out out like lollies.

Tournaments basically exist where it is commercially viable for them to do so ... i.e. where there is enough tradition and infrastructure, interest from the public, entrepreneurial expertise in the sport, etc. Tennis is big business in the countries where that is the case. The same applies to any other sport, whether it be soccer, volleyball, cricket, gridiron football ... you name it. All these sports have major activity in some countries and not others.

I expect that Russian tennis will go ahead enormously because of the current success of the Russian stars (Marat, Masha, Nastya, etc), but it will take time for this to translate into enough public interest, entrepreneurial expertise, etc.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Or he can look into the future.

If yu take the number of tournies per continenet its more even, which i think is a fairer way of looking at considering the population and Wealth of the US compared to 1 single other country.

N. America -14
Europe- 26 (including russia and turkey)
Australasia -15 (including China)
Middle east -2 (3 if yu include turkey)
Africa -1
S.America- 2 (including mexico)

Spain and Russia need some/more! U.S.A. could spare one or two; Italy also does not need three!
