Question What counrty do you think has had the most successful WTA players??

Personally i think Russia has done pretty good in that department with 8 players in the top 30 and six of them being in the top 20. The U.S. lost it's flame a while back.

It's true the future doesn't look so bright, but if we're talking about present day, the US did win two majors last year and Russia ZERO.

It will take probably more years than I'll be alive for Russia to even equal the Unites States past success in tennis. But at least they've assured themselves of a bright future with their current crop of talent.

Past- USA

Right Now?? - USA

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

If we are talking about the number of players in the top 30... than of course Russia.

But all those players you named I would still put all of them below Venus/Serena and most of them now behind Davenport. DAvenport will probably be top 10 if not top 5 in her comeback while Petrova, Zvonereva, Safina, Dementieva and Kirilenko don't belong in the top 10 and Chakvetadze and Kuznetsova can be said to be pitiful top 5 players.

I think it's arguable at this point although last year, it was not...last year, I would have said Russia hands down.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: What counrty do you think has had the most successful WTA players??

Russia is definitely a powerhouse but I am not so sure about it's current junior stars. Its top player for instance, Anastassia Pavlyuchenkova, seems to be struggling in adjusting to the pro tour on just the Challenger level.

Doesn't mean she is going to go away, just means I can see the pressure starting to set in with the younger generation of Russian talent as I see a lot more nations improving rapidly.
