Should a Grand Slam be in Russia?
what is wrong with this picture? 4 of the most powerful nations in the world, Australia, France, Great Britain, and the U.S. having 4 most important tournaments in tennis history, yet they can't even produce the kind of talent to go along with their household names? Seems like all the talents are comming from Russia. I mean, when was the last time someone from their own country winning their slam besides Serena winning the US Open in 02 and Roddick in 03. At the moment, none of the top 4 countries have any real talents that would take over when the williams sisters, Amelie Mauresmo, Mary Pierce, Leyton Hewitt, and Andy Roddick retires. Yea, traditions have been around forever, but things do change, why can't there be a 5th or 6th grand slam? It could be in well-deserved Russia for developing so many great up-comming talents.
