Which region will be the strongest in women's tennis next decade?

North America,the US specifically, has been so strong for decades,as well as the western Europe.However,as tennis gets more popularized worldwide,Russia and some Eastern european countries become strong enough to compete with some traditional powers.And some new comers such as China,India,Japan,S America now are also showing some signals to be competitors.So,what do you think about the development in the next ten years?

ummm....

I presume that Eastern Europe and Russia will take over, but Asia shouldn't be too far behind.

Russia. Look at the depth in the current Russian field. Is there any reason to expect it won't continue to produce top 30 players?

I am worried about Chinese younger players,I haven't seen any talented players except the Chinese big three Zheng,Li and Peng

The same for the US,their younger players must disappoint people considering they are a tradtional tennis power.

The U.S. has some good prospects in Oudin, Keys, Glatch, McHale, and a few others.. but yes, overall American tennis is hurting.

80%+ of the top 100 is made of europeans.

Tennis is in decline everywhere else except for a few emerging countries.

The devision on Western and Eastern is a typical 'postsoviet' division. Europe is more complex than this. Specially that some of so called 'Eastern European countries' aren't really Eastern at all.

As for the topic. I guess Europe will still be in charge

Why are the Polish so keen not to be considered "Eastern European" then?
