Question Strange that the top 3....

are from tiny countries. Denmark (5.5 million), Czech Republic (10.5 million), Belarus (9.5 million) are small in population. How is that possible?

Because they know how to find a real talent easily in such small pool of people. unlike some pretenders from the big countries.

Vika moved to USA when she was 14 to train in better conditions. Maybe people from smaller countries are working harder for performance.

Re: Strange that the top 3....

well, denmark and belarus really only have one player each (okay 2 in the case of BLR), so it's not that strange. the czech republic on the other hand has 8 players in the top 100 (i include no. 101 hlavackova for the sake of it ), and that's really impressive.

Re: Strange that the top 3....

Funny that you started thinking about it just now I mean, Switzerland have both Federer and Hingis, Belgium at the same time had both Clijsters and Henin Serbia is a small country, too.
Btw, I think Imperfect Angel is right

Point taken. I went off memory from one of my business classes many years ago. Thanks.

Czech Republic (Czechoslovakia) always produced brilliant tennis players: Kodes, Navratilova, Mandlikova, Lendl, Sukova, Novotna etc. even Hingis can be counted. No surprise there
