Where do you come from?

Please vote and tell us what country or what continent do you come from.

Thank you!


To the WTAworld.com Administrators: If possible, please do not move this thread to the Non-Tennis. I personally think it is tennis related because it's about the WTA players' fans. Thank you very much.

But I think many Russian posters don't live in Russia.

I know there are quite a lot of posters from Eastern Europe, but I just can't list all those countries.

And how can you talk about "ignorance" when you yourself only joined this board about 8 days ago and haven't even started a single thread?

And since only 10-option poll is available, I had to select the countries that have more members on this board according to my observation.

Below are my answers to your question:

1. Not all the posters have flags.

2. Not all the posters use the flags of their countries.

3. Nobody would have time to go around various threads to count those flags/locations to get the number of posters from different countries.
