Looking at the Palermo draw, I see 5 Italians in the 2nd round, and I see that if they all win 5/8 quarterfinalists could be Italian :eek: Unlikely, but it still got me thinking:

Is there a tournament you remember in the past where the home players did really well? I'm more talking about smaller tournaments, so Serena and Venus in the US Open final doesn't really count :ras:

2002 US Open was a clean sweep for Americans in singles.
Final eight had 5 Americans-Rena, Vee, linds, Jen, and Monica.
Finalist and Champion for both men and women- Americans all the way-Pete, Agassi, Venus and Serena.:worship:

Palermo would be better with Schiavone, Garbin, and Vinci :shrug:
What about Szavay winning Budapest two years in a row after losing in R1 at Wimbledon :worship:

I don't remember the men's results, but the Russian women at Beijing 2008 swept the medals. However, I thought everyone played horible at the Olympics. Everyone!

Look at some of the 70s or 80s results at the US Open when US players made up more than 70% of the top 100 - there's probably at least one with 100% US quarter-finalists.

I'm pretty sure a lot of the American tournaments have been dominated by American players. :lol:

There are countless all American finals, many all American SF's, and several dominant QF's even in majors.

My point is the Russians swept the women's Olympic medals. How hard is that to figure out? I don't really care about home tournaments.
