Seles dumped on Yugo/Serbia by playing for the USA

the Uber-Babe dumped on Serbia and Australia, in which order, i'm not entirely sure

Martina Navratilova dumped on the Czech Republic by playing for USA

Hana Mandlikova (spelling?) may have dumped on the Czech Republic by playing for Australia (not entirely sure of that one, but it's good enough for a CKB ITT)

Anna Smashnova dumped Russia (or Belarus, not sure which) to play for Israel.

Pierce dumped Canada for France AND the U.S. because she is a citizen of both those countries but not of Canada where she was born.

Manuella Maleeva dumped Bulgaria to play for Switzerland. Elena Wagner dumped Russia to play for Germany.

I don't know if this is counted as dumping but Manuela Maleeva changed her nationality from Bulgarian to Swiss after her marriage and naturally started playing for Switzerland.
