Interesting Fact: 1st time in WTA history every player in top 8...

comes from different country. First I thought it is just curious trivia fact, which it also is. Then I though it means something. I think it is because of growing popularity of tennis across the globe. Would you agree?

I guess I misinterpreted it. Every player playing at WTA championships. so the history is a little shorter. See recent post here: http://www.facebook.com/WTA

Re: Interesting Fact: 1st time in WTA history every player in top 8...

Tennis has always been a global sport so I'm not sure it's because of that per se'. If anything I think it's because it's the first time that a single country isnt dominating the sport, there's a more even distrubutuion of talent than ever before. In years past only a few select countries offered the best training facilities, not to mention the prize money increasing to make the sport more lucrative for female athletes in general. Now of days people from all over the world have more access to better training and there's more training abroad than ever before as well. It's a very interesting fact though- thanks for bringing that to our attention.
