Since I have done this about a month ago, Kazakhstan (Selyutina) replaced Sweden (Carlsson), and a few slight changes for Italy (+1), Switzerland (+1) and Germany (-2).

Unfortunately this was an injury filled year for the Canadians <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Vanessa Webb, and Maureen Drake missed nearly the first half of the season, and have dropped significantly due to that.

Sonya had a rotten year, also has injuries right now which haven't helped the confidence level.

On the bright side, Marie-Eve Pelletier finished the year up at 145, which is an improvement of about 70 spots from her year end rank in 2000. Considering she's only 19 still I am hoping we will see her continue to rise with experience of playing on the circuit, and hopefully reach top 100 status with Nejedly. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Thanx a lot for the stats Dom <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

thanx for Stats Doc <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I'm pretty sure we , Russia will have around 15-20 players in top 100 in 3 years or so.

Glad to see Irina Selyutina finally fulfilling her potential <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

When and who will be the next Belgian in top 100 ( previous ones dont count)

Thank you all! <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />If you're interested in these stats I can make a monthly update, it may be interesting to see the situation after the Australian Open. It doesn't take much time to compile them thanks to the ranking by country which is available on sanexwtatour.com. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What a pity, Japan used to have about 7 ranked in the Top 100. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

It just shows how much the game has changed...

Thanks for the stats, Domenico!

Like Luke, I am stunned at Japan's reversal of fortune. They used to have a handful of players in the top 30. It seems with the retirement of Date (who acted as a sort of mother figure for the Japanese team), that Japanese tennis has been somewhat rudderless.

I look for Columbia (Zuluaga) and France (Pierce) to add a significant presence to their totals.

A few naysayers compared the modern list, with 17 Americans, to 20 years ago, when Americans comprised about 60 of the top 100, and asked what was "wrong" with the Americans. If they knew what they were talking about, they'd see it's a case of what's right with the rest of the world. With a very few exceptions, most countries of the world have produced their best player ever in the last 20 years. Considering the global nature of the tour, somewhere between 15-20 top 100 players is the right amount for the "dominant" country.

about 20 years ago , 60% of the tour was in USA , thats why there was so many US players in top 100.

Now US has less than 10% of the tour and double the % of players.
