Argentina- Fat Dave, plus Del Pony's body croaks it after like three hours of play.

The fact they won multiple consecutive big titles suggest that they are at least fitter players than the french players.
Look at Gasquet: the guy tires after just 2 sets!

Jesse Witten alone would be enough for the US to grab this category.

Nah, it's just the French are... French. Winning is not their thing.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Which big tennis country have generally the most unfit players???

French players:

Gasquet - dies after two sets
Monfils - is injured more times than not
Tsonga - too heavy for tennis
Simon - how long has he been out again?

Isner, Querrey aren't your archetypical washboard abs kind of guys, but they can play a lot and hang in there

Argie players, the older generation: Nalbandian, Puerta, Junqueira, Acasuso...

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Monfils and Tsonga are in great shape. Definitely not unfit!

Re: Which big tennis country have generally the most unfit players???

Muscles don't equal fitness, Monfils gets injured more times than not because of his playing style, he looks like a mummy on court sometimes with all the bandages and that's a fitness issue

Tsonga has a boxer complexion, he's too heavy to keep playing day after day sometimes and tires in long long matches

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
