Players who represented different nationalities Thread

there seem to be more and more players who change nationalities for different reasons, so i thought it would be a good idea to create a thread for all those. off the top of my head, those came to my mind:

tommy haas: germany --> USA (hasn't played a match yet for them)

dustin brown: jamaica --> germany

korolev/kukushkin/golubev: russia --> kazakhstan

amer delic: USA --> bosnia and herzegovina

teimuraz gabashvili: georgia --> russia

ivan lendl: czechoslovakia --> USA

not sure about vassallo arguello, did he actually compete under italian flag once?

i think we will see more and more players in the future who switch nationality. what do you think about it? also feel free to add more players in case i forgot them.

brown changed last week, ATP has already updated his profile, but he is still considered jamaican in the draw.

Re: Players who represented different nationalities

I remember Cecil Mamiit and Eric Taino changing from USA to Philippines. Ivo Klec from Germany to Slovakia. Jean-René Lisnard and Thomas Oger from France to Monaco. And I'm quite sure Ivan Dodig was Bosnian some time ago.

Re: Players who represented different nationalities

Switching nationalities?

Tomas Behrend is a Brazilian played for Germany.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
