Lightbulb Hold on a second here...are you telling me Tennis Canada did something right?

Someone please explain how this is possible.

This has to be a mistake but how in the world is a Canadian tennis player threatening to be a TOP 100 player and even being mentioned as a TOP 10 player by ESPN?

Some countries produce good players despite their federations. Not saying it's the case here since i have no idea about Canada.

Canada produces good hockey players and nothing else. More kids in Canada play soccer than hockey yet the Men's National team has been to the World Cup one time and scored 0 goals in three losses at that only World Cup.

Every single Federation of any sport in Canada is a complete joke but Milos Raonic is making Tennis Canada look good somehow.

Is the Swedish federation doing a good job because Soderling is top5? One doesn't preclude the other.

It is up to the player at the end of the day, not the country.

If the talent is there, they can stand out.

Serbia and other countries out there were never tennis nations to begin with.

They just had hard working players and they happened to raise their games to the point to reach another level.

Motivation, talent, and determination are all key.
