And how many players in those 4 gigantic damp countries are in the top 150?

I'd like to know how many French players are in the top 150 actually.. it's probably pretty revealing.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Tsonga wont win a grand slam. So it gives you an answer about the France's elusive slam fo the next 3-4 years.

Re: Who will end their Grand Slam hoodo first: France or Great Britain???

France are by a country mile the biggest underachieving country in male SINGLE (so DCs don't count) tennis considering all the resources and money they invest in tennis and how much popular this sport is in this country.

Great Britain have far less tennis players and less tennis courts than France and generally, tennis is not as important as in France so their GS hoodoo (until Murray ended it recently) must be put into some perpective comparing to France's GS hoodoo.

France without any GS male winner for 30 years, it's a bit like if Brazil couldn't manage to win a football WC for around 50 years.
