Re: Which country breaks the slam drought next?

French tennis is really the equivalent of England in football.
When you know how important that sport is in this country (number of players, money invested,etc...) and if you consider how many Davis Cups they've won for the last 25 years, it's quite ridiculous that none of their male players was capable of winning even a single GS for the last 30 years!!

I'd say their GS malediction is even worse than Great Britain's malediction (which is not anymore thanks Murray) considering the ressources they put on this sport and the number of players they have.
Tennis in Great Britain is nowhere near as important and practiced as it is in France, despite what the English media and press would make you think.

France (Tsonga) or Czech Rep (Berdshit with a lucky draw) has to be it.

Forget it. My twin sons (born in 2009) already started training. So Croatia in 2030.

Raonic will soon put an end to Canada's suffering, after over 150 years of desperate tennis drought.
