Re: Which tennis country has underperformed the most considering their junior results

Sebastien Grosjean had the potential to become the greatest player in history if he had a better backhand so it's France

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: Which tennis country has underperformed the most considering their junior results

In the options given, it is France. Overall, it is not. Reaching top 10 can not be considered as underperforming.
India would be a better option. There probably would be others too.

Leander Paes: Won USO and Wimbledon juniors. Finalist at AO. Junior #1. Career high rank:73. Never reached round 4 of a GS.
Ramesh Krishanan : Won Wimbledon and FO juniors. Junior #1. Career high rank:23. Never reached a GS SF.
Ramanathan Krishnan : Won Wimbledon juniors. Been in top 8 seeds of a GS twice(Before ranking), never reached a GS Final.
Yuki Bhambri: Won AO 09 juniors. Junior #1 for a long time. Unheard of since. Junior GS winners after him have done much better than he has.

Sebastien Grosjean was junior number 1 as singles and doubles, which was unheard of back then.
