A poll creator can have his own opinion, right?

You can't really say "underperformed", junior results are fine, but they don't guarantee anything.

Tipsy was top junior, won AO I think? Nole didn't bother with juniors much, no idea about Viktor

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

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

Have France really underperformed though? Only if you're judging it on senior Slams won. Monfils, Gasquet and Tsonga won junior slams and have at least been top 10 players. Look at some of the other junior slam winners.

Todd Reid (AUS)- Wimbledon 2002
Florin Mergea (ROM)- Wimbledon 2003
Carlos Cuadrado (ESP)- RG 2001
Ryan Sweeting (USA)- USO 2005

What have these players done since?

Indeed, since Murray's USO junior win in 2004, only Cilic (RG 2005) has made the top 10 of ANY junior slam winner and a lot of them have disappeared into obscurity.

Almost every country has great players at the junior level who never make it in tennis.

you confused the thread question. it's asking which countries players underpreform once they go PRO after having great junior results

as you just stated, it's obviously France because their players often dominate juniors only to fail at pro. of course fail is subjective because some have had good top 10 success but none have been able to be top dogs like they were in their junior career

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3
