yeah i know what u mean, but Brazil at least gives more support to players than other countries in South America. In Peru for example, they dont support tennis players Luis Horna needs to get more support and money .

In Brazil, only Guga has sponsors.

the others players every year fight a lot to get a sponsor. In womens side is worst the situation.

There is a player named Marcos Daniel. he is very good but he has no sponsors. It's very hard for him to collect money to travel.
Here, there are a lot of wasted talents.

We have lots of good guys coming out. If we got supporting programs and had at least a little bit of organization, people like Saretta, Simoni, Sa, Costa, the up-and-coming Cubas, Rosa, Engel and Marcos Daniel, among many others like Ferreiro, Julio Silva, etc... would have a lot brighter future. Its just a matter of someone having enough will to help, and knowledge of course. I have to speak english to come here and talk tennis with someone who actually knows something about it. In our country, its difficult.
Btw, hi there Pablo

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

Re: which country has the best program to support players and why?

one of the best youth educations are in Belgium IMO.

For such a small country they have produced Justine Henin, Kim Clijsters and ITF junior number 1 Kirsten Flipkens, and in the past Sabine Appelmans & Dominique Van Roost.
and don't forget to mention Xavier Malisse, Olivier Rochus at the boy's side and also earlier Filip Dewulf.

Go Belgian players!

Gilles Elseneer - Xavier Malisse - Dick Norman - Christophe & Olivier Rochus - Kristof Vliegen
Dominique Coene - Steve Darcis - Frederic De Fays - Niels Desein - Jeroen Masson - Stefan Wauters

None of us know. Unless we work for a Federation.
