I have no problem with it I just thought it was interesting :). It would be hypocritical of an Australian Tennis supporter to have a problem with it when 9 out of our 16 top players weren't born in Australia ( Luczak, Ball, Matosevic, Lindahl, Ebden, Tomic, Junaid, Kadir and Smeets)

Yes. That doesn`t speak well of Australian tennis on these days. I remember that while in Australia I saw plenty of tennis courts everywhere and people is definitely literate with tennis information. Australian tennis organization seemed to be very well organized for what I saw. Why do u think that Australia cannnot produce competitive players on these days? (OK, there are a few players that look like proyects but this is really far away according to what Australia did in the past). I would like to hear it from normal tennis fans and not what news say.

Dodig played some time under Bosnian flag,Cilic and Ljubicic were born here,but they chose to play for Croatia,and there is no point in discussing these things.Every one of us makes these kind of decisions for himself and others have to respect that IMO.

And yes,we do have tennis association ,but we don't have the kazakhs money lol:devil:

you think you are above chearing for someone who is not a slam winner?no but it would give me incentive to follow that persons career maybe even root for him. doesnt necessarily have to win a slam just be consistent thats all
