yeah but you don't have that many players. I almost put Portugal on the list but not enough pros.

Italy is the best: more than 100 players and 1 only barely in the top50...

Brazil has a lot of players below the 200th spot playing challengers and futures.

I think it's Italy. Japan has only 39 pros, that's not a number big enough especially if to compare with 106 of Italy.

Mexico has got 29 players ranked with their highest ones being 178 and 391. At least Japan has 3 in the top 300. Source (http://statracket.net/?view=stats/country.php).

Vatican City is really struggling these days to find new tennis talent. The pope was a decent player back in the day, but he's almost as old as Federer now.

Italy wins hands down. No worthwhile players at all there. Franny Schiavone would probably beat the crap out of all those wimps.

France has plenty of mugs too but a few cool talented guys as well.

this comment has much more weight now. Italy's players are all mugs. No exceptions

They started slumping when events allowed players to use coloured garments, and Rafa's sleeveless outfits simply ruined their chances. Only Wimbledon would still accept somebody playing in medieval robes, but alas, its ruled by Church of England so it would never do.

Think there was also some issue with the umpire being capable of making the calls... I mean, if the Pope says something is out of bounds, it surely is, now isnīt it? Umpires and the public may (out of ignorance) see a ball as acceptable, but that only refers to the ball in its temporal or external appearance, while the 'real' ball (its trascendent 'essence' in Thomistic terms) may be clearly out in the light of both Tradition and the spirit of scripture...

In the end, it was felt that everybody was far better off if they sticked to badminton (though they call it goodminton).

If you can't beat them...join them? (Only joking, in fact we try hard to beat you because we are envious of Lisbon being the most beautiful city in Iberia)

Italy is the best: more than 100 players and 1 only barely in the top50...

This is something I really canīt understand. Italy excels in most sports, yet sucks in one of the most readily available to anyone. There are about 3 Italians to every 2 Spaniards, so we should get about 2/3 as many sport victories as you have. In most sports, the difference is usually larger in your favour. I canīt really think of many sports where Italy is not a main contender (perhaps field hockey?). Yet in tennis history you are next to nobodies. I simply canīt figure it out!

(I'm referring to male tennis players, donnas are doing fine... wonder how the men feel about that!).

I know Canada does not have 30+ ranked men, BUT, they also kinda suck in mens tennis for a large counrty.

I'm not sure but I don't think so. In a chart like this, Italy has necessarily to be the first country to massively suck (just as in every other argument).

Nah. They don't have many guns but they still have a heap of top 100 players or around the fringe of the top 100. In contrast, Italy really struggles, and so does Australia (gonna bet that we don't have a top 100 player by the end of the year).
