Which was THE country in 2004 on the ATP Tour?

Hello, I want to know your opinion! Which country was the dominating country in 2004?

On the WTA tour Russia was the dominating country with four Grand Slam Titles and the World Champs title! ;)

But on the ATP tour?

Was it Switzerland with three GS titles of Roger Federer?

Was it Argentinia with three players (Gaudio, Coria, Nalbandian) in Roland Garros semis and the first Argentinian GS winner since Guillermo Villas with Gaston Gaudio?

Was it Chile with two gold medals (of Nicolas Massu)?

Was it the USA with one silver medal and the Daviscup final and the serve world record of Andy Roddick?

Or another country?

Please vote now!!

Roger was the only Swiss player to do well this season, while the Argentinians had several good players on top of their games, my vote goes to them.

I voted Argentina too, - as well as Roland Garros they had finalists in 5 Masters events (Nalbandian in Rome and Madrid and Coria in Monte Carlo, Hamburg and Miami), and they also have Canas as alternate in the Masters' Cup this year.

For me this needs to take into consideration more than just 1 player, and so Argentina stood out the most for me this year

True, but Roger alone has achieved this year more than they will all ever achieve in their careers combined.

Yeah the Argentines, could have been even better as well had their best 2 players not been injured for half the season.

I agree with you. I hope they can shrug off all the injuries in 2005.

Germany:
big Kiefer revival (top 20 again after many bad years, thanks Hogstedt! :bowdown: )
BIIIIIGGG Haas comeback (non-ranked after being out for over 460 days, now top 20 and best ranked German)
Mayer came OUT OF NOTHING to the tour in 2004! (ranked #35, good results on clay and grass for him!)


Three names you can't ignore... :yeah: ... the only country who can challenge this is Argentina...

I don't know if there was a best country. Argentina dominated the French Open but not the season as a whole.

i have to admit that Spain gives his Nº1 position to Argentina this year, we'll fight for being in the top again in 2005!!!!

Good point. I forgot about Germany's good year. Argentina certainly had the most stand-out year but Germany had an excellent quiet year. It's easy to overlook the fact that Tommy Haas beat Andy Roddick or that Kiefer jumped a bazillion points and Mayer beat a lot of good players.

Random question: Where is Thomas Berdych from?

ah, don't ignore Czech, though ppl here always ignore them....

Jiri Novak got 2 single titles, and 1 double winner in Stuttgart
Bohdan Ulihrach did an awesome job in Tokyo Open, and reach QF in Basel
Radek Stepanek, outstanding Paris, and 3 double titles
Pavel Vizner 3 double titles in Milan, Shanghai and Tokyo

They did a really good job this year :yeah: Go~~ Czech
