Yeah well, it's easier when you have 4 countries vs. the one.

And how many players in those 4 gigantic damp countries are in the top 150?

I'd like to know how many French players are in the top 150 actually.. it's probably pretty revealing.

Tsonga wont win a grand slam. So it gives you an answer about the France's elusive slam fo the next 3-4 years.

France are by a country mile the biggest underachieving country in male SINGLE (so DCs don't count) tennis considering all the resources and money they invest in tennis and how much popular this sport is in this country.

Great Britain have far less tennis players and less tennis courts than France and generally, tennis is not as important as in France so their GS hoodoo (until Murray ended it recently) must be put into some perpective comparing to France's GS hoodoo.

France without any GS male winner for 30 years, it's a bit like if Brazil couldn't manage to win a football WC for around 50 years.
