Casper Ruud joins this list with his title in Buenos Aires, a curious thing about this list is Bordeaux and 4 additions in six years [1980, 1981, 1983, 1985].

Surely Canada should be Rusedski, not Raonic? Rusedski won his 1st title in 1993 at Newport when he still represented Canada.
Thanks, in my database I have one nation for each player and when filter the titles, I have a couple of problems like Poliakov (UKR) and Pimek (BEL) but completely forgot about Rusedski, I should check Dowdeswell too he represented like 4 nations.

Really interesting list, thanks for sharing. Some countries like New Zealand, Denmark, Mexico, and Egypt won their first titles much earlier than you would expect given the players they have produced over the last 20 or so years.

Quite the fail that China with a population of 1.386 billion has never produced a decent male tennis player let alone won an ATP title.

Tennis was unheard of until fairly recently in China. If you wanted to play a racket sport growing up in China your options were table tennis or badminton. Only within the last ten years have I seen tennis courts being built in Chinese cities.

Thanks a lot for that list!

Just one small correction from my side: Gilles Muller's first title was Sydney 2017
Thanks for the correction, also changed the tournament for Raul Ramirez, I put Kitzbuhel but that was an unfinished tournament, didn't filter those in my database :p

Really interesting list, thanks for sharing. Some countries like New Zealand, Denmark, Mexico, and Egypt won their first titles much earlier than you would expect given the players they have produced over the last 20 or so years.
Also New Zealand has the fisrt GOAT in my point of view in Anthony Wilding that was back in the starts of 1910's, he won the three big majors in 1913, but did the military service and he died in WWI. In the case of Egypt Drobny was a 3 grand slam champion in 50's, he is the only african representant to win Wimbledon, and Mexico had Rafael Osuna in early 60's he won one US Championship.

Quite the fail that China with a population of 1.386 billion has never produced a decent male tennis player let alone won an ATP title.
At least now they have players in top 200 before this era his highest ranked player was Bing Pan (176 in 1995). In the least years there are Zhizhen Zhang, Di Wu, Ze Zhang, Ti Chen, Zhe Li, Yan Bai. All of them with a highest rank in top 200 and all of them in the last 6 years. It's a matter of time for them
