yes i know i am really just stealing from GWH's most talented youngsters. but this is all ages.

i have just picked a few countries and given two players from each. some countries obviously have much more depth than others, but i have limited it to two from each to make it more interesting and to give the underdog nations a chance. you may disagree with the players i picked and disagree with the countries. anyway...

switzerland: federer and warwrinka
spain: nadal and verdasco
usa: blake and agassi
russia: andreev and safin
argentina: nalbandian and gaudio
france: gasquet and grosjean
germany: kiefer and haas
belgium: malisse and ollie rochus
britain: henman and murray

Re: most talented nation of players

If we're going on sheer talent I'd have Coria ahead of Gaudio, probably Youzhny ahead of Andreev and Santoro ahead of one of the Frenchies.......

From your chosen players you'd have to go Espanol

Coria and Gaudio are both very talented in different ways.

As for a country well from this it'd be either Spain, France or Argentina.

To be honest I don't think Rafa's one of the most talented players around. He just makes the most of his talent. In hindsight, I think my Spain vote might've been a bit hasty, its just because I think Verdasco is probably the most talented guy out there.

You've got to take into consideration how small/large those countries (population) are just to compare the potential talent pool.

Switzerland: almost 7,5 million citizens
Spain: 40 million
USA: almost 296 million
Russia: almost 144 million
Argentina: almost 40 million
France: 60,6 million
Germany: 82 million
Belgium:10 million
UK: 60 million

I'd be inclined to disagree, I'd go as far as to suggest he's more talented than any player around nowadays :cool:

Too bad Acasuso has his own thread :)

The Belgians are ones that I could vote for as well, it's a very good question and takes my mind of the Ashes.

Are you talking about just men's tennis?
This is not a WTA board.

It's a bit weird to crown a nation the "most talented nation of players" just based on the male players they have, don't you think?

Mr federer express doesn't talk about womens tennis, this is not a WTA board and I know exactly where he was coming from with this question.

Example Brazil has arguably the most talented footballers in the world, this doesn't include the female players, the principle is the same here.
