TP, Spain has 4, with 12 Slams.

Manolo Santana won Wimbledon, and Juan Carlos Ferrero and Carlos Moya won a French Open each.

Or wait - you're counting countries that have champions that have won more than six apiece.
My bad.

(I blame AO sleep dep.)

Nice list.

Seems like Germany ,UK , and Switzerland have underperformed here:)

It was an awful long time ago for us in the UK, *covers my face*. The ladies, Ann Jones, Sue Barker and Ginny Wade fared much better in the Slam department.

banti

Sue Barker's won a slam!?:)

French Open 1976.

If we calculate the ratio GS/player then we get:

Country -----------> ratio (GS/player)

Switzerland -----------> 16
Spain --------------------> 9
Australia ----------------> 8.8
USA ----------------------> 8.3
Sweden ------------------> 8
UK ------------------------> 7
France -------------------> 7
Germany ----------------> 6
New Zealand -----------> 6

RafaFan expressed my sentiment with stats but stats cheat. i was going to say Australia and Switzerland seem the powerhouses. With one in Spain, it skews percentages.

Sorry. Meant Sweden
