Croatia for example played final last year, so I have to actually believe we are the second best nation in men's tennis, behind Argentina? Yeah, not...

That's the same in any tournament, reaching the final and losing it doesn't mean you're the 2nd best nation/player/team in the world.

Same goes for Argentina, really. So winning tournament also means nothing? :p

 

Anyway, introducing the short format might be the blessing in disguise, as more top players may opt to play.

It doesn't mean nothing, but winning it doesn't automatically mean you're the best tennis nation in the world, just like winning the football World Cup doesn't automatically mean you're the best football nation in the world, it just means you were the strongest at that tournament :p

sad for Belarus :( they fought really hard and without their best player Azarenka , but Congrats USA for returning title after all those years and of course if USA participated with their best players they'd have won many tournaments last years .
