Poland Is Currently The Most Athletically Dominant Country In The World

There are more Poles than any other nationality remaining at Wimbledon. No joke.

This year’s tournament at Wimbledon has been full of surprises. Rafa Nadal was knocked out in the first round merely two weeks after winning the French Open. The greatest grass player of all time, Roger Federer, was eliminated in the second round. And Serena Williams’ 34-match winning streak was unexpectedly snapped in the round of 16.

But the biggest shocker of the tournament isn’t the lackluster performance of the top seeds, and it isn’t even who remains in contention — it’s WHERE the remaining seeds are from.


That’s right. Poland currently has more players still playing during the final week at the All England Club than any other country in the world. Agnieszka Radwanska has advanced to the women’s semifinals, while Lukasz Kubot and Jerzy Janowicz face off in the men’s quarterfinals on Wednesday, July 3.
