Challenges

Asia is the most populous continent but tennis still remains a sport under development. Besides a couple of nations like India, China, Japan and Thailand who have produced some world class players, tennis does not have a very long and fruitful history. There are 289 futures and challengers in a year in Europe, while Asia in comparison only has 61 of these tournaments. Even South America has 81, where there are only ten states and where players from the other World rarely go due to remoteness.
