How does Serbia do it?

Is it too early to start thinking about Davis Cup? Because I'm wondering with Viktor Troicki kind of ballin' as of late, will Serbia blow through France--a thought I never would have entertained even a couple of years ago.

I guess I can come back to any Davis Cup thoughts as we get closer to the finale, but for now, I want to give a shout-out to Troicki for picking up his first career title at the Kremlin Cup this past weekend. Great result for him, and well-deserved because he wasn't playing a slouch in Marcos Baghdatis.

I know I shouldn't be surprised such a tiny nation produces tournament-winning players anymore, but I can't help it. There are so many larger countries out there with bigger tennis federations that aren't producing half the champs Serbia is, a list Troicki can now add his name to.
