We'd sort of prefer that you didn't make a thread for every little thought that you have, but it's okay.
We've all already done some speculation, but it's not really worth speculating about the future at the moment. We don't even know what the Top 10 will end up looking like.
What the hell is the point of the dicussion if no one offers anything to discuss? And what do you mean "We?" Unless there's a group of people behind you that shares your thoughts, then speak for yourself, FrostyMouse.
I don't think is bad to start threads, why always have the same threads while we can create new ones to discuss? Personally, it's more interesting that way.
There's no problem with creating new threads as long as they don't cover the same thing as an already existing one... that being said, the topic of this particular thread is possible international competition, so get back on track.
To make this somewhat on topic, I expect to see Germany and the USA, simply because of Tezuka's and Ryoma's connections.
Germany and USA are teams that will appear, South Korea altough is a nation with a very poor tennis. Other teams that could appear are Spain, Italy, Sweden or Great Britain, I wonder which teams will Konomi introduce. I would like to see Echizen beating the No.1 of some nations, he will defeat the No.1 of the semi-finals team and finals team, most likely Usa and Germany.
"An island nation of tennis amateurs you say? Right?" I just thought that quote from Renji was appropriate now XD
To be honest, with Great Britain, Scotland schools tend to win the Nationals. So the Brit Team had better have both English and Scottish players to be realistic.
But if 5 any 5 nations should be seen then the ones I mentioned are definetes.

Im hoping Krauser is Austrian since Austrians have told me they have German names over there. I wouldnt be pleased if he was German since he kinda sucks, and Im hoping the German team be somewhat true to real life and be rather strong.
Krauser as the No.11-20 of his nation would be cool.
With some of the guys from the American arc (and I mean only SOME), and my fellow Londoners from the new movie as the Brit representatives haha.
Well Krauser could be some different nationalities. He could be from Germany, Austria, Switzerland or maybe even Belgium or the Netherlands. Krauser sounds in general like a name that would come from those areas. His first name, Liliadent, or how you wish to spell it is a little special though. I don't recall to have heard that name before, and can't really connect it to a specific area in Europe. It reminds me mostly of the girl name Lilian, lolol. I wonder of Konomi made up that first name himself. 'cause if you try searching for just Liliadent on google, you pretty much only find sites about Liliadent from PoT, without having to add in "Krauser". As soon as you start writing Liliadent, it'll suggest "Krauser" as well.

Hahaha no not at all. Most european learn english in school from a young age. We started with english in my school when I was 8, and added in german few years later. So he could be from a lot of places in Europe.
Where is Richard Sakata from? The guy who tends to only laugh. While his frist name is English, his surname is very Japanese. Yet they call him foreign. Surely he is half-japanese? Although there are places in Africa where you would find the surname Sakata.
Well maybe he is indeed half japanese.. Like having one japanese parent, and then one foreign. Mostly it would sound like a japanese father, due to his last name sounding japanese, and then maybe been given a foreign name due to his mother's nationality, wherever that is?
If he bothered to speak instead of just being a laughing hyena, then maybe we would be able to guess more.
I was hoping we could see him lose to someone in a full match so we could see how Zig Zagging helped him. Disappointed in the rushed story. Wish we could have got a few more Player Shuffles and Team Shuffles.
Considering Sakata is also found in Africa, it would be great if he was from another country, would be awesome to have him leave the camp, only to get wiped as part of another nation lol.
Im honestly just hoping Tezuka plays for Japan, Krauser leaves, they bring in the Movie guys, the America arc guys and the Nagoya Seitoku flops during this International arc. Its so true that now Konomi brought in Ryoga, not much is impossible lol.
Does anyone else feel we may get 17 yr olds based off of the Fab 4 players Federer, Nadal, Murray or Djokovic?
