Johanna Konta , British enough to represent Great Britain or is it more appropriate she represent Australia?

I mean if she believes she is more British , maybe it will help her visibility , she was born and raised in Australia until the age of 14 and probably feels a strong connection to both

    If she wins, and especially majors, it won't matter what nationality she claims. If she can't win, it won't matter either. She needs to concentrate on winning. That will take care of any visibility.

      I just think it’s interesting , she really has a claim to both but in tennis you have to pick one...

    Right now, she's playing as British. Many tennis players, and other competitors, play for a country that isn't their country of birth. Ruseski, born in Canada, played as British. If you like, Murray, born in Scotland, plays as British although only when he wins is he not 'Scottish' lol.

    How many athletes have changed who they compete for? Who cares.
