Nationality?

I can't tell because that makes it too easy.

Eastern European is all you're getting  :)~

ok sports fans i have another idea that might work well here since we are all doing this to some extent already.
 
we might as well throw in a trivia question here and there to keep things moving and interesting.
 
i will fire off the first trivia question:
 
who is the tallest french open champion who also won the italian open?
 
1 hint is allowed:
 
hint: he was left handed.

who can guess this player?

i saw some highlights of his championship match at RG about 3 years back. he was a giant with a ferocious topspin forehand.
 
and guess what? it was a vicious lefty topspin forehand. he is listed at 6 foot 5.
 
but i am going to double check.
