Default Why so many great West German tennis players

One thing I find surprising looking back in tennis is how many of the great German players were West, not East German. Becker, Stich, Graf, and Kohde Kilsch, the 4 best German players to emerge in the Open Era are all West German. That was not the norm in sport, by a huge margin more great athlete cames from East Germany than West Germany, in large part to a heavily invested doping program of the 70s and 80s.
