The game has always been global, since it came from England to the U.S. Of course, most of the top players were from the U.S., England, France, and Australia - the only 4 countries that had won Davis Cup for most of it's history. There have always been top players from Germany, Czechoslovakia, Spain, India, and other places, though. Other than possibly becoming a big thing in China, it really isn't getting more global, except that more of the very top players are from different countries - especially former Soviet dominated countries - instead of the U.S. (and, prior to that, the UK).
