5. This tennis player has the only title in the singles and in the doubles, he won titles in the same event both in the capital of his country.

wording of this is confusing. You mean he has only 1 title in singles, and 1 title in doubles? They are in the same event, that doesn't necessarly mean the same year?

8. This tennis player won his only ATP match in his career and his opponent was former Roland Garros champion.

Can you confirm that this was his only atp match? If he won it then it was either davis cup(which is not technically an ATP match) or he withdrew the next round which seems unlikely but possible. Can you confirm that this was in fact his only atp match?

And now I find Melzer who reached a CH Final when he was ranked 71, but he only had 2 tie-breaks

Re: TT Quiz Special (Week 47) - Day 3 questions - QF -Post 199 - Deadline Tuesday 6pm

I had someone with 9 TBs but ranked at 72 instead of 71 , too lazy to find if there's someone at 71 though.

well. it was ATP tourmament of course. he has 1 victory on ATP-level.

The way that question is worded sounds like he played only 1 atp match in his entire career, 1 win, 0 losses. That's what confused me because ythat's highly unlikely. But he's lost other matches ok, that makes more sense

Re: TT Quiz Special (Week 47) - Day 3 questions - QF -Post 199 - Deadline Tuesday 6pm

this former top 30 "unstable" player who beat a top 10 player at a slam this year yet lost to a 500+ player in davis cup, this seems odd, and I can't find it, I've checked all the top 10 losses at slams and none of them have lost in davis cup to a 500+, am I missing something here
