Hidalgo, I think I am right for question 1, but he was actually number 72 at that time. The player activity page incorrectly lists his rank as 71.

9. This tennis player has won the 8 matches on ATP tournaments, but on the grass only. He has reached SF on the home ATP tournament

I have to ask, does this mean he only won 8 career ATP singles matches and all of them were on grass. Or does it mean he's won 8 ATP singles match on grass? I can't find anyone to fit the former, but I have found 1 player to fit the latter, I don't see how it's possible to be the first one though that's he way it seems to me when I read it

Won their ATP title? Home tournament meaning country or hometown?

And for #1, 9 TBs in MD or MD+QD?

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

Number 9 doesn't make sense

There's nobody who has won only 8 atp matches, but they're all on grass, and said player reached the semis of a home tournament.

I find 1 player who has won 8 matches on grass, made the semis of a home tournament, but has won a couple other matches on other surfaces

pretty sure it's hometown

I see what you mean about the 8 grass, that answer was the first that popped into my head, but I had some misleading information which lead me to believe it doesn't work for him, but I think I"ve got that sorted now
