3. No, it was for the 1st time when a player got to main draw of challenger and went to final in that tournament. Olivetti had 7 challenger main draws before Segovia.

4. I guess you thought that he always lost after qualifying this year, but he meant that he lost only in those 4 tournaments that were in a row (Doha-AO-Montpellier-Marseille).

Just if anyone is curious, the other guy I was thinking of for the 8 grass court wins questions was Bob Bryan, he has 8 singles grass court win, and made the semis of Newport once. Problem was he had 13 other wins. Realized after that 7 of Ward's wins came in Davis Cup

2. This player has won the first ATP-level match of his career on a home Grand Slam tournament when he was in the end of TOP-600.

what range do you consider the end of the top 600? 580-600? 560-600? 550-600?

5. This tennis player, a former №13, has finished in the Top-100 for the 12th consecutive year.

This year is his 12th straight or could his 12th been previous years and he be outside the top 100 now?

Edit: nevermind, I found the answer

Hidalgo, I think you don't answer Nixer's question. This is 1-day round?

Re: TT Quiz Special (Week 47) - Day 4 - SF Post 127 - Deadline Wednesday 6pm CET

Guys, if u interested in such tennis quizzes, I can give an idea (realized by me in the russian tennis forum) for team's ONLINE battles on basis of Russian TV show "BRAIN-ring". There are 8 teams (maybe national teams) for 3-4 players. so you will have 4 Quaterfinals, SFs and Final. Every match has two sets (till 6 points) and super-tie if it need (1 question). Both Teams are online when match starts. Manager gives question. Teams have 3 (5) minutes maximum for each question. Team get 1 point after correct answer of one of members. If answer incorrect, another team should give answer. if answer of second team is incorrect also, manager should ask another question (another game begins)but this question will cost 2 points. If one of teams answers this "2-points" question, next question will cost 1 point as usually. Every team have one attempt of answer of every question. First set finish after 6 points of one of teams. Team wins after 2 sets. So you need about 15-20 not difficult questions for every match, 100-120 questions for all tournament, several authors of questions and 2-3 managers of this event. So it is funny event for off-season

I don't think time-limited questions will work well in an international forum format.
