Re: GS Champs

I got 26 but only because I didn't realize there was time limit and you only had to type last names.

Re: GS Champs

Jan Kodes won 3 grand slams and no one put his name in the quiz yet

I got 32

Re: GS Champs

I forgot Ferrer, Kafelnikov, Newcombe, and I couldn't spell Bruguera on time and some other ones. I didn't start until it was 30 seconds in and then I thought we had to do first names. I've never heard of Gomez or that South African guy though.

Re: GS Champs

I could not figure out how to spell "Edmondson"

I got 32. The time pressure makes the brain freeze!

Re: GS Champs

I got 30, but I must say that I spent way too much time trying to spell Ivanicevic, and I was sure I was right. It's Ivanisevic... Typed it the wrong way many many times in between other names.

Re: GS Champs

I got 36. I cannot believe that I forgot Becker and Vilas. I guess I spent too much time remembering the more obscure 1970's AO winners such as Teacher, Edmondson and Tanner.
