Re: Some '' interesting questions''

1. El Chino Rios
2. "Edo" Edmondson, 1976 AO winner
5. Aussie Pim, AO 05 R16 v Agassi
6. Not sure, but Chubby Chela's 16 in five sets against Moya at RG 03 comes close. Careless served 14 himself for an impressive combined tally of 30.
7. The Bull of the Pampas
8. El Chavalito/St. Pat
9. Rusty, I think

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

I think the right answer for the 7th question is Vilas (62 titles) not chang (40 titles)

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

There is plenty of this stuff on the Useless Trivia thread which I will bump up after this.

1. Marcelo Rios
2. Mark Edmondson he was ranked 200+ when he won the Aus Open
3. Grosjean
4. Chela, Moya, Rosset
5. PimPim Johansson
6. Don't care
7. Vilas
8. Rafter
9. Hewitt
10. Thomas Muster
11. Aaron Krickstein
12. Andre Agassi

All that in modern ere (after 1967).

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I didn't read the question correctly for the 1st time, I'll adjust my answer now.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

12. Didn't Ken Rosewall win AusO in the early 70s when he was 37 years old? I guess technically the Slams aren't ATP tournaments, but still?

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

Ken would be the man then Aphex.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

I read somewhere Michael Stich has the most double faults in a match. He hit something like 25 in a long Davis Cup match against Thomas Muster.

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

I know Whorenikova served 34 doubles in the AO and won the match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

According to the matchstats for Todero-Marray in R1 AO Qual this year, the Brit managed 24 DFs - quite remarkable if true considering he only had 10 service games to hit them in.

Re: Some '' interesting questions''

2002 Halle, Grass, Q
Germany Grass Q Kafelnikov 5 7 6 3 6 4

22 double faults for Kafel against Ulihrach.


1996 Grand Slam Cup, Carpet, S
Germany Carpet S Ivanisevic 6 7 2 6 6 3 6 2 6 4

I remember this amazing match with Kafel double faulting 35 times and Goran serving 45 aces, there was nothing in this one but aces and double faults ; however lot of fun with the two becoming mads after themselves from the very beginning of the match until the end.

Left-handedness is more than just a physical specialization. It's a state of mind.
Goran forever
Mein Führer! I can walk!
