Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

It's almost expected that one of GWH's answers would be Wilander, seeing as he is one of his top fave players (if I remember correctly, he put him at #1 in his faves list).

Congratulations Leo, you were correct. Wyver he lost one of them on the first day, but the other guy was so tired out from his performance that he offered token resistance in the deciding singles rubber.

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: Useless Tennis Trivia

Youngest player ever to win an ATP title? What was his age and what was the title?

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

I like this piece of tennis trivia.

"Nadal became the first teen-ager to beat a top-ranked man since an 18-year-old Andy Roddick upset Gustavo Kuerten in August 2001 at Montreal."

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

Which five players won their first respective titles at a Grand Slam since 1970, which year and Slam was it?

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".

Was it Aaron Krickstein at Tel Aviv in 1983? (16years, 2 months old)

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

Correct Mister Q you have guessed one of them. See if you can get the other one.

Do you know the other question about the youngest player ever to win an ATP title? Also how old was he, and which tournament?

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: Useless Tennis Trivia

Mark Edmondston, 1975 Australian Open.

And I guessed Krickstein in my previous post, maybe you didn't see it... is that the right answer?

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

Mr Krickstein is correct, and how about the age he was and the tournament he won?

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: Useless Tennis Trivia

Yes, Mark Edmondson was correct as well, but there is one more and I have adjusted the question, my mistake.

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".
