Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

I mean Acapulco.

I dont know if the clay was so slow when it was played in Mexico City.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

When Muster played in Mexico, the tournament was in Mexico City.

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

Here is another question, who is the odd one out and why?

Stefan Edberg, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Marc Rosset, Mats Wilander and Boris Becker

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".

No you didn't for the very simple reason, it was singles and not doubles.

You are right, it could have been the first one, but Becker is the right answer actually, as all of the other players have won titles on all surfaces except Boris who never won clay.

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

Who is the only male player from the past 25 years who has reached
at least the singles semifinals of all four Grand Slam events, but never won a singles Grand Slam title.

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

Right up my alley Wyve, one of my favourites of all time who had the misfortune of running into the nasty Ivan Lendl on three of those occasions.

Would it to be the great Slovak fisherman otherwise known as Miloslav Mecir

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

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

correct - agreed about Lendl, probably would have broken through if it wasn't for him

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

Yes, that Lendl was a nasty man and was always brutal when he played Mecir. He even said so himself, it was the way I had to play him. Though I do remember his one great victory over him, in Miami, it was a fantastic game by the Cat.

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

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

On 9th September 1991 the number 1 ranking in both the men's and women's ranking changed with Edberg and Seles going to number 1. It was the first time both number 1's changed on the same day. It has happened twice since. What dates and what players?

Re: Useless Tennis Trivia

What was unique about the 1987 Basel final between Yannick Noah and Ronald Agenor?

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".
