Re: 2013 Offseason Tennis Quiz

Two players have sent their answers till this moment!.

Some comments for questions seems too difficult.
1. The surname of that tennis players = color (or maybe tint of color). For example, probably you know actor Franco Nero. Nero = Black on italian.
...
4. These two players live in the not Europian country, but they were born in the same city in Europe. Only match have been in the country where they live.
5. Player with same surename don't mean relative.

TT singles: highest ranking - 1, Titles (10)
TT doubles: highest ranking - 33, Titles (10)
SUICIDE: highest ranking - 1, Titles (7)
FITD: highest ranking - 7, Titles (2)

For number 1, does that name mean "popular vegetable" or does it actually mean a popular vegetable i.e carrot?

And for number 5, is this only for ATP tournaments or do Challengers/Futures count?
