Name all of the men's grand slam finalists since 2000 in under 5 minutes. But obviously no cheating; no researching. Just knowledge:

And women too, if you're feeling up to it: http://www.sporcle.com/games/DavidB_202/womens-tennis-grand-slam-finalists-2000-2011

It sucks. Failed to accept Tomas Berdych and Rainer Schuttler.

Schuttler should be spelled Schuettler (this is also the correct spelling).

what do you mean it didn't accept "Tomas Berdych"? did u spell it correctly?

You should modify it to accept last names only. Sometimes, I can't be bothered to recall players' first names. Like if I just input Federer, it doesn't accept it, it has to be Roger Federer. Who other Federer could it be anyway?

Wow, I am a tard. I thought the quiz was about the winners :lol:

I clicked "give up" and saw "Fernando Gonzalez" and was like, "WTF :eek:"

I got 41 of 48 because I lost 1 minute trying to write Kafelnikov's first name properly.

12-28-2011, 12:12 PM
For the men, I got 46/48. I forgot Martin Verkerk and couldn't write Mark Philippoussis. For the women 47/48, I didn't know Conchita Martinez.

yes, yes i can.

lot of guesswork on the women's side, got them all in the end though ;)

Nathaliia
12-29-2011, 01:48 PM
i missed clement, schuettler and verkerk :lol:

women all correct with 2 minutes to go :D

samanosuke
12-29-2011, 02:55 PM
Perfect . Biggest problem was spelling correct kafelinkov's name , and philippoussis or so...

Johnny Groove
12-29-2011, 03:38 PM
Yeah this one was easy.

The WTA one I had no chance, though.

There was a link to naming all the nationalities of Wimbledon 2010 main draw, which was pretty good, and the RG champs from 68 to 2011, where I only missed Andres Gimeno.

HKz
12-29-2011, 03:47 PM
Pretty easy. Only failed at spelling Rainer Schuettler... For the women's, I could really care less.

Egreen
12-29-2011, 04:09 PM
Yep.

Not the women's though.

Matt-TennisFan24
12-29-2011, 10:33 PM
Got all of them in the women's quiz but missed 3 in the men's :tape:

·Couldn't remember Norman's name
·Would have never EVER remembered Martin Verkerk...
·Didn't remember Schuettler (nor could I have spelled his name right :rolleyes:)

I got only 44/48

But i am watching tennis only since 2006 so meh..

scoobs
12-29-2011, 11:01 PM
I did it, though I nearly missed Corretja

Mae
12-29-2011, 11:14 PM
I'm proud of you scoobs I couldn't even list all the winners for all that time let alone the Finalists!

Mjau!
12-29-2011, 11:26 PM
I got 41/48, but accidentally cheated a little because I clicked give up when I couldn't figure out how the thing worked and all the names showed up... I couldn't spell Philippousis or remember Bagdhatis's first name.

Now I will do the women.

Mjau!
12-29-2011, 11:33 PM
I only miss Conchita Martinez

VolandriFan
12-29-2011, 11:38 PM
43/48

I'm ashamed to admit who I missed.

Mountaindewslave
12-30-2011, 12:07 AM
40/48 ... saddd. time passes and I suppose memory does too. It's the Roland Garros finalists that I kept fluking on, and the oddball finalists of 2003

mark73
12-30-2011, 12:41 AM
I got them all except federer and nadal.

Jimnik
12-30-2011, 03:53 AM

Mystique
12-30-2011, 04:49 AM
Missed Magnus Norman :(

Tomasinho
12-30-2011, 08:18 AM
Wow, both 47, i´m king.

Corey Feldman
12-30-2011, 01:31 PM
liked it, completed it with 2.15 left

2003 was the tricky year remembering Verkerk, Schuettler and Philippoussis all reached finals

Helevorn
12-31-2011, 10:10 AM
For the women 47/48, I didn't know Conchita Martinez.

Same here, she won Wimbledon in 1994 and was still FO finalist in 2000, lol.

GSMnadal
12-31-2011, 10:23 AM
45/48

Forgot Norman, Corretja, Schuettler (how can you not forget Schuettler making a slam final :facepalm:)

Spent at least 4 out of the 5 minutes trying to spell Kafelnikov and Philippoussis
