Your question is it Yzaga. I know Yzaga and Sampras had some battles and Yzaga took him out at one US Open.

Krickstein is the youngest to win a title, but not a match on tour.

The era was between the late 80s and mid 90s of this player.

Corey Feldman

Yzaga is right, sampras beat him at the 1989 and 1995 US Opens, having lost to him in 5 setters in both the previous years

Two words: Jeff Tarango.

Coria also had another bust-up in Buenos Aires in 2001 I believe, when he accused Horacio de la Pena, coach of Acasuso at the time, of coaching Chucho from the sidelines. The two of them had a virtual fist-fight in the lockerroom afterwards, other players had to separate them and I think Calleri's foot was trodden on and injured.

2. How many times did Björn Borg go undefeated during the clay season? Name the years if there are any that he managed this?

He did it twice, the first time was in 1974 and the other time was 1978. Still the best ever claycourt player.

3. Who is the youngest player ever to win a match on the ATP main tour? Who did he beat and where was it?

The answer to this question is the man Franco Davin, the man who coaches Gaston Gaudio.

Ok, OK...they were both at a TMS (the former Lipton event, which is now the Nasdaq Open, and Monte Carlo). If I remember correctly, Wilander was defending champ at both of these events (I may be wrong, but hey....).

- Which 2 World Group Davis Cup captains, played their only matches against each other in the same year and apart from the result what was unique about these matches?

Mancini and Wilander as Sigmagirl correctly said , and about the second part of the question , surely i will say a strange answer..

The 3 matches were played in consecutive days of the week , that is Key Biscaine match was on saturday ( 25th of March ) , Monte Carlo on sunday ( 30th of April ) and Paris on Monday ( 30th of Octuber ) .

And if thats answer isn't correct i would say a sencod that surely will be wrong but i'm gonna try it : The answer would be that 3 matches were played on the 30th day of a month . that is Paris on 30th of October, Monte Carlo on 30th of April and Key Biscaine on 30th of March ( although in Key biscaine i guess the mach was played before 30th )

I remember a black cat passed between Muster and Mantilla in Rome but I think it was in 1998 not 1996.

My guess would be Muster and Rios, but I am probably wrong.

That match where Muster stole Mantilla's banana at the change of ends.

No, it wasn't those two. One more clue one is well known the other is famous for a rare feat.

It happens that I've just found out that actually there was no third answer to this question. The thing is that there was this final that has never been played, to which a South American player qualified, in a tournament played on grass in the 70's, so therefore it cannot be considered an official title, although some sources differ.

Anyway, it was Mr. Jaime Fillol from Chile at Nottingham '77. He ended up never playing the final against Tim Gullikson, so Frana and Pereira are the only possible answers to this question.

Yeah, it's strange though. The ATP site considers him as a winner in the draws section, but doesn't recognize it as part of his titles list in the profile section. And then there is the site www.fillol.com, which is about the business he runs with his relatives, and there's a biography of his there and it says that he was a finalist in this tournament. The only thing that all sources agree on is that the final has never been played.
