2. Name the last three players to have won an ATP title as a wildcard.

Was Gilles Simon winning in Marseille a WC?

Action Jackson

This one is still unanswered and Voo can't answer it, but I will give some more clues.

1. This match happened in the 1990s and both players are retired. One is South American and the other European and they played a service game that lasted 20 minutes. Name the players, the event and the venue?

One of these players made an RG final, this should make it a bit easier.

Santoro maintains an Excel datasheet with the strengths and weaknesses of various players. It worked for Safin, but not Corretja.

You are right I remember Muster saying that he and rugged Ronnie planned some strategies.

There were no hardcourt Slams at the time, so the answer is no. US Open was played on grass, just like Wimbledon and the AO, when he was playing.

who is the only man to retire from tennis for 20 years and then returned to compete and win again.

Hint: for those 20 years, he says he never picked up a racquet and was heavily involved in farming.
