correct, but it was really more than that - Sampras thoroughly dominated Ivanisevic (H2H like 13-2), Ivanisevic dominated Rusedski (H2H 9-0), Rusedski dominated Krajicek (i think 6-1) and Krajicek dominated Sampras (6-2, before that weird match of USO '00 where he blew the 6-2 lead in the TB).

correct, but it was really more than that - Sampras thoroughly dominated Ivanisevic (H2H like 13-2), Ivanisevic dominated Rusedski (H2H 9-0), Rusedski dominated Krajicek (i think 6-1) and Krajicek dominated Sampras (6-2, before that weird match of USO '00 where he blew the 6-2 lead in the TB).

Ivanisevic Vs Rusedski 9-1

Let me try:

a) All the players made it to the quarterfinals of each slam or better apart from Rosset. Or alternately, Rosset was the only one out of that group never to reach a slam final.
b) I will go out on a limb for the second option as I am really not sure if this is right but I think out of all of them Becker was the only one never to win a single title on clay.

Bogota?

7.
Again not 100% sure about this but maybe Sampras as a retort to Greg opening his big mouth after their match in 2002 at the USO.

1. Nicole Vaidisova?

2. about the second q. she must be Kristina Brandi although I dunno if we could call her "puerto rican" she doesn't knows a single word in spanish, she is a yank who did born in Puerto Rico but never lived over there and just got the puertorican "citizenship"? to represent them at the olympic and panamerican games.

Ok, it's time for me to create some more questions. These will be a mix of current and past trivia questions.

# Which current ATP player on tour was born in Morocco but doesn't represent them?Clue this means he doesn't have MAR when he plays his respective event.
# Which current German players also speak Portuguese as one of their languages?
# Which player practiced on grass barefooted the week before the Aus Open, while playing a hardcourt tournament the week before? This was when the AO was on grass.
# What do Rafael Nadal and Alexander Volkov have in common besides they play tennis? Hint is not solely to do with their tennis games.
# When Guga won RG in 97 which great feat did he manage to achieve besides winning the title in this tournament?
# Has Marc Rosset ever won a GS doubles title? If he has, who was his partner and what title was it?
# Who did Jeff Tarango talk about when he said "Only girls get cramps" during one of his singles matches at Wimbledon?

Q. You said he was cramping. You can cramp, get treated, go back out and run.

JEFF TARANGO: Maybe the girls can; not the guys. Cramping is no excuse to get a trainer. :devil:

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

JEFF TARANGO: To say what? "Welcome to the locker room. Don't bend over for the soap." :devil:

Time to make some more questions.

1. Which player came back from a 0-6 1-6 1-4 15-40 deficit to win his 1st round match at the Aus Open? Clue it was played since 2000.

2. Which two players in a doubles match were involved in a dare by one of them to his partner to belt the ball out of court as far as he can. I want the team and the opponents as well?

3. How many years in a row did a Swedish player when an ATP title and when did the streak stop?

4. A who am I question. This one is not easy so be warned. "Playing Kent Carlsson is like watching a boring movie, the next time I play him I will go to the net from the start? A timeframe between say 1985-90.

5. Which current ATP player has a brother who is a professional footballer in Europe?

6. Who was leading 5-1 in the 5th set of a Davis Cup semi final singles match and had his matchpoint overruled by Jorge Dias, which led to a massive collapse that let his opponent win this match.

7. Who was the last team to beat Spain in Spain in Davis Cup? Name the team and the venue?
