# This incident happened at the 1991 Aus Open. At the handshake the two players had a few unkind words over an incident where Player 2's doubles partner was constantly heckling Player 1 when he was about to serve.

Player 1: Guys like you should be in Iraq.
Player 2: At least we are man enough to be there.
Player 1: Lets meet after the match and sort this out properly.

that was scott davis against alex antonitsch ,
davis's doubles partner was heckling the Austrian.

2. Who made this comment at a press conference "Did you ever think about the girls that you get when you are 18 compared to 45?"

3. Which other player besides the Bruguera/Courier has a 2-5 record, but their only wins came in GS events?

4. Apart from being Argentinian players what do Guillermo Vilas, Guillermo Coria, Mariano Zabaleta and David Nalbandian have in common?

5. Which player never ranked in the top 50 has a 5-1 record against 2 RG Champs? It's incomplete as the player has been mentioned, but only one of the victims and not the other.

6. How many qualifiers have won the TMS Hamburg? What else did they all have in common.

7. In a memorable Davis Cup semi final tie who was leading 2 sets to love in the final rubber with the tie at 2-2, but ended up losing that match and the opportunity for their country to make the Davis Cup final for the first time? Name the player and the result of the match?

Yes, I'm legally blind in my left eye and ruptured my achilles a few years ago. The blind eye is likely part of the reason why I mishit so many backhands. My forehand is decent though. :)

I know many girls can't serve 120+, but I can. :) I have a handful of times, my best serve in play at 123, and one long that was 126. Those don't really count because I was hitting serve after serve just going for speed. In match play, I'm 105-115 on flat serves.

Some girls can hit it harder normally. The biggest problem is that most girls today have awful serves.

I'm right-handed. I think only seeing out of my right eye affects my angle of impact. On my backhand, I tend to hit too early on it. I don't know if that even causes any issues. I just think it's possible.

Some girls can hit it harder normally. The biggest problem is that most girls today have awful serves.

I'm right-handed. I think only seeing out of my right eye affects my angle of impact. On my backhand, I tend to hit too early on it. I don't know if that even causes any issues. I just think it's possible.

I play with an older Iranian fellow who can only see out of one eye, but he is an incredible player. He says because of his eye problem he has to concentrate on the ball much more than the average person, but in the end this probably gives him an edge. He just doesn't like to play at night is all.

Two double-bagel matches (Agassi-Lee and Hewitt-Corretja) have been quoted but the question asks for three...

1981 US Open R32 Jose-Luis Clerc d. Mel Purcell 63 06 06 64 63

interestingly, the double-bageller LOST! :eek:

This question hasn't been answered yet.

Which other player besides the Bruguera/Courier has a 2-5 record, but their only wins came in GS events?

Using that account outside of your game is a bannable offense.

it's a tough question, can you give a hint, like which era it was in, or which grand slam(s) the wins came at, or what region the player was predominantly ranked in during his career?

I can't as it would give it away and the hint is the same as when the question came out.

The only thing I am going to say is that they were both successful players and that is what I originally said.

Here's an easy question:

*Who was the highest seed to ever win a Grand Slam (prior to the change to 32 seeds). Name the player, tournament, and seeding he had.

Action Jackson

Ok, the answer to besides which player besides Bruguera/ Courier who had a 2-5 record against their opponent, but their wins came in Slams is.

Carlos Moya who was 2-5 against Marcelo Rios, his wins came in the 1998 Roland Garros and the 2001 Australian Open.

Both have been # 1 in the world, so it could be said they were successful.

that's a great one, i don't go back that far so i didn't know about it. The third one i was thinking of was Siemerink d Merinov (Q), 60 60 76, RG128 '97. I believe Rusedski may have received a double-bagling at RG as well.

there are two others which involve the double-bageller losing, both from the same tournament! :eek: (i admit to looking these ones up, didn't know them off the top of my head):

that was a tough one, i had no idea Rios owned Moya outside of the GS's. The only match anybody remembers between those two was the RG '98 QF, when Rios had won four Super Nines (!!!) and like 36 of 38 matches in the first half of the year. Sadly, it all ended right there for him.

Moya won the Slam matches and not Rios. Rios was 5-2 vs Moya.

How about Stich at Wimby '91? He was seeded 12th (as a guess).
