I am a bit bored, insomnia and no Roddick matches to put me to sleep, so here are some trivia questions. Try too hard not to cheat, lol.

If you get them correct, that's great. Your prize I will be nice for 3 minutes.

Here are the questions: Timeframe is from 1980- the present

1. Who was the last serve/volleyer to win the French Open? In what year and who did they defeat in the final?

2. Which two players have been the only ones to take part in two Davis Cup singles matches that lasted longer than 6 hours? Besides the length of the matches, there was something else unique about one of the player's particular matches?

3. Which player has come back twice from nine match points down to win a match ? Who were the players that lost those matches and where were they played.

4. Who was the last lucky loser to win an ATP tournament, and what tournament?

1. Yannick Noah, 1983, bt Mats Wilander
2. John McEnroe (matches v Wilander, and Boris Becker)

I have had to adjust question 2 as I just found out there were two players who have played two 6hr + singles matches, and there was something in common about the other guys matches.

Jtipson, McEnroe was correct, but do you know the other one and what was it him that was the common factor?

Great attempt at humour tangerine, that was outstanding.

The answer to #4 is the man who was the Jerry Seinfeld lookalike on the tour. The man who took out Agassi, Canas, Massu, Hewitt and Norman to win 2001 Scottsdale.

It was Francisco Clavet when he won Hilversum in 1990 as a lucky loser.

Normally I would say you cheated and maybe you did to cover your tracks though there was only one thing wrong with that theory.

Yes, Albert Portas was the other victim, but Felix went on to win that title beating Nalbandian in the final and not the other way around. This incidentally was the first tournament I saw Nalbandian actually play on TV, for the first time.

2. Which two players have been the only ones to take part in two Davis Cup singles matches that lasted longer than 6 hours?



Safin and Nalbandian had a cracker of a match in DC, 2002. Lasting well over 6 hours. So I'm assuming it was one of them.

WyveN
03-28-2004, 03:05 AM
the other 6 hour DC Mac match was in the early 80s against Wilander. Can't remmember the year - so the answer would be Wilander or Becker I would think

Yes, you have the participants for one, but there was someone else besides Mac that played in two of them.

Once you guess that one correctly, then find out the common theme of both of these matches.

Actually they were not all snorefests.

It's almost expected that one of GWH's answers would be Wilander, seeing as he is one of his top fave players (if I remember correctly, he put him at #1 in his faves list).

Action Jackson

Congratulations Leo, you were correct. Wyver he lost one of them on the first day, but the other guy was so tired out from his performance that he offered token resistance in the deciding singles rubber.

Two more questions
1. Which players in the Open era have won a TMS title as their first title, and which title?
2. This one is a who am I question. I won 3 titles and 2 of them were TMS titles, I played in the era of 1988-94, retired with injury and later became a coach of one of the current top players on the tour.

2 is Mancini, he won Rome (defeated Agassi) and Montecarlo (defeated Becker I think) in 1989.
He also lost the final of the lipton once to chang I think.

He was coach of Coria.

Muster won Mexico City 4 times in a row. The funny thing about him he said playing at altitude was a problem for him because the courts were quicker and he never won Gstaad and only Kitzbhuel once, yet Mexico City is higher than both of them and he won that 4 times, maybe the field was weaker there?

John McEnroe at Wimbledon the year he came through the qualifiers to reach the semis? He would have won 3 in qualies and 5 to get to semis which is one more match than Borg(?) won to win the title?

I'll bet its probably not Henman in 95 for hitting the ballgirl, or Jeff Tarango for his altercation with Bruno Rebeuh. Then my money is on one of the following:

John McEnroe- although from what I can remember he was only defaulted from the Oz Open in '90 and not from Wimbledon

Jimmy Conors

Ilie Nastase

As you would expect, Escude had a pretty soft draw to get to the 4th round at RG this year, although God knows how Youzhny, a man who had beaten Pavel in five sets in the previous round and whose first career title was won by defeating Canas on clay in a five-setter, managed to go down to him in the R32. He seemed to look fairly bemused at the result himself when shaking hands with Escude at the net.

Ok, another question for those are who are willing to take the challenge. This one is quite easy actually.

1. Who made the largest ranking jump in a year from outside the top 10 into the top 10?

2. What was his previous ranking and his year end ranking and what year was it?

was it canas this year?? or canas in 2000?
or goran in 2000 >>> 2001
no idea of the ranking numbers involved

ok my question: which player refused to shake hands with petr Korda after losing to the czech in the 1999 australian Open, and for what reason??

1. Who was the last serve/volleyer to win the French Open? In what year and who did they defeat in the final?

OMG, I knew the first one. Yannick Noah, 1983. But, that's an improper question. All players serve and volley at some point.

Which five players won their first respective titles at a Grand Slam since 1970, which year and Slam was it?

Guga - '97 Roland Garros...

Ummm...

Probably 4 shitty Aussie players who won Aussie Open when it sucked. Mark Edmondson, those scrubs.

1. Which players in the Open era have won a TMS title as their first title, and which title?

Carretero, '94 Hamburg... and I'll guess Woodruff, Toronto some year.

What was unique about the 1987 Basel final between Yannick Noah and Ronald Agenor?

They're both black. I'll guess the first all black final.

Which three players have won more singles matches than the actual champion in Grand Slam events? Which events where they and when?

'77 Wimbledon - McEnroe had to qualify, I think.

'97 Roland Garros - I think DeWulf maybe had to also.

I didn't cheat on any of these either. :)

Agassi, from 120 to 6, but I'm guessing that answer would be too easy. :p

Cañas just missed out by one place, if so he would have the record.
Goran finished # 12 that year.

Your answer was Galo Blanco the Spaniard. I think it was something to do with the fact that he didn't like Korda's conduct on court and not the fact that he was banned for nandrolone.

You are right, that's why I gave you a baby question like that, btw what year was it?

Ok, here is another level. Who was the player who had the previous record and what year was it?

'97 was the year he sucked, '98 he came back. Yay.

The record before that... ummm. Some crappy guesses... Kafelnikov in '94.

Considering Noah was predominately a serve/volleyer on all surfaces, therefore he was the last one to do it and win the French Open that's why the question wasn't improper.

Guga - '97 Roland Garros...

Ummm...

Probably 4 shitty Aussie players who won Aussie Open when it sucked. Mark Edmondson, those scrubs.

All the answers are there if you look through the pages and I don't think Gimeno, Wilander fit into that category.

Carretero, '94 Hamburg... and I'll guess Woodruff, Toronto some year.

Carretero was 96 and Woodruff had won a tournament before winning Toronro


They're both black. I'll guess the first all black final.
Yes


'77 Wimbledon - McEnroe had to qualify, I think.

Yes, it was!

GWH is wrong!

It kinda had to be Chris' 1st title. I remember all the announcers talking about that tournament was amazing for Woodruff after being injured for 100 years.
