Question 6: Matthew Barton
4-4, reached 2nd round in Auckland 2016, Wimbledon 2016, Houston 2016, and Sydney 2017.
Yes! What a career to make only 4 ATP main draws and then never lose R1, but never really get onto the tour. Great answer. You can pick a topic. :)

Question 3: Tournament Finals

Many tournament finals are contested between players side by side in the rankings. A recent example is the ATP Cup final with World Number 1 Rafael Nadal playing World Number 2 Novak Djokovic. That is an example of the highest ranked side by side pair. Who are the lowest ranked side by side pair to play each other in an ATP tour final?

Question 7: Qualifiers, Wildcards, Lucky Losers and Protected Rankings (easier)

Which player has received the most wildcards in the 21st century?

Lleyton Hewitt gets a lot of wildcards. I dunno how many though
Lleyton Hewitt did have a lot fo wildcards. It seems like he had 38 which would have been second on my list of 21st century, but a lot of them were in the late 90's, 98 and 99 so they do not count here so he is a bit further down the list for the 21st century. I didn't realize he had so many in the 90after his win in Adelaide.

Question 7: James Blake
This is correct. Also, not the way I remember his career. He had 7 more wildcards compared to Ryan Harrison's 35 who had the second most. (source: Tennis Abstract)

Question 8: Challenger Finals (Easier)

Who is the highest ranked player to win a challenger event in the 21st century?
Kei Nishikori was probably in the 20s range when he won Dallas in his 2018 comeback season.

That said I do remember Paire at no.20 winning one too.

Another try for question 3:
Mexico City 2000: Chela (128) d. Puerta (129)
I won't look further until you tell me that's wrong ;-)

There are a few higher ranked guys. No one has gotten this question yet.

That is a great guess, but two players who while ranked higher.

I found a way to access my data on my phone! Nishikori was ranked #27 when he won Dallas, and you are also correct that Paire won at #20 but five players won while ranked higher.

For Q9, I’m assuming Spain or Germany since I believe they host the most tournaments outside of the Grand Slam Countries.
I’ll guess Germany.
