Well, because of the rain delay, we have a bit of a problem.  The second round hasn't finished yet, and the 3rd round is set to start.
Also, the schedule wasn't up early enough for me last night and I didn't wake up soon enough to make the questions in time to be fair to our American game players.

It looks like they've set the 2nd round matches to start first.  But there is also an 80%  chance of rain today - with good chances of rain around mid-day, but maybe a window to play in mid-afternoon.

I'm going to play it by ear - or eye if you prefer :).   We might skip the 3rd round if they start playing the 3rd rounds today. 

Anyway, please stay tune, I'll post the 2nd round results, and put up a new set of questions for either the 3rd round or 4th, or think of something creative :)   I welcome any suggestions... ;)  Thanks!

Ok.  Good news. I think I've found a solution.  None of the top half of the men's draw for the 3rd round are scheduled to play their 3rd round match today.  Some of them have to finish their second round matches today.  So I will make questions for the top half of the draw only once they have completed their 2nd rounds.  And who knows, maybe the bottom half 3rd round matches may not get played today.  We shall see.

Preliminary 2nd round results have been updated in the original post.  Question 1 and the bonus question are still pending.

Thanks general.  But we need more players to make it more interesting.

We have many very knowledgeable people at this forum.   :not worthy:

It's high time they get on the playing field and stop sitting on the sidelines.  :)>>>>

Talk is cheap.  This is where you back it up. And it's fun too! :first-place: :second-place: :third-place:

No worries ash. You'll get the hang of it. At least you are playing and trying.
So look at it this way, you are still far ahead of more than 90% of the members that frequent this forum.  :whistle: ..-)

Thanks for participating!   :worthy:

Litotes still leads, and Clay Death remains in 2nd.
Litotes answered another bonus question exactly!  Fortune favors him at the moment... ;)

Monday's 4th round questions will be posted tomorrow.

affirmative general.



this is a fun game for all. glad you invented a way for all of us to have a little extra fun at tennis4you.



alex is really too damn lazy to do anything so you can forget about him.

give him a loaf of bread and a can of soup and he is happy for a week. just don't ask him to do anything.


 :)) :)) :rofl_2: :rofl_2:


others are busy but hopefully they can get involved.



general swish is also all talk and no action.

 :)) :)) :rofl_2: :rofl_2:
he should have been the fist one to jump on this game.

1. B
2. does the answer has to be for both persons or seperately ?
i am guessing Janowicz will make it to QF & Kubot will not make it.  My Answer will depend on your decision MC.
3. C=2
4. E
5. C
6. A
7. Shortest : Fernando Verdasco vs Kenny De Schepper
Longest : David Ferrer vs Ivan Dodig

So that would be no, ash. :)  Both Kubot and Janowicz have to make it to the QF for the answer to be Yes.
