Backpack Giveaway – and the winners are…
…*drum roll* L and nolanola! L’s entry was picked first and she chose the Babolat backpack; nolanola will be receiving the US pack and hat. Congrats!
Here are the answers for the quiz:
When was Babolat founded?
Who (male) has played in the most US Open singles finals?
The answer I was going for was Bill Tilden with 10 finals, 1918-25, ’27, ’29 (source). But Mary pointed out that when Bill won, it wasn’t called the US Open. So, I also took Sampras and Lendl since they were tied at 8 for the Open Era. (One person said McEnroe with 5 singles and 5 doubles, but got another question wrong or I would have considered the entry to be valid due to the lack of the word “singles” in the question. After that entry, I changed the question to include the word “singles”.)
What current male player has the best winning percentage in Grand Slams?
Rafael Nadal – shame on those who got this wrong! ;) (source)
On what date did this site debut?
Jan 1, 2009 (source – earliest post…with video removed due to copyright claim)
Thanks to everyone who participated!
