Post Tennis Trivia Challenge (game lasts for one week only)-Sign Up!

Sign up as a WTA player. You will recieve an e-mail with 30 questions pretaining to the 2001 WTA season. You must reply with as many answers as you could find within 24 hours of recieving the message. For each question you get right, you will recieve one point. The rest of the game is similar to FWTA. The first 10 ?s will determine how many points your player will have in the first set, the next 10 ?s will determine how many points your player will have in the second set, etc. Before I send out the questions, I will post a draw. The deadline for signing up is 8pm Monday EST.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

I'll play! Do we pick our player now? If we do, then I want Monica Seles!

oh darn, i was going to pick lindsay!

i pick martina hingis then <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Whew! I was worried I had missed this. Probably waiting for a few more folks to join. Judging by the response to my quiz thread, people aren't much in the mood for trivia at the moment.
