3.) Which TWO Aussies, in the most recent instance, both had a victory over a top 16 seed in a Grand Slam in the same calendar year, actually in successive slams!

Here we go!

1.) Apart from Alicia Molik, name the other TWO Aussies that have winning head to heads against Daniela Hantuchova? (Since 2000, so not junior results!)
I'm assuming it's from when Dani was playing challengers? I have no idea Or is this a trick question and you mean in doubles? lol, trust me to answer a question with a question

2.) Which Aussie player has been linked to Rainer Schuttler 2003 Aust Open Finalist?
Er no idea....Alicia Molik?

3.) Which TWO Aussies, in the most recent instance, both had a victory over a top 16 seed in a Grand Slam in the same calendar year, actually in successive slams!

The names I can come up with that beat top 16 seeds recently are : McQuillan (Martinez, US 97), Dokic*if she still counts* (Hingis, Wimby 99), Molik (Schett, US 01), Pratt (Farina, AO 03)...that's from memory, I know Im forgetting others but I cant think right now and I refuse to cheat

4.) Which two Aussies share the same career high in the top 100 since 1993?
Evie Dominikovic and Kerry-Anne Guse? (64).

5.) Match the players to their career high singles rank

Barclay - 159
Grahame - 157
McShea - 139
Stewart - 135
Watson -131
Wheeler - 153

6.) Which CURRENT Aussie player (Not Dokic!) has the most wins over top 10 players??
Alicia Molik?

7.) Which Aussie player won 9 ITF Doubles titles in 2000? And its not McShea!

Er, no idea! Rachel McQuillan?

8.) Which Aussie Player (or Freak after reading this!) on their WTA Profile pronounces their huge admiration for the Dalai Lama and Gandhi! Yes this is true!!
Christina Wheeler! I remember reading her new WTA profile not too long ago

9.) Birmingham has been a tournament that Aussies have always done well at. Evie got her first WTA victory there, Mcshea/McQuillan won the doubles, Stubbs took a set of Graf, Musgrave won a main draw match there! Guse reached the Quarter Finals, Kristine reached the semi's as a Kunce and as a Radford, and Pratt reached the semis there last year BUT which Aussie player went a step better and reached the Singles final there in the 1990's?
Didn't Danielle Jones once beat Amy Frazier there? Anyway, was it Jenny Byrne? Don't know the year...was it 1990?

10.) Which Aussie player made their overseas Grand Slam debut as a lucky loser only to draw and lose to Jana Novotna?
No idea. I'll guess...Lisa McShea?

broncosven gets 2/10!

Try and give the full information for questions 1, 3, 4, 6 and 10, and not just the name of the player as Im not giving full marks for that.

TS I'm upgrading ur score to 3.917/10 because you had a couple of questions partially right!
