Buitenzorg

You have to be careful as well, because some of the name I will use (just because the same first letter) and some of them I won't use :D

Buitenzorg, hasn't really made it clear on how we get the name of the 'mysterious player'.

we could at least be told where in the rankings this person is. like top 100 or 500-700 or top 250 or something. this could take forever there are like 1000 players to go through.

I agree we should get a hint, it could also be a retired tennis player.

Can you also confirm the ones we found?

Buitenzorg

Buitenzorg what did you mean with "You have to be careful as well, because some of the name I will use (just because the same first letter) and some of them I won't use"

what I meant was :

* Be careful! even though you find a lots of names, but some of them might not to be use :D it's mean just enough to form "The Mysterious Player"

example : you find A A A I I I N N R R M M N T E E K P H G S S H U D F
answer : Martina Hingis

as you can see, the names that I found were so many :D (ONLY example!)

No, it pretty much can't be someone from the top 100, if we have to use all the letters. Even if we just use the ones that have to be right and can't have happened just by chance (Karolina, Paola, etc, and not Ai, Eva, etc), it can't be someone in the top 100. Infact, just the letters K and P rule out almost everyone.

Unless Buitenzorg meant they weren't going to use all the letters (I assumed it meant that there were some duplicate letters that wouldn't be used, so not all the 'E's for example) :confused:

True, but there could be a 'U' we haven't found yet ;) Not sure many tennis players have names starting with a 'U' though

Thank God for that! Well done Spirit! :D

Oh, and btw bcoene, I expect the reason you couldn't find one starting with a 'C' is because the original didn't have it - CHANDA originally read CHANAT until Buitenzorg changed it without telling us! ;)
