This quiz is in parts really hard so I am allowing some cheating but only from Question 8-11!

All questions relate to the period (1990-2003!) so you may have to think back with some of the questions.

Can I also say that DOKIC plays no part in this quiz! So you dont have to consider her for any of the questions!

The quiz is divided into a few sections and is out of a possible 60 marks!

EASY/HARD - No Cheating
IMPOSSIBLE (Questions 8-11) - Cheating is allowed!

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!
