On the other hand I don´t know if I would know Fes if I wouldn´t look under and saw "Morocco":p I saw 2 lines without scrolling:rolleyes:

EDIT: I just see there is a column for Wimbledon:hysteric: I just write London and it accepted, I have no idea I should write Wimbledon too:silly: Also forgot Stanford, Kuala Lumpur, Pattaya, Strasbourg, Monterrey, Quebec, Marbella, Stuttgart, Gstaad, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Rotterdam, Lyon, Delray Beach, Monte Carlo, Linz, Chennai, Casablanca, Osaka from current ATP/WTA calendar:silly:

This! :lol:

I had 116 at the end (should have been 117 thanks to Kolkata I didn't know how to write it in English either :ras:)
Though I have to admit that I picked a lot of cities right by just inserting the biggest towns of certain countries (Santiago, Milan, Rabat, Lyon or Helsinki :lol:)

i was surprised to get 110! But I can't believe I forgot Delray Beach, I spent a whole minute and still couldn't remember monte-carlo, and only last minute did I remember it was waikoloa, not honolulu! Also missed Halle, Stockholm, Las Vegas, Adelaide and Dusseldorf.

Who spent a whole lot of the time just typing in every German city you could think of!? I think there's been as many tournaments in Germany ias the US

I'm glad you all like my quiz so much. If any of you have any suggestions for future tennis quizzes for me to make, I'll most likely be happy to oblige. By the way, here's a link to my profile with other quizzes I've made (about 75% are tennis) http://www.sporcle.com/user/Togtdyalttai/contributed

I typed in those too but it was Oklahoma City instead. :o Couldn't spell Costa de Sauipe (or whatever it's called) and Amersfoort either and I couldn't remember a bunch of those Swiss/Austrian 'MM' clay-court events.

Interesting how it can´t accept Wimbledon and London as one, but when you write Washington it counts as Washington and College Park and you have 2 points...
