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 :angel:

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

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

Er, no idea! Rachel McQuillan?

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? :o 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?

...although someone like louloubelle will no doubt come in here and put us all to shame :p
:p No bloody chance of that, my memory has suffered greatly from too many tequila slammer nights.

Some clarification first....

For no. 6 - does this mean the player had to defeat the top 10 player when they were actually in the top 10, OR just beating a player who was once a top 10 player. Eg. Molik beat Brenda Schultz when she was coming back from injury - but no where near the top 10 at that stage.

And what does this mean????
QUOTE - 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.

Great post BTW :bounce:

OK - here goes - and as a disclaimer...I cheated on qns 5 and 6 (used info already posted)

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!)

this was easy - Barclay and McQuillan both beat her in qualifying in 2000 - i knew this from Barclays records

2.) Which Aussie player has been linked to Rainer Schuttler 2003 Aust Open Finalist?

Lleyton Hewitt!!

In all seriousness I'm going to guess 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!

Easy again - '97 was as good year as McQuillan and Guse provided some surprises

4.) Which two Aussies share the same career high in the top 100 since 1993?

i knew dominikovic was 64 but guse was higher i was sure...and stubbs was around there - so i'm going to say Dominikovic and Stubbs (before stubbs retired from singles play)

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

Barclay
Grahame
McShea
Stewart
Watson
Wheeler

a/ 131 - Watson
b/ 135 - Stewart
c/ 139 - McShea
d/ 153 - Wheeler
e/ 157 - Barclay
f/ 159 - Grahame

Some pretty poor efforts here from players who are/were capable of top 100!

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

Mc Quillan - i knew it was her, but i didn't realise it was against those mentioned

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

I'm saying Ellwood, but I'm sure she was only about 5 and the other players i'd consider would be McShea or Musgrave

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!! :eek: :rolleyes:

Thanks Christina Wheeler...

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?

I reckon this was back in the early 90s when Jenny Byrne was capable of winning matches!

10.) Which Aussie player made their overseas Grand Slam debut as a lucky loser only to draw and lose to Jana Novotna?

Again - my fave Aussie did this...poor thing....stoopid Novotna.... GO GO NICOLE PRATT!
