35. Which of these players has won every other match this year in Australia, apart from a loss to Serena Williams?
c) Kim Clijsters

(Molik lost to Serena in the Hopman Cup, won Hobart and retired injured in her loss to Tulyaganova at the Oz Open, however it is still counted as a loss, Shaughnessy pulled out of her QF in the Gold Coast vs Schynder, but still counted as a loss, won Canberra, then lost to Serena, Clijsters is correct cos her losses were not to injury, but to Serena Williams (in Perth and Melbourne)

36. Which two qualifiers made the third round of the main draw?
c) Klara Koukalova and Barbara Schwartz

THANX FOR EVERYONE FOR APPRECIATING MY TIME AND BY ANSWERING,

I might do more in the next grand slams.

I'm obviously better at knowing things that HAVE happened than predicting things that WILL happen

Thanks for doing this SpikeyAidanm

Actually #18 could be B or C. B would be the answer for the greatest games Kim had led.

But I knew what you meant.



I wouldn't have been able to answer over half the questions btw.
