The MW super-duper Andy Murray quiz. « on: February 18, 2010, 12:48 AM »

Yes, that's right, I've been planning this for a while.

Always said my specialist topic on Mastermind would be the career of Andy Murray.

Going to compile a quiz and see if anyone can get all of them right.

No doubt made easier by Google, and the ATP website, but alas, it's worth a shot.

Here goes :

1) Andy's first ATP win came in 2005, what was the name and nationality of his opponent?

2) Andy entered the top 10 in April 2007, but it was remembered for the fact he did it without lifting a racquet. Ivo Karlovic defeated which player to make this happen?

3) Andy won a Davis Cup rubber at the age of 17, a rare feat, who did he partner with to win the doubles rubber?

4) Name the first instance where Andy Murray fought back from two sets down to win a match?

5) Andy Murray recorded a 6-0 6-0 win in 2006, who was this against?

6) After that horrific wrist injury in 2007, at which tournament did Andy make his comeback at?

7) Name the first tournament at which Murray played with Brad Gilbert as his coach


Tried to make it reasonably difficult, try and get it without Googling. Very Happy

Trying to do it without looking anything up.

4) Davis Cup. It was against Israel, I think. Andy Ram?

6) Montreal

7) Washington?

1) I know this one! Lleyton Hewitt (Chewit, or whatever snack name Andy gave him) and he is Australian.

Sorry, that's incorrect. Wink

Andy Murray defeated Hewitt in 2006 for his San Jose title.

I mean first win, as in match win. This came in 2005. Smile

You're thinking of his first title, which was in 2006. He beat Hewitt in the San Jose final.

Andrew, that video clip... Think

Also what is happening with Smallville? Didn't Lana or whatever her name is die in a car bomb, but miraculously turn up in the following series or something?
