How well do you know your Australian Open champions? And how many multiple-time singles winners you can name in two minutes?
Tennis players get a two-minute break between sets, so that is how long you’ve got to write down your answers. I’m talking men’s and women’s singles in the Open era – so 1969 onwards (as the Open Era started at the 1968 French Open) – and any wins before that do not count towards their total.
Warning: The quiz is for hardcore tennis fans and is most certainly NSFC (Not Safe For Casuals)! 😛
- Time yourself for 2 minutes and write down as many multiple-time Australian Open champions as you can remember at in that time.
- The surname of the player is enough for a correct answer. You will get one point for every correct answer. The maximum score is 24.
- No resources allowed. You can check yours answers at the end. NO CHEATING!
