Announcing the Winners of My Roger Federer Quiz

A couple of months ago I ran a competition for a chance to win 5 RF caps by completing a Federer quiz to celebrate the 2nd Birthday of the blog.

It's dragged on for a while as I've run into problems sourcing the hats and sorting out worldwide shipping. I was let down by where I planned to get them from and since then it's been difficult to get a decent deal where I'm not paying silly amounts to ship them worldwide.

Anyway, this post reveals the answers to the quiz and the 5 winners who were drawn at random from the entrants.

I'll probably do another quiz or competition before the years out, depending on if theres anything worth celebrating ;), so stay tuned and thanks to everyone who took part!


Huge fan of Roger Federer. I watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or writing about tennis I play regularly myself and have a keen interest in tactics, equipment and technicalties of the sport.

  1. First!
    By the way, thanks Jonathan for making RF fans happy, I’m not one of the winners but i know some fans out there are very happy with it. I don’t mind, because i have the same hat πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for your efforts, Jonathan. I thought I did pretty well in the quiz considering I didn’t look anything up.

  3. Congrats to the winners and thanks, Jonathan, for the extra effort in connecting with RF fans. You have a fantastic blog that is clearly appreciated by so many!

  4. Hi Jonathan

    Lovely quiz – it was fun to take part and I did not look anything up – congratulations to the clever people that won.

  5. Feds is probably the worst player to have a quiz on: he has too many records to keep count of all of them πŸ˜›
    And I’m going with the general feeling, Jonathan, your blog is fantastic, your posts are great and keep up the great job!!

  6. Going off topic. I think Pospisil would have had a better chance at the finals against Nadal than Raonic. Raonic didn’t play his game, tried to go for too much.
    The Canadian commentators gave Nadal a trophy with plastic teething rings glued on so he could better bite it. I thought that was quite funny. I don’t think Nadal did!

    1. Trust me, after a semi final win like the one against Djokovic, nobody on the planet had a chance against Nadal.

      As for that for gift from those commentators, it could implied that Nadal needs extra protection as he could be biting a lot till the end of the season, no?

  7. I don’t think Pospisil would have won the match by any means. I just think his movement, defense, return of serve would have given him more games.
    I hope the “teething ring trophy” doesn’t mean that. I think they were making fun or maybe criticising his disrespect for trophies. I’ll see if I can find it online.

    1. Probably. Raonic is Nadal’s bunny. Hasn’t take a set off him in five matches I think.

      Agreed about the trophy biting. It’s an ugly thing to do, but then there are uglier things we have to put up with.

  8. Firstly A big Congrats to all the winners of the competition !!!! πŸ™‚

    Secondly Feds first match win againsts P Kohlshriber. I just hope Roger can gets more ‘W’s and somehow go deep in Cinnci. But it will be tough. The Fedal quarter final looming is defo what everyone is waiting for. But the way Nadal has been playing lately, Roger needs to be 100% and solid in every dept to have a chance of winning. If anyone can, Roger can !!!

    1. Hey man,

      Yeah I know, a good win but I wasn’t that impressed. I think he has made a mistake using the old racquet. This I believe has cost him a shot at going deep at the USO.


      1. Agreed. I haven’t watched the match but I’m pretty disappointed. It seems like after making the wholesale changes he needed to make to achieve long-term goals, he’s just lost patience and reverted to type. I’m not looking forward to the US Open now! He just can’t afford any ‘off’ matches!

  9. I’m gutted that he’s changed back. I think he should have written off this year and just stuck it out with the new one in preparation for a great 2014. Now he almost has to re-learn his old racquet a bit, as he hasn’t been using it for a while. Still, we trust the GOAT.
