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.
