FedBerg End of Season Quiz 2014

Hey guys, an unexpected post today but I received an email from Murli Pillai, who has put together a cool quiz called the ‘Fedberg Quiz' for the end of 2014.

There are 20 questions, 14 on Roger (7 tennis / 7 non tennis), 3 on Fedberg, and 3 on Stefan himself.

I have to say it's very tough and really well put together. I'm stuck on about 3 or 4 questions so interested to see how you guys perform. Try avoid Google if you can πŸ˜†

I've embedded the quiz below, and you can submit your answers via the form underneath it. I will post the answers in a few days!

Thanks for playing and good luck. And thanks to Murli for putting the quiz together!


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. Hello all πŸ™‚ …. wow I haven’t answered in writing but some of the questions are pretty hard. And I am not going to cheat by trying to find the answers via Google. I will wait for answers to posted by Jonathan in a few days.

    Anyway Thanks to Jonathan for all his post and the ones done by quest fellow readers !! πŸ™‚ cheers and big up to all.

  2. Hi Jonanthan loved having a go at the quiz – looking forward to seeing the answers to the ones I did not know – to you and all Fed Fans have a wonderful Christmas – All I want for Christmas is to see Fed win Wimbledon next year and get the Number One back lets hope that all Fed Fans have a wonderful 2015 watching Fed play sublime tennis

    1. Imagine life without Google. Probably be less brain dread zombies around though πŸ˜† I’m a cross generation, used Encarta back in the day, transitioned to Google.

    1. Think Conal think. Even I know that one πŸ˜€

      I worked a couple of them out too today, although I guess I have a slight advantage on one of them as the chemical one is also related to where I live πŸ™‚

      1. No idea on the chemical one, or the rhine falls one!

        Now I’ve forgot who I put for the 2nd question – might have been Edberg himself! Not right for sure!

      2. I’m interested about the Rhine/ Michael Caine answer. It’s a very interesting question. Makes you think. Can’t simply google it.

  3. Wow. If this was graded, I probably failed big time. I semi knew some of them, so where ever I looked to google for help, I marked it by mentioning (google) to indicate that I cheated. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha you would have been kicked off the Roger Federer Bachelor of Arts course and started a band πŸ˜€

      Interesting answer on the chemical one, they used to have a big base close to where I live. But was merged with BASF.

      1. Is that a clue Jonathan?
        And how did you figure that out? Must have cheated on Google yourself!
        I did not expect cheating from a highly acclaimed Roger Federer guru!
        Shame on you!!! πŸ˜›

      2. Well kind of a clue..

        Gaurav put an extra bit in brackets on his answer explaining why he knew it, and I was explaining why I know it too – they had a big operation close to where I live before they changed names after merger. Otherwise I doubt I’d have figured it out.

        I think if you lived in Europe you’d have heard of them!

  4. Half the time I had no idea but just guessed or made up answers. Interesting to know what’s the average score here in the end.

    And have a happy Christmas/Holiday/New Year to you, too!

    1. Murli made them tough! Some of them you just gotta think for a bit and answer will probably come. I thought I had no idea on like 2 of them but worked them out.

      1. Murli sure made it tough. Reminds me of that bower, Muralitharan who didn’t make it any easy either πŸ™‚

  5. Wow. I think I knew 2 of them, maybe 3 – but fun questions. Not sure if I should just not answer, or go Gaurav’s route & answer with a (“google”) disclaimer to most of them!

    1. Yeah they were really well thought out, Murli said he is a quizmaster though so clearly an expert question maker. I wouldn’t know where to begin coming up with some of them.

    2. ok, I actually filled it out (without using Google), & I knew marginally more than I thought I did. Still had 7 outright question marks responses. For those who are interested in this kind of thing, filling in what you know a) helps you remember what you thought you didn’t know, and b) makes you more interested in what the correct answers are.

      I’m sure I used to know who Annette’s previous boyfriend was, but it’s lost in the murkiness of time…

  6. Wow! Bloody hell, that was tough. I could give educated guesses to all the questions involving fed or fed and edberg. A couple of ideas and nothing more for the non fed questions. And educated guesses for the edberg questions.

  7. I’ll give it a go without cheating. For starters, I thought Stan was wearing a dress in the 1st question! Then had a closer look at the name. I won’t get too many of these.

      1. [of course cheats never prosper]

        Are you sure, Jon? 14 slams, and 27 Masters 1000’s tell otherwise. πŸ™‚

  8. Tough! Helps if you’ve read rene stauffers book which is quite nerdy on family facts! Also helps if you have been around a few decades of tennis…….

  9. I watched the Match for Africa. Didn’t understand a word but seemed like a fun time. Roger looked very appreciative of Stan to play with him. The little girl was quite a powerhouse. Great voice and forehand!

    1. I’ve watched it too and it was really fun to watch πŸ™‚ I only understood the French parts lol

      Can’t wait for the real stuff to start again πŸ™‚

    2. I watched parts of the match itself, missed the beginning with the little girl. Loved the bit where Roger twirled his racquet front to back as Stan was getting ready to serve… and kept twirling… and kept twirling….

      After Stan had a great get to return a drop shot basically sideways across the front of the court, out of Fed’s reach, & the comms had a couple words with each, Stan said something along the lines of, you know, I’m in pretty good shape too, and he forgot that sometimes I can even accelerate!

      Another couple of times he said, are there any Romands (Swiss from the French-speaking parts) here??? All I hear is Swiss Germans!!! He seemed to be a pretty good sport about the whole thing.

      Was pleased to see Mirka there as well looking happy.

    3. I didn’t see any but I saw the clip of the tweener. Looks like it raised a fair few Swiss francs.

      Does anyone know if Mirka verbally abused Stan again from the crowd? πŸ˜†

  10. Nothing to do with the quiz, but has anyone else in the UK read their Radio Times carefully? Roger is being interviewed in the “Today” programme on BBC Radio 4 on Boxing Day. Yes, folks, that’s sometime between 6 and 9 am (good job it won’t be live – Roger isn’t exactly a morning person, I gather!). Don’t know whether people from outside the UK can get at the radio stations – they used to be rather more easily accessible than the TV ones, I think.

    1. Here is an article about the Today program on BBC radio 4 schedule from Friday, December 26 to Wednesday, December 31: That Today program on BBC radio 4 can be accessed on the BBC website I have listen to it on demand b/c if the show airs 6a to 9a weekdays in the UK that’s 5 hours ahead of the east coast in the US and I will be at work.
