peRFect Tennis Turns 2 Years Old – Another Giveaway

Bonjour tout le monde! The French Open is in full swing and that also coincides with my blog celebrating it's second Birthday as on the 30th of May 2011 I wrote my very first post after Roger defeated Stan Wawrinka in straight sets at the French Open

Looking back it doesn't feel like more than 2 minutes ago and I was pretty fortunate to start blogging so close to one of the most memorable Federer matches of recent times – the epic Federer vs. Djokovic Semi final where Roger put in a stunning performance to win in 4 sets.

How did my Blog look back then?

My Blog in 2011

As you can see it's changed quite a bit since I first started and I've actually gone through a couple of major design changes. What started as a simple blog layout with a handful of readers has developed into a more magazine style layout that's visited by lots of Federer fans on a daily basis which I am extremely happy with.

A Thankyou To All Readers & Federer Fans

I'd also just like to say a big thankyou to everyone who has read this blog, commented here or shared one of my posts be it on Facebook & Twitter.

Without you guys I doubt the blog would have continued for 2 years but with you guys returning here and commenting more and more often it's become a great destination for both Federer and general tennis fans to share their views on the GOAT.

Birthday Giveaway

No Entry Federer Fans Only

Like last year I'm doing another giveaway for the fans, this time I'm giving away five Nike RF baseball caps, all you need to be in with a chance of winning is to complete my very own Roger Federer quiz – more details below.

Nike RF Cap
5 of these are up for grabs!

To be in with a chance of winning you have to complete my Roger Federer quiz, the questions have been devised by me and are sure to put you through your paces. Although don't worry there's some easy ones too so even if you have only just started watching Federer you will be able to answer them.

There's 25 questions in total, once you have answered them you will be asked to submit your email address. Although this is a quiz, I'm picking 5 winners completely at random.

But I will be looking at your answers to make sure you haven't just picked random answers to complete the quiz quickly without even trying to get a good score πŸ™‚

You can take the quiz as many times as you want, but it's 1 entry per person. Any attempts to game the system will result in instant disqualification.

The competition closes on Monday 10th June and it's open to entries worldwide!

Take the Roger Federer Quiz

Good luck!

PS You won't receive your score immediately, once all entries are in I will notify you πŸ™‚

If you have any questions about the quiz or any problems with it, just leave a comment below and I'll get back to you.

About Jonathan

Huge fan of Roger Federer - I'll pretty much try and watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or tweeting about tennis I play regularly myself and use this blog to share my thoughts on Fed and tennis in general.

  1. Happy birthday!!! I have tried the quiz without any cheat sheet, I think I got only half of the questions correct πŸ™

  2. Happy birthday πŸ™‚

  3. Even on an anniversary post, I still couldn’t get the first comment. LOL

    Anyway, Happy birthday PeRFect Tennis!

      • Let Me add this Jonathan, this is not a blog anymore.. this is qualified for a legit tennis website for tennis especially for Roger Federer. It’s easy to navigate unlike other blogs that looks like a puzzle with all the posts mixed up with ads. This has, more often than not, ad free.

        Maybe Roger should hire you to revamp his website? It really looks old. I mean, he’s one of my favorite players, but his website is being left out by others.

  4. Happy birthday peRFect tennis πŸ™‚
    Thank you Jonathan for creating and maintaining such a great blog. And also thanks to all those passionate fans of Roger whom I read their comments with great joy.

    Once I was a football buff! But after my childhood hero, Paolo Maldini retired, I gradually lost my passion for football, then found the spirits of Paolo in Roger πŸ˜€ I’ve started to be a Roger fan from late 2010, and always believed that he will win more slams. He won one in 2012 and am sure he will win at least another sooner or later.

    Nice quiz! Some tricky questions, at least I’m hundred percent sure about question no. 25 πŸ˜‰

  5. Hi Jonathan,

    Happy Birthday to PeRFect Tennis! Glad to leave a note in time, as I’ve just got back from another 2 week trip today. I couldn’t watch any of Roger’s matches since later stage of Madrid but thanks to your posts I had been well-informed. Wow you’ll have 1000 fans very soon. Keep at the goat job!

  6. Happy birthday!! πŸ˜€

  7. 25th question cracked me up πŸ˜€

  8. Angie Saint-Yl

    Joyeux anniversaire! πŸ™‚

  9. Congratulations Mr. Jonathan! More power to you… πŸ™‚

  10. Sid TheCookieThief

    I think I may have accidentally clicked “No” to the question, “Is Roger Federer the GOAT?” Does that mean I am disqualified? πŸ™‚ I’m sure at least three of my answers are incorrect, had to guess them. Can’t wait to see how I did.

    Happy Birthday to PeRFect tennis!

    • Sid i love your avatar picture, you are officially Batmans nemesis!! πŸ™‚ ps ” Why so Serious!!”

    • Cheers Sid.

      But yes unfortunately it means you are disqualified. You have gone into the prize draw to win a Babloat Aerodrive Pro πŸ˜›

      • If SID was to win the quiz, somehow i dont see Sid changing his Wilson Wand to the Babolat Bazzooka. If its good enough for Roger then i suppose Sid wont change either !!! But if Sid did change racquets he may get that extra 1000rpm and blitz everyone and his left handed nemesis in his tennis club and he can tell everyone that his strings and racquet has got nothing to do him winning !!! πŸ™‚

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Ouch! But it’s only fair that anyone who thinks Roger isn’t the GOAT, deserves a Babolat πŸ™‚

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Seraj, two things, first of all, get a Gravatar. And second of all, get a Gravatar πŸ™‚

        I don’t think I’ll win the quiz. I might get 21/25 (and if my guesses are 100% correct, 25/25). I’m going to go back and check with Google for an accurate result.

        That left handed nemesis will pay the price. It’s only a matter of time πŸ™‚

      • Gravatars are this summers must have accessory.

  11. Happy Birthday!!! πŸ˜€
    Keep up the great work! πŸ™‚

  12. For Jonathan… First of all i would like to say happy Birthday to your 2nd year of this tennis site πŸ˜€ . Also a huge thank you to yourself for putting up regular posts n analysis on Roger n all other tennis related issues. Your blogs are intellegent, in depth, witty and you say it how it is without sugar coating delicant issues. Its a testament also as your readers including myself mirror your points, therefore you have loyal and regular readers!!!
    I have to say for a long time iv been reading alot of other articles via tabloid tv txt n internet n by far your site is alot better than the rest. For eg Bleacher report vs Perfect tennis is like “chalk n cheese” please note cheese is my favorite and not meant by anyway cheesy or any other derogatary meaning πŸ™‚ i couldnt think of a better example but when i do ill post it. Ps iv stopped reading Bleacher report.
    Anyway please keep up the hard work as i know myself its not easy writting up posts. You should also be proud of yourself as regular readers and bloggers who like me think this dedicated Federer site is awsome. I only wish i found this site long time ago!!!!
    So in a nutshell happy B’day and cheers Jonathan πŸ™‚ keep doing your thing man. Serajul

  13. Congratulations Johnatan, your blog is the best please keep up with good job

  14. I’m so pleased to have stumbled across this fantastic blog! Although you’re (understandably) a massive fan of Fed, your posts still manage to be objective, and are very well-written. Many congrats!

    • Cheers Ludwig.

      Well if you trawl through the archives you’d probably find objectivity isn’t something I aim for all the time πŸ˜‰ but I just like to keep it honest.

      Thanks,

      Jonathan

  15. Happy Birthday peRFect Tennis! To think i have almost been following the blog for a year now, how times have past! Keep up the good work Jonathan, you know, as long as you keep posting, we keep visiting! Awesome quiz by the way, you should make more of these in the future!

  16. Happy birthday Jonanthan – I only discovered your blog a short while ago and had never felt compelled to comment on blogs before but if your a fed fan you have to be on this blog as we are all like minded and love tennis and of course our tennis hero – keep up the wonderful work

  17. Happy 2nd Birthday! Lets hope Fed can give u the perfect pressie! A RG coupe des mousquetaires !!!

  18. Flippin heck i tried goin into Gravatar and for some reason it wont go through properly. Its probably me i cant follow simple steps. I will try again tommorow πŸ™

  19. Tough quiz this is, well I knew most of them so as I think I’m a good enough Fed-fan. πŸ˜€

    • How can you get the question wrong?? Didnt you write the quiz ?? Lol πŸ™‚ only joking, i also found couple of question tough so had to guess, so defo know i havent got 25/25. Probably 1/25 knowing my memory of facts.

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Are you serious? 1/25? You at least know that Roger has 17 slams and he is the GOAT? That’s 2/25 right there πŸ™‚

    • Good luck man!

      There are some easy ones, some tricky. Anyway, the draw is completely random, just extra kudos if you do get 100%.

  20. Gustavo Pinillos

    Congratulations!! Great job, great blog!!

  21. Ana Paula Simensato

  24. Thanks so much for a great blog. Nice to come here after a win or a loss. Great therapy!

  25. Awesome quiz!! Happy birthday to your blog and keep up the good work πŸ™‚

    • Sid TheCookieThief

      Harsha, let’s play a game…let’s put your loyalty to the ultimate test. If I were to put a gun to your head, and asked you who is greater, Roger Federer, or Manchester United, and that you must make a choice, what would you say?

      And oh yes, choose wisely πŸ˜‰

    Watching Jack Sock for the first time ever. What a boring player! What kind of forehand grip does he have? Full Western? Or south of full western? πŸ™‚

    • Sid TheCookieThief

      Ha! So Sock eats at a Chipotle in Paris all the time. Well, we got something in common. Not so boring after all πŸ™‚

      • Are i thought iv seen u Sid somewhere before, Chipotles in Paris, on Bernie Ecclestones multi million boat in Monaco, the famous Casino Royale and at Hollywood A-listers partys. Sid you are busted you are part of the millionares club. Sid u are the jet setter, literally. Ps when can i use your private jet so i can see Roger at Wimbledon then US open, also i know you are in with the elite, so free tickets would be nice πŸ™‚ Cheers Sid if you do deny it then i know it to more true!!!! Lol πŸ™‚

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Haha! If I visit Paris…when I visit Paris, I’ll be sure to eat there. Of course the Chipotle Burrito is an absolute junk version of a real Burrito, but it’s oh so tasty! Le Restaurant Gourmet ou l’on mange avec les doigts! Vive Le Burrito!

        I still can’t believe of all places in Paris, Sock eats at Chipotle all the time. I guess he won’t be doing that any more πŸ™‚

  27. really enjoyed taking the quiz πŸ™‚ it looks very nice as well.

  28. Hi Jonathan,

    Remember when Marilyn Monroe sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to JFK or in your country Ginger Spice sang it on Prince Charles birthday……. well imagine me singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to you THAT WAY right now !!!

    Happy birthday for your amazing site and of course for your great articles and comments. It has only been two years?? Wow. I have been posting here for six months (seems much longer).

    What do you want for your birthday? RG title, Wimby title or just plain and simple both?

    Today is my day off and I am watching Rafa now. Lost the first set, won the second set of course.
    Klizan is…… wow, he is good I think.

    And later on, the Goat !!! Go Roger go, lets show Benneteau who is the boss !!!

    • Hey Katyani,

      Thankyou πŸ™‚

      I’ll settle for Roger giving his all on court, but my real birthday is around the time of the US Open so it’d be good he could win there!

      Jonathan

  29. Congrats on the blog J! Thanks for the hard work and commitment you’ve put in over the years- we all appreciate it and you very much! You have great insight and knowledge of all things tennis. Even through losses you always find positives which is always important. Hopefully your blog will able to embark on one more grand slam tournament aka number 18!

    We’ve got a nice little Fedfamily here and you made that possible so good job πŸ™‚

    p.s Do I get extra chance on winning the quiz if i proclaim your blog to be GOAT (which it is win or lose)

    Alysha

  30. What a wonderful thing to do, Jonathan! Cheers!

  31. I loved the match against Benneteau. I think Roger was amazing (especially some of his shots), but I will wait for your article Jonathan. To me he looked more focused now than at the Devvarman match.
    Someone said he looked bored at that match and I agree, but today he was really focused, won in 1,5 hours.
    This was his 899th win, next match 900th!!
    Loved the twins too, they are so cute. I don’t know which one of them looks more like Roger.

    Saw the Rafa match, well you have got to hand it to him, not the conditions he wanted, but he still won. Nice win, even if it is Rafa !!

    Tsonga is playing really dangerous now, Roger will have his hands full. He just won two sets.

  32. Happy Birthday !! I really havent been able to comment much lately cause I was out of town but for pretty much a year I have been completely hooked to your blog and have probably even read every comment here..It is such a wonderful blog..I hope both you and Roger keep going strong for many more years to come..

  33. You should have asked who Fed double bageled in TMC 2005.

    Hardest Q was “which one of these pictures is Roger?”

    You have a fantastic site here Jonathan and I’m thankful you have allowed me to contribute on occasion.

    • Thanks Kyle.

      Yeah that would have been a good one!

      I’ve not looked today at the quiz but yesterday Question 5 was catching a lot of people out πŸ˜‰

      Jonathan

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        I answered “Canas” but I feel Squillari might be the right answer. Definitely not Safin or Agassi.

        And the shoe question, it has got to be the last picture πŸ™‚

      • All will be revealed!

      • Sid, you needn’t look further than this very website to know the answer to that one πŸ˜‰

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        James, you were absolutely right my man. I did a search and immediately found the answer. Who needs Google! πŸ™‚

        Jonathan, now that I’m convinced Squillari is the answer, which I thought was the answer all the time, I’m going to switch my answer. I’m also going to switch another one because I didn’t read the question. It said “in 2006” and I assumed it meant at “a slam”.

  34. Happy Birthday!!! I remember when I first stumbled upon this blog at late 2011, trying to find a pic of Fed’s new racquet (ProStaff) for 2012 and you wrote a post on it! Don’t think I missed a single post since then…

  35. Happy (belated) Birthday, Jonathan! I haven’t commented much, but faithfully read all your posts and everyone’s comments – it’s always interesting; just love it! Thanks eversomuch! πŸ™‚

    ps: are you going to post the answers to the quiz? Hope so; some of those questions were a bit tricky! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Puffin.

      Yes I will be emailing everyone their result. The quiz tool I used is more for surveys so doesn’t mark them immediately but I’ve had a friend make a tool in excel that will mark them once I pull off the results!

  36. Damn! 25 out of 26….didn’t know Q18. I guess I’m a good guesser. Was a fun quiz, thanks πŸ™‚

    • Good scores, guess you marked it yourself!?

    • Sid TheCookieThief

      Wait? What the? You answered all but one correctly? Are you serious? Nobody does that. Not you, not Jonathan, heck even Roger wouldn’t know every answer!

      I mean imagine Roger answering the question, “Is Roger Federer the GOAT?”. Do you think he would answer “yes”? Think about it! πŸ™‚

  37. Hey Jonathan – Congrats on making it to the 2 year mark. πŸ˜‰ I think I’ve been following for about a year now. I so appreciate all the hard work you put into your posts; the stats, your experience, your perception and opinions and even your guest bloggers. But the thing I like most is that you always welcome comments – you always comment back – and I always feel like my opinion is at least noted. The atmosphere is quite welcoming and it’s nice to be able to interact with other die hard Fed Fans. So here’s to continued blogging!! One more thing – I heard about your blog from Ruan so kudos to him for the referral!

    P.S. I’m not sure how I’ll do on the quiz…I guess I’ll just jump in and give it a try.

    • Thanks Wendy πŸ™‚

      Yeah this blog wouldn’t be anywhere near as good without all the comments from the fans, makes it more interesting and helps keep me motivated so thanks for contributing!

      And yeah, Ru-an was one of the main reasons I started this blog as I’d followed his for a while before starting this one so you have him to thank too πŸ˜‰

      Jonathan

  38. Fortunately, I missed the first few games so I didn’t have to worry right from the get go – gets me way too anxious when he starts like that. So really enjoyable match from the point where I joined in to watch and looking forward to the next one. I think he’ll come through over Simon.

    P.S. Rog’s hair didn’t look so bad in his on court interview – even a quarter-inch growth makes a difference. πŸ˜‰

  39. Oops that last comment was meant for your Benneteau post…got distracted I guess following someone’s link. πŸ˜‰

  40. I think im winning this πŸ˜‰

  41. Congrats on the milestone, Jonathan! Took the quiz long back but forgot to comment somehow. Thanks for opening it up to worldwide entries. I really really want that cap!

  42. This is one of my favorite tennis sites along with Ru-an’s blog. Good posts and great comments. Couldn’t ask for more.

  43. Cool quiz btw

  44. Sid TheCookieThief

    Ok, I’ve resubmitted this quiz, Jonathan. Ignore the one I did last week. This time I was on PED’s πŸ™‚

    • This site is a democracy. So let’s put it to the people – should Sid be disqualified for blatantly flouting the rules? First score only!

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Not fair, man. You said multiple entries are allowed. Plus, I simply changed some answers. Ok, I got the Squillari answer by searching this site but I knew it was the right answer.

        Come on folks, vote for me. I’ve been at your service as the Director of Rankings permutations after all πŸ™‚

      • DEMOCRACY! I say yes, for the following reasons:

        1) The score on the quiz isn’t the final determiner of the winner
        2) That Gravatar. ‘Nough said.
        3) You DID say multiple submissions of the quiz itself were allowed
        4) That gravatar…
        5) Flouting the rules in broad daylight is what built our society
        6) Did I mention the Gravatar?

      • Haha actually I did say you can do the quiz as often as you want, forgot about that!

  45. Sid TheCookieThief

    [Flouting the rules in broad daylight is what built our society]

    Best comment ever! πŸ™‚

  46. Hey Jonathan, just took the quiz (yes, I know, last moment, but still).
    Nice quiz. Some questions were difficult.
    Nicely put together. You are a computer wizz. It looked very professional.
    Hope I got a lot of answers right.

  47. Hey Jonathan happy happy birthday! and keep it up and always keep us update about Federer

  48. Sid TheCookieThief

    The results are out! I got 19/25 which is alright. What about all of you? πŸ™‚

    • I got 25! πŸ˜€ Was a pretty tricky quiz. I had used the very useful ranking history timeline from the ATP website for the Mario Ancic ranking question!

      • Sid TheCookieThief

        Conal, that’s blatant cheating man! πŸ™‚

        Jonathan, all these dopers who scored 25 need to be water boarded. They’ll squeal as to where they found their answers!

        I had two goals, to score 20, that I didn’t make, and beat Katyani so I can take over her “Roger’s biggest fan” title! Let’s see how that goes πŸ™‚

      • Conal….. haven’t we learned from our Reborn Renewed RFriend Rafa (4 R’s) that if it looks to good to be true, it is…. Cheating much??

        Sid…..Seriously, you can be rebirthed two or three times, YOU OF ALL PEOPLE, will NEVER take that title away from me, I OWN that title !!! I AM Roger Federer’s biggest fan !!!
        So don’t even try or joke about it….. Find your own hero, Roger is mine !!!

    • I ended up with 21/25. Fairly happy with that, since I didn’t use any form of help. Would like to know what I got wrong so I can learn πŸ˜€
