Murli Pillai

Fanatic Federer fan. Watch all his matches on TV if shown ( outside working hours ! ), and quite often drive down to Dubai from Muscat to watch him live. Apart from being an IT / Telecom sales professional, am a quiz-master, classic rock & blues fan, movie buff and a veteran tennis-ball cricketer. Love to research on Fed’s on-court & off-court doings – the Fedberg quiz an outcome of that.

  1. The first ten was tough, I got just 4 (Paganini, GW and two brands), the second was much easier I missed the age one, I still can’t figure how was I supposed to get it from the context, I presume the girl is Beli Bencic

    1. Good effort, I think it’s tricky. I figured most of them out but I was staring at them for over an hour when putting it together before Murli sent me the answers.

  2. Hi Murli, long time no see! Are you kidding? Yes, you are. Always. Was so difficult but I got more than half, well barely 😆
    Thanks for the fun!

  3. WTF is correct. I didn’t do so well. My excuse is I don’t get news from Europe very often unless it’s about Brexit. 🙂
    Murli, you are a crafty rotten sod. Did you see Fed in Dubai this year?

  4. I got 11, most of them about tennis jajaja.
    You missguided me at the missile thing, I thought it was González obviously. His nickname was Bombardero (bombardier).

    1. Yeah that one is tricky, you need to know the name of the missile to really have a chance, rather than working out the name of it from the player first.

      And I never knew he had that nickname, just thought he was Gonzo.

      1. And a lot more during clay season. Fed’s are all bonus! I think Sascha decided to play Marrakech thinking he wants extra points that he miss during 1Q but w that loss, he must have been regretting it, big time. Last 3 WTF-its (non big 4s) have been all cursed next season.
