Season 127 - Tie-Break

Tennis Grand Slam Men’s Singles Winners in the Open Era from USA List as many of the Tennis Grand Slam men’s singles winners in the open era from USA as possible.

List as many of the Tennis Grand Slam men’s singles winners in the open era from USA as possible. Listing players that won a Grand Slam before the open era will deduct a point, so will naming players that have never won a singles Grand Slam title. You can answer several times until 9 o’clock CET tonight (18 July). You answer by sending a chat message to the page. There will be no continuous update of who has the most correct answers, nor will the quizmaster answer whether or not an answer is correct or incorrect when it has been submitted. Players are allowed to delete submitted answers until the deadline, if they realize an answer given might be incorrect. 

If two or more players finish with the same number of tie-break points, the player who has given the most correct answers (but also more incorrect answers) is the winner. If the players are still tied, they will get a new question, where they will be asked for one answer to a question, they will not know the exact answer to. The player who comes closest to the correct answer will then be declared the winner.

Everybody can play along of course, but it will not give anybody additional points - the-tie break is only meant to sort out the ranking of the top players.

Example:

Player one names the following players:

A, B, C and D and X, Y and Z

Player two names the following players:

A, B, and C and X

A, B, C and D are correct answers

X, Y and Z are wrong answers

Therefore

Player one has a score of 1 (4 correct minus 3 incorrect)

and

Player two has a score of 2 (3 correct minus 1 incorrect)

Thus Player two wins with a score of 2 even if player one had more correct answers overall.
