    Again, the winner will be declared on Sunday, October 21, 2007.

    Hints:

    I am an intermediate tennis player who started playing tennis in summer of 1989. I was in 8th grade. The racket I used in high school was extremely popular in the early 1990s.

    shojun25 was the first to get Part 2 completely correct. (shojun25, your Part 1 was way off, by the way). For his efforts on Part 2, he will receive a set of Signum Pro Poly Plasma 17.

    Please email me: hong_sam @ hotmail.com with your contact information.

    Contest is officially closed. Unfortunately, no one got both Part 1 and 2 correct.

    Shojun25 was the first to get entire Part 2 correct; so please email me today to claim your "Best Effort" prize, a set of SPPP (Orange). That way, I can mail it out early in the week.

    The correct order for Part 1:

    1.Prince Precision Response Titanium (L4) @344 grams
    2.Donnay Pro 1 Limited OS TW Version (L5) @349 grams
    3.Puma Boris Becker Super (L6) @363 grams
    4.Donnay Bjorn Borg Internation Tennis Team (L4) @373 grams
    5.Dunlop Maxply McEnroe (Wood Version 1983, L4) @378 grams
    6.Donnay Bjorn Borg Allwood (L4) @384 grams

    Look for more contests to come. I will make it easier next time.
