    My unusual quiz question is the following:

    What was unusual about todays match compared to other matches that Djoko plays against guys of a similar ranking as Kohlschreiber?

    Hint: The corrwect answer (ie my answer!) is reflected in the way the players shook hands after the match!

    The winner is the guy who first posts the answer that im thinking of or something very close to it!

    Prize: A very cool tennis t-shirt that i promise to send to the winner in size that he/she wants! (Btw: This is not a comercial promotional stunt, im not selling anything!)

    They did not pat one another in the chest/tummy?

    Did they do the normal every day handshake, rather than the "Dude" handshake?

    Maybe i was a bit unclear, but i am looking for something in terms of how the players fought out the match not how they shook hands afterwards. However the person who has the right answer will likely be able to back it up by a few details in way that the two players "thanked each other for the match".

    (If u dont know the answer for sure u will not be able to guess it! So maybe this does not qualify as a quiz in the traditional sense! :confused:

    Regarding the post match "thank u for the match" ritual, Djokovic did what the etiquette prescribes after this kind of scoreline, ie he hit the top of the net with the stringbed side of the racket. However he did something else which reflected the particular way the match was fought out which was a bit unusual! :twisted:

    The French kiss was a bit unusual, but I thought quite appropriate, considering that the match took place in France.

    (My T-shirt size is XL)

    Ahh, I think I've got it. Was it when Kohlschreiber went to shake hands with Novak, but instead slipped his hand between Novak's legs and started cupping him?

    I watched the match, saw the handshake, and don't know what you mean. What's the answer?

    Kohlschreiber had more winners, more aces, better winning percetage withg the first serve, fastest serves (both 1st and 2nds), better net stats, and only 1% difference on 'Receiving points won' ?

    Is it any of that?

    I didn't see the match but I'll take a guess.....did Novak shake the umpires hand first?

    He tapped the netcord with his racquet in honor of Kohlie's setpoint netcord winner, apologized for smashing a racquet early in the match and said "I lost four sets in a row to you here and that's all you were going to get!".

    Ok ok, sorry, I'll take this more seriously.

    Novak shook Kohlschreibers hand, pointed in the direction of the trophy with his racquet and said (with a wink) "...Das ist Verboten!"

    Keep your t-shirt, tell us what you thought was unusual...I watched the YouTube "balle de match" several times and there was absolutely nothing extraordinary about the conclusion...Djok tapped the netcord once, extended his hand, Kohlie shook it, they embraced a tiny bit and Kohlie shook the chair's hand first. End of clip.
