Good try, but the "87" actually represents 8/7 (8th July) :) Forms part of an important date in my life but not the one you're thinking of
I actually think I know now, but if you don't want me to guess, that's fine. I just thought that after you said "before 1995-ish" I could guess your age.

Correct - just behind the royal box.
And the end of my school career (which I miss a lot nowadays) - those really were the days.
Yeah, my school career was over in 2008. So true. My experience is that you want to get out of there ASAP when you're in there, but not long after you want to go back because it was easy compared to "real life."

2. Which player won his lone Masters title here in 2010?

3. Who did Philippoussis defeat in the 1999 Final?

4. IW was won seven straight years by American players, from 1991- 1997. Who ended that streak the following year?

5. Who was the last American to win this title, and what year?

6. Since 2000, there have only been three times that the winner overcame a 1st set loss. Can you name them?

7. Which Czechoslovakian won this title?
