    bloody hell, i didn't have a clue on this one, so i went by the countries numbers in population. AUS was my last guess, as their population is around 16.7million people, and i thought England with it's rich history would have this one.

    Good question though

    Ok, getting tougher, perhaps...

    In what year were all five US OPEN championships (men's and women's singles and doubles and mixed doubles) first played concurrently at one location?

    1892

    1927

    1968

    1979

    Oh, thats a nasty one. Umm...I'm gonna go with '68 or '79 when Flushing Meadows Tennis Center was opened. I think it was moved over there after not having enough room to be played somewhere else.

    This is a guess though. Nice question.

    I will go with Borg. I know Lendl won I think couple, and Edberg at least got one. Chang never made it that far, he likes the clay court from being a counter punch player, not an agressive player like the type you have to be to win a hard court (fast court) tourney.

    I thought borg never won the french, but the rest he cleaned up at.

    I'm going w/ Chang.

    Btw, I want the next question...
