Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What was Serena's year-end ranking at the end of 2001?

Answer: six

Serena also ended 2000 with a ranking of number six in the world. Serena won 3 titles in 2001 but was plagued by an ongoing left foot injury that consequently kept her from playing the season-ending championships. Thus, her ranking stayed the same.
2. In 2001, how far did Serena advanced at the Australian Open?

Answer: Quarterfinal

Serena was taken out by Martina Hingis in a thrilling 6-2 3-6 8-6 match. It lasted for 2 hours and 19 minutes with Hingis coming back to win the final set after trailing 4-1 and was two points away from elimination at 5-4. Great match!
3. Serena paired up with __________ to win the doubles tournament in Leipzig, Germany, in 2002.

Answer: Alexandra Stevenson

This was the first doubles tournament that Serena won with a partner other than Venus. In Tokyo in the Princess Cup (tournament preceding Leipzig), Serena paired up with the legendary tennis player, Martina Navratilova in doubles. However, they fell in the quarterfinal 7-5 6-4 to eventual champions, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and Svetlana Kuznetsova.
4. Serena and Venus have paired up to win all four grand slams doubles titles?

Answer: True

Serena and her sister are only the fifth pair to achieve this when they won the 2001 Australian Open doubles title. They won the Wimbledon doubles in 2000 and the French and US doubles in 1999. Other pairs who also accomplished this include Martina Navratilova and her partner Pam Shriver, and also Mary Jo Fernandez and her partner Natasha Zvereva.
5. Serena and ____________ were mixed doubles finalists at Roland Garros in 1998.

Answer: Luis Lobo

This was Serena's first Grand Slam final of any kind. Coincidentally, her team was beaten 6-4 6-4 by no one other than her sister Venus, and Venus's partner, Justin Gimelstob.
6. What are the first names of Serena's other three sisters excluding Venus?

Answer: Lyndrea, Isha, & Yetunde

Serena's other three sisters are all athletic themselves, but they don't play professional tennis. I think two Williams are enough to handle!
7. The ____________ Open was Serena's first clay-court final in her career.

Answer: German

Scary to think that this was Serena's first clay-court final!Actually, Serena has never been past the quarterfinal of any clay-court event before this. What an improvement!
8. Serena says she is allergic to _____________.

Answer: peanuts

If you ever decide to give Serena a gift, double check to see if it's peanuts first. We don't want her pulling out of a match because she had nausea.
9. Serena is the first player to earn more than 6,000 ranking points in a year?

Answer: False

Serena is not the first, but she is second only to Martina Hingis. By winning a tour high 8 titles including the French, Wimbledon, and US Opens in 2002, Serena had racked up an unsurpassable amount of points. She ended the year 940 points ahead of her nearest rival Venus Williams, and 2,284 POINTS ahead of third ranked Jennifer Capriati. Congratulations!
10. Serena's WTA Tour mentor is ______________.

Answer: Zina Garrison

Zina is a highly qualified mentor, as she was a former top 5 singles and doubles player. She reached the Wimbledon finals in 1990, losing to Martina Navratilova 6-4 6-1. However, in the quarters she took out Monica Seles 3-6 6-3 9-7, and in the semis she ousted Steffi Graf 6-3 3-6 6-4. Not bad at all!
