19) In what year did Goran Ivanisevic win Wimbledon? 2001
20) What is the name of the 1971 born actor who played Borat and Ali G? Sacha Baron Cohen

and a tie- breaker if one should be needed (closest to the correct answer will get an extra point) on what day of 1971 was I born? 20th July

Entries in by 10pm please!

There was a tie for 1st place with two clever entrants gaining 14 points but when the tie break was taken into consideration the results are as follows:
1st - Purplelynn
2nd - Cathers
Joint 3rd - Caledonia
Joint 3rd - Ethelandedna

Well done everybody!

We have some good answers already in, but if you need to escape the heatwave why not grab a glass of something cold and try the quiz - there are two hours left
