What is Wimbledon?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

This is the classic clue that plays much easier on an airdate than it does on a tape date. This episode was taped back in mid-March, when Wimbledon hasn’t been on everyone’s mind for the past week.

At Wimbledon, it’s known as the Last 8 Club. Not only are the singles quarterfinalists members, but also if you reach the semifinals in mens’ and ladies’ doubles, as well as the finals in mixed doubles.

The club has existed since 1986.

    • (To John:

      My prediction of April 19 of “2 or 3 5-timers” is looking pretty darned good right now, we now have our 2nd 5-time champion since then, and I don’t think we have a great deal of time left until the end of the season!)

        Yes, and luckily for Jon it was a very easy FJ today. The “tea” part was pretty much a giveaway and Jon is pretty safely in the ToC now I think.
        Thought this would be a 3/3. J has a tendency for sport events as FJ when they are happening. Wasn’t there a FJ about the Tour de France a couple of years ago when they were racing the TdF , I think it’s already 2 years ago, I am not quite sure.

  2. Mark Barrett | July 6, 2017 at 1:49 pm |

    When there is not a special week of games or a tournament it seems like July is consistent for having a TOC qualifier play in the month.

  3. With the way Jon plays, I doubt he would last as a ToC semifinalist based on his DD efficiency. -$4,300 on DDs?! It’s good to play it safe in some cases, but with the way the other ToC players have done, his chances could vary.

    Money won by DD effort:

    Sam Deutsch: $2,000 earned
    Tim Kutz: $5,600 earned
    Todd Giese: $10,400 earned
    Andrew Pau: $23,800 earned
    Buzzy Cohen: $21,600 earned
    Jason Sterlacci: $5,400 earned
    Hunter Appler: $5,700 earned
    Pranjal Vachaspati: $34,810 earned
    Seth Wilson: $15,100 earned
    Tim Aten: $5,000 earned
    Lisa Schlitt: $11,700 earned
    Lilly Chin: $13,200 earned
    Alan Lin: $18,000 earned
    David Clemmons: $1,000 earned
    Jon Eisenman: -$4,300 earned

    I don’t know about you guys, but with the new batch of ToC players we’ve seen, (Including stealing spots for to make it in the tournament) we’re seeing them play at such high caliber levels that we don’t see often unlike the other batches of ToC players. I think being bold and aggresive with betting is key to getting into this ToC with these guys.

    • Dal Higbee | July 6, 2017 at 4:36 pm |

      I hope the Tournament of Champions airs November 6 to 17, 2017. That is my prediction, guys!

      • I feel as though those dates have been what I’ve been saying for the last six months.

        • Well…based upon seeing the DD earning statistics, Andy, how different are we expecting from this year’s ToC as opposed to last year’s?

    • I agree that he might have trouble. I’ve been getting way too many Triple Stumpers lately, kind of my personal gauge of the quality of contestants. He’s doing well on some pretty tough Finals, though…

    Jon could possibly surpass Julia Collins for the 2nd most consecutive wins on the final episode this season.

  5. Maurine Gutowski | July 6, 2017 at 8:06 pm |

    “Tea” a dead giveaway for me. Cricket??? Maybe tea was too strong a British clue for Rishi!

  6. when are they going to pre tape the tournament of champions episodes? is it at the end of this month or sometime next month?
