The deciding round was an anagram round of 5 male tennis champions.The first couple went for Rafa Nadal and the second couple for Bjorn Borg.Despite the anagram showing Rafael Nadal they let them have it saying it was difficult to pronounce his name.So is an anagram an anagram or isn’t it.
Their anagrams are arranged in alphabetical order.

Hopkirk is an anagram an anagram or not, if it isn’t why bother?
Agreed, they got the right person.
They weren't asked to solve the anagram, they were told to identify the male Wimbledon champion.
They never won the jackpot
any way.
They've disallowed many answers in the past for wrong pronunciation, i have thought at the time that it seemed to be a bit harsh as they knew the answer.
Rather amusing how the John McEnroe one caught them all out......

I agree, grumpy. The anagram was Rafael Nadal. I thought Armstrong should have pressed the contestant for the ‘proper’ answer.
