Themeless Mini #2

· By ditfos · Published 2023-01-21T09:08:12.427Z

This is intended to be a small yet tricky puzzle. After seeing that the completion rate on this puzzle is hovering near 10% w/o helpers (among this audience!), perhaps I went a little overboard. Spoilers hidden here: 5D5DA and D, typically?[-----] in particular, if you hadn't worked it out, is a pun on 'typically', with A and D being the keys "NEAR S".

    I didn't find this any harder than a lot of puzzles on here. Did it without the hint, though i had to guess the tennis player. Still took a while to work out 5d5DA and D, typically?[-----] even with your explanation
