To posters of match results

How about ceasing the childish pseudo-names in the result posting titles.

Re: To posters of match results

I purposefully started a new thread announcing Daniela's win over Na because I think that "nickname" for Hantuchova is incredibly cruel and disgusting. I wish the moderators would consider banning it. Please post in my score thread to show support for calling players by their real name

Re: To posters of match results

Go buy a sense of humor. It is a freaking tennis forum, freaking GM, not a boring philosophical and political forum where we have actually to be a bit serious.
Sometimes it is good to behave like a kid as long as it does not hurt anyone. Nicknames, players wars and goat posters are epic.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Re: To posters of match results

I agree. They should also always put the name of the tourney in the title and the round. it annoys me to only see Sharapova def Henin and the score.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Re: To posters of match results

oh loosen up a bit ! It is not like players would be hurt by reading us. If they do, well what about the fierce competition on the field?

Well, then we certainly could be on to something in here

Yes, let's just take a syllable out of everyone's name and repeat it. That is so creative.

Re: To posters of match results

This is TF, a place full of lame and childish people. Learn to accept that and have at least a little sense of humor. If you can't stand seeing all these pseudo names, you can choose not to browse the forums.

Maria Sharapova,Vera Zvonareva,Maria Kirilenko,Julia Goerges

This. As long as we know who are the players involved.

Re: To posters of match results

I don't mind a little bit of creativity, but sometimes it is very difficult to sort through all the crap in the thread title to figure out what the actual match result was.
