Am a big supporter of that four slams/four surfaces proposal...try to exert some of your influence to pull that off,okay?

So far,only Burisleif has answered as to whether or not I should change or keep the thread title due to Caro's ranking drop

If your going to keep changing it, then why not just stick to the tittles original literary reference, i.e. everything before the colon?

Well,I'm not going to constantly change it...the only reason for the slight modification is that the original title mentioned Caro's #1 WTA ranking...and,in retrospect,that may have been somewhat short-sighted since,for the next few weeks at least,she won't honestly hold that position.

The new title is a bit vaguer and doesn't require any modification if/when Caroline regains the #1 ranking

As you wish, tis superfluous to the essence but doth not offend me to war.

Space after the comma pls... It is a punctuation mark you know.

I think it'd be a bit better if there wasn't a #1 before "Sunshine Queen".

Ironic really.
It's sorta like I've stepped into a Julio Cortázar novel.

It actually would be funny if you made posts like that in GM.

I don't think i have read his work, "Novels as dull as dishwater, with the grease of random sentiments floating on top." Italo Calvino
