It's one thing to have an opinion that someone's ranking is "grossly inflated". Subjecting someone's name to rude puns on the tournament's official website is another.
The other thing is that a lot of TF posters use even derogatory nicks for their faves as kind of endearments, or as ways to vent when we're upset when we think they underperform. I've certain called Lena D. "Demented," Wickmayer "Witchmayer", Andrea H. "Chipmunk", Azarenak "Vuvurenka", Venus "Vinas", etc. and they are some of my favorite players. And Lord knows I've made enough jokes about Jo-La's backhand.

And yes, a lot of our player nicknames are lame, or even unfathomable to people who don't follow TF. But that's part of the stupid fun of having a place like this.

But I agree that sort of name calling has no place on the US Open web site.

If you are doing it on McHale's behalf then you might as well write a letter to Gloria Allred.

That way you might get a little "thank you" cut from the compensation money Gloria would no doubt be able to squeeze out of USTA.

It doesn't sound like you're biased AT ALL.

Pretty poor judgement in the first place, it's good they changed the title, Mchale will not be happy with that.

Disappointing to see them change the title. It was funny AND accurate.

While the nickname was funny, really, they should keep the nickname to themselves

Re: Bombshell: US Open dubs Christina McFail!

You guys realize that the writer might come up with the headline, but multiple editors had to approve it and hit "send" for it to publish. A writer can't just publish whatever they want unchecked, especially for something like the US Open tournament site.

Besides, sports headlines are supposed to be funny/kinda tacky. Seems like he's been doing this with other articles too:
