Yes, lets remind ourselves of the off topic rule. lol

Off-Topic: Please try to avoid going off-topic as it's disrespectful to the thread owner and can irritate readers who are expecting on-topic discussion. It is essential this rule is respected for official news articles as in those circumstances moving off-topic discussions is a complicated process due to the thread being directly linked to our home page.
sorry

That was when I was moving your post over to here from the news article, I had to rename the title as I forgot to set it correctly when I moved it.

I spoke to Chris (TCK) yesterday, he is one of the most pedantic people I know and studied journalism, he thinks the original headline was fine because it was a headline rather than being in a sentence. Maybe Stagger was being a bit too picky but I was concerned when Elly and Daisy immediately agreed, hence the change.

I'm sorry, but did you just reference yourself? You might as well have included the page number, too.

Smells like a bored English teacher if you ask me yes lol

Actually, you missed a really great opportunity to use one of Justine Henin's favourites ...... "aggresivity" (pronounced .... ah-gress-eev-itee) ..... I just love that one !

Could I suggest that the full scoreline of yesterday's match appears a little higher up in the article? - I think it's important to know what it is fairly early on, and currently you only get to see it on the front page after you expand the article. Great article though - very informative for someone like me who was out when it was on!! Smile

Thanks, I've made the edit... this is something we always try and do but I forgot to include it in the news guidelines that new writers read through, it's now there Smile

This needs to be corrected as some of the quotes are by Patrick Macenroe and not all by John Macenroe as the lead-in states .....
