Theres a good article on Guardian.co.uk dated 13 March about Andys knee problems, the reporter says that there are x-rays available to prove that he wasn't lying about his knee before DC.

Yes, that's mentioned in the article, it cost £1000 and he has to wear it for 20mins a day for the next 150 days.  It's to try and bring the gap between the 2 sections of his knee together abit.

This forum does odd things from time to time - last night when I posted this, the subject/heading was 'CLOSING ON NO 1' and this was showing in the Index - today that subject/heading has disappeared to be replaced with News Article General Tennis or something equally blah  Eyebrow raise.  How does this happen - Gremlins in the system ?


The topics original name or subject is "News articles (General Tennis)". While a user can change the subject of an individual post to a new name, and it will appear in the index, this is changed back when a reply is made to the topic to the original title unless you again change it to what you want. Hope that makes sense (and hope that's right)

Indeed, it wouldn't be very good if someone other than the topic starter could change the title of the thread.

Seems you've just popped it in the wrong thread. Cause Closing in on No 1 thread does exist...(well actually it's battle for no 1)

I understand what you say but don't understand the logic of the topic returning to tis original title because a reply has been made ?


Simple, when you click "Reply" the forum software fills in "Subject" automatically. It does this by taking and copying the subject of the first reply as that's USUALLY what people are talking about in latter posts. Smile

Wrong thread?  I must be dense.

Nope, seems that's me. It's all beyond me anyway. I usually just use the quick reply box anyway.

But with something like that you could just create a new topic. There's a button for that on each board's main menu. (but then you know that cause you've created topics before... ignore me. I'm speaking crap!)

Hawk-eye Rules unified

The four tennis governing bodies, the ITF, ATP, WTA Tour and Grand Slams, have agreed to adopt a unified challenge system in all tournaments.

Players will be allowed to make up to four unsuccessful challenges per set at any tournament that uses electronic line-calling systems.

Since Hawk-Eye technology was introduced tournaments had been allowed to set their own rules for the system.

Is it just me or did the umpire make a mistake with Karlovic's challenges number in the 3rd set. Not that it mattered because he didn't use it but after Ivo's second incorrect challenge the umpire said Mr Karlovic has one challenge remaining. Could have been quite important. 4 challenges is quite a lot though. I think we'll see them used more if they get that many.
