Over 35 was veteran then. Is it still the case? I think veteran should be moved up to over 40 at least now. Or after one formally retires over 35. This may be practically the case since most possibly Nadal and Djokovic are not really interested in the veterans tournament. :-)

That’s straight out of the Jeopardy skits with Will Ferrell and Sean Connery on SNL, Jay!

Jay, will you be so kind as to change it to "Slam title winners"?

Hmm. Seems like a perfectly good word is going to get obsolete at this rate!

Yeah, let us leave it there, PKB. It is a perfectly correct word. Our own minds being in the gutter should not be a reason to change the title... :)

It’s a shame we don’t have more women members and the few we have don’t participate much now. Shaili used to and there were a couple more. I hope they are reading and will consider more active participation.
