Sorry about Gulbis, Evita!

Yay, finally some good Hilde vs JM banter again.

Good it's not the French "Allez".
Our personal name law here forbids to give the name of a historical person like 'Abraham Lincoln' or general words like 'Genius' AFAIK, or use the numbers and signs in a name. Doesn't mean we don't have names given if the law doesn't clearly forbid them.

They used to be very strict with first names here but it looks like that's no longer the case.

Although, it depended on community to community.
When my father went to the city council to register our birth, the plan was to name me "Els", which is a fairly common first name here (no longer in fashion, though).

Reply: "Els is the name of a tree. It has to be Elisabeth"
Since my last name is a long one, my dad opted for a slightly shorter first name.

But now, you can name your child Duoduo?

Last time, we had Metis and Linda fighting for the honors. If only Linda was still around...

I'm a bit superstitious about it......opening a chat thread mid-GS tournament?
However, if nobody is willing to do it, I'll jump in. I'll just give other Rafa fans a bit of time to do it.


ETA: hmmm...it seems that nobody gives a shit.

Fine, nobody starts the new chat thread then. Have it your way.
