    This spoiler rule. It should not apply for Grand Slam matches. Like c'mon its a Grand Slam...we want to talk about the events and that too in this section lol. I understand for smaller tournaments...but everyone watches Slams live and if not..they wont come on here before watching it taped I think.

    There is a section for discussing an ongoing match and results thereof. Its as easy to click that link as to click this one, besides which you would be doing it in the right place. Discussion go on there all the time for match results after a match has been played all the time.

    The rule of not giving match results in this section is important for those who view tape delayed matches because they are in another time zone. That seems the primary reason and is only fair. Some people don't want to have their viewing spoiled by those who insist on posting in the wrong area.

    Btw, your posting is a bit funny because if you wish to make a request to admin there is a section of the forum for that too. This is the general pro player discussion area, (top of screen says its), TW Questions/Comments go here: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/forumdisplay.php?f=25

    For there to be even a modicum of order on a forum of this size, there has to be clear cut rules and locations for certain type of postings, or else it would be extremely hard to find certain areas or topics, and it would make the admins jobs a lot harder.

    I understand the spoilers rule, but if you don't want to find out the result of a tennis match, then you shouldn't be on a tennis forum.

    Especially during Grand Slams and especially if you're a regular here. Everyone knows that there's spoilers in the General Pro Players forum!!

    I don't see why it's so hard to keep talk about Grand Slam events that are happening in the proper forum. Is it really bugging someone that they can't talk about the French Open's live scores in the Racquets section?

    There's a forum where people can tee off on their favourite subject relating to the current Tennis Event. All you have to do is click into that forum. That way those people who DON'T want to find out what happened can still participate on the forum (in Racquets, Strings, or whatever) and not have to be bombarded with the score.

    I'm not sure what the big deal is about keeping live score talk in the proper forum.
