I understand the sentiment, JHM, but what is LTA not doing, to leave players in this position?

PS: I do like the idea though.

I think it's worldwide isn't it? The wonderfully named Tornado Ali Black is American.

Could be cool if mixed doubles was played by the big players more often...

It's no good. Everyone will just want to crowdfund the usual suspects.

Unfortunately all these headlines are exactly what Tornado and Hurricane's mother wanted when she chose their names:

"I have a marketing degree . . . and I knew I needed to do something for them to stand out, and we thought it was cute," Gayal said. "[Tornado didn't like her name] a few years ago. Kids tease you. But now they understand it's marketing and it's very big to say a storm blew through the US Open.

http://espn.go.com/espnw/athletes-life/article/9683950/espnw-tornado-black-shows-remarkable-game-go-memorable-name-junior-girls-us-open-tennis-tournament

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the mother's behaviour, but I'm sure I could never have chosen my own children's name for marketing purposes.
