Would they change the names if it's obscene?

    On TV and on the stadium there's a big box with player's names and scores on it. Usually it's the player's last name in alphabetical order like Lee/Yoo or Boe/Mog or Fu/Zhang.

    But what if someone named Thomas Blow partner with Steve Jobs. It would be Blow/Jobs and clearly funny. But I'm just wondering if they have a rule for these type of situations. Do they just go Jobs/Blow instead or use their first name?

    For most of the regulations, players are identified by player ID. In the laws (umpiring announcements and such), the full name is used, so it's not a problem for the rules, just the press.

    Likely, the players or federation would also be aware of the problem, and register in a suitable way. But if all else fails, the TV people can change it to whatever they want.

    Personally, I think this type of obscenity is indicative of a foul mind of the complainer more than anything else.

    Be worse if Zhao Fuk partnered Tian Yu.
