Best Player Nicknames

Sorry if it has been done before , but a lot of people are starting up old topics lately.

This thread is to discuss who has the best nicknames out of all the tennis players.

I'll start:

I really like Makiri(Maria Kirilenko). Another good one is Nosy(Steffi Graf) and my favorite is Dominance(Serena Williams)

What is your favorite?

Cara Black is called "Snooky".

Martina Navratilova is "Pluto".

Shaun Stafford = "Stick"

Nana Miyagi = "7"

Glynis Coles = "Glissen"

Billie Jean King = "The Old Lady"

Kohde-Kilsch and Sukova were "the twin towers"

Some players went by their nicknames instead of their first names, such as:

Jane "Peaches" Bartkowicz

Janet "Happy" Ho

Mareen "Peanut" Louie

Anna Maria "Sandra" Cecchini

I had a thread a while back which gave a list of nicknames, and had you try to guess the player. I'll have to see if I can dig up the link.
