Stupid Nicknames

I've noticed on this forum how some posters use nicknames like Enna, Mashina, Mashiki, Juju and so on for their favourite players, anyone find this very annoying?. Why can't people just called Maria Maria, Elena Elena, Venus Venus and so on...
Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this, who knows!.

I never heard Mashina or Mashiki lol. But some of them like Masha is Maria real nick name as with Nastya being Anastasia.

Enna is not a nickname. It's just that two people on this board decided to call Justine like that, for unknown reasons.

I find 'Bepa' and 'Enna' very annoying. And also why do people call Mary Pierce 'Maam'

Well, it's an actual nickname, as opposed to most ways people call players around here.
