Red face Nicknames of your favourite WTA players which you dislike / hate / disapprove???

Kim Clijsters - Kimmy (sounds like "Give Me" or "Gimme")
Martina Hingis - Chucky (she's prettier than that doll of horror, and it's a HE, not SHE)
Maria Sharapova - Big Masha (she's tall and slim, not BIG. Should have called her "Tall Masha" and Kirilenko as "Short Masha)

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Demented , because Elena is an intelligent girl and I think the nickname is offensive

No - "Masha" is "Maria" in Russian. It has nothing to do with her last name.

Masha is a dimunitive from Maria. It has nothing to do with Sharapova.

I don't think so...but it's probably not altogether rare a name for fat cats. My friends' cat's actually named "Jellyroll."
