Players nicknames on this message board

Sorry I'm new here. I'm not familier with some of the nickanames you people have for some players. For example, who the hell is Alona? Who the heck is Makili? I know I'm ignorant. I would appreciate your help.

Alona isn't a nickname It's her real name --> Alona Bondarenko
I don't know makili, maybe you mean Makiri. That's Maria Kirilenko

Re: Players nicknames on this message board

OK.. my point is some people here call players too easy as if they were your friends. Keep some distance please.

Re: Players nicknames on this message board

Maria Sharapova = Masha
Daniela Hantuchova = Danka or Dani
Justine Henin = Juju
Amelie Mauresmo = Momo

I'm sure some of the posters here would have more to share.

(I hate the nickname "Makiri.")

What's wrong with that. It are just nicknames
And if you're a huge fan of a tennisplayer. Like i'm a huge fan of Michaella Krajicek. I don't see what the problem is of having a nickname for her. MISA
Like the players care about that!! The most don't even know.

You're from Japan right? I understand that in your culture, it's impolite to address people by their first or nickname when you do not have a close relationship with him. (Am I right? Please feel free to correct if not.)

However in the western culture it's fine to address people in that way. Plus, it's also more convenient to use in message boards.

Re: Players nicknames on this message board

Vee and Ree or Rena should be obvious
Justine iis Juju
As for vaidisova she is called everyname in the book, rivalled closely by easydrawpova/screamapova etc

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Yeah, I don't think the players care. I know Misa doesn't mind if her fans call her Misa. She calls herslef that so (Although I'm pretty sure Kirilenko doesn't c all her self "Makiri"). Alot of the "nicknames" are just dimiuitive versions in their own language of their names... Maria- Masha, Michaella-Misa (well ok it's Czech, but it's her background). And Lucie Safarova gets Lucka quite alot too.

Janky.
But most plyers have nicknames on here...
Agi - Agnes Szavay
Aga - Agnieszka Radwanska
Ula - Urszula Radwanska
Tati - Tatiana Golovin.

Most people aren't gonna write out the whole name on a message board.

If you want to - but no one is saying you have to.
