Do you have nickames for tennis players

My mum and I (yes, my mum) have nicknames for players:

Daniella hantuchova~ we call her BANDAGE because of that little see-though dress she wore, which looked like a bandage there was so little of it.

Jennifer Capriati~ we call her HEFFER because she reminds us of one.

Tatiana Panova~ we call her MICHELIN MAN because of all muscle, which looks weird because of her lack of height.

Lindsay Davenport~ we call her lurch; you can guess why.

Do you have any nicknames???

Yeah I have a few nicknames with my mom..sometimes to make it easier for her cause she doesn't know their names.

Dokic - We call her Sneezy obviously cause of the sound she makes while hitting the ball

Hantuchova - We call her Legs..again for obvious reasons

Kournikova - We call her Hot and Humid..this has nothing to do with Anna herself..it's a long story

and also Hewitt - My mom calls him the boyfriend lol..she can never remember his name..so she always just asks me how 'the boyfriend' is doing

My Grandma has some nicknames too but they´re way too mean to post here... some people will hate me for them although they´re not meant to sound rude.

Nobody´s perfect ... but me.

Me and my mom used to call Conchita the banana (like chaquita bananas)

Some of the others maybe aren't so nice...

only Potato and Potatette, no need to explain who they are.

Oh, and Henman has always reminded me of this fop-haired public schoolboy I used to hate, so thats how I tend to refer to him

LOL at Cariosity's nicknames.

I've never had nicknames, but maybe I should try it.

I sometimes print a set of brackets for tennis tournaments and fill it in by pen as the tournament progresses, just for fun. It's irritating to write something like "Rosanna Neffa-de los Rios" or "Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario" or "Justine Henin-Hardenne" into a blank that's only a little over an inch wide (and I don't like abbreviating; I'm weird that way).

Just so my life will be easier, I find myself rooting against players with long names, and rooting for players like "Amy Frazier," "Anca Barna" and "Meilen Tu."

LOL@Cariosity's "Splits".


Queen V: Venus-she carries herself regally

SnappyCappy:Jennifer-when she's in a good mood her shots are
snappy, when she's in a bad mood she snaps at officials

Dum-chick: Jelena, for playing an insane schedule.

Demented One: Elena D-see above for Dokic

Rena the Screama: Serena-well either her shots are screaming or she
is with the all the "C;mons!"

Big D-(or big LD) avenport- For her hright and shots. I'd like one more
slam for Big D

Anna Pornikova:no explanation needed and you know who in mean.
She's a joy to watch in doubles.

Aussie Kim:Clijsters and Oz just go together.

JujuWaffle-Henin. She's still a waffle cause she chokes a lot.

Coetzer-bunny: Amanda runs like the energizer bunny and sure is as
cute as one
