Talking Doubles Teams Nicknames!

During the Sydney tournament, some of us came up with some nicknames for some of the well-known doubles teams. The ones I remember are:

Thin and Thinner (Justine and Meghann)

Vain and Vainer (guess! )

Short and Shorter (Coetzer/McNeil)

Tall and Taller (Bovina/Stevenson)

and here's my new one this week:

BUSTY and BUSTIER! (Dokic/Tulyaganova)

Anybody got any more good ones?

That's good Janie. I thought you had written
RUSTY AND RUSTIER.
Which also would have been good for jelena/iri this week


Greenhitop used to cope with great names back at CBS.. I think he's still around here somewhere.

here's another one...
Old and Older (Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario/Martina Navratilova)

and Janie.. my guess is that "vain and vainer" is Anna and Martina. Am I right? Am I right???? LOL

Thumbs up

Yes, you are right, Vanity, and it wasn't ME who came up with that one, either!

LOL @ Old and Older and Rusty and Rustier ! Though Busty and Bustier are into the semifinals, so I guess at least in doubles, they are not all that Rusty right now!

Yep, I also hope Greenhitop (Now known as GREENOUT) will weigh in!

Lol!

What about Grumpy and Grumpier for Lis & Ren?

They always look so miserable on court! Has anyone seen Rennae smile?

LOL!

I love Lisa and Rennae! I could not think of any nickname for them! And yes, Rennae smiles a LOT, but I guess their ONCOURT deameanor earns them your nickname!

Good luck in Tokyo, Grumpy and Grumpier ! (though now we have no nickname left for Jelena and Conchita when THEY start to play again! )

Wink Doubles teams nicknames

I like the older and oldest for ASV and Navratilova..how about Mutt and Jeff...for ASV and Hantuchova!! Some of these doubles partners hop around from player to player..they are hard to pin down

Janie - you may have a point. Grumpy and Grumpier does also suit Jelena & Conchita very well.

Hmmm. Will put my thinking cap on and try to come up with more.
