Sorry if it has been done before :p, but a lot of people are starting up old topics lately.

This thread is to discuss who has the best nicknames out of all the tennis players.

I'll start:

I really like Makiri(Maria Kirilenko). Another good one is Nosy(Steffi Graf) and my favorite is Dominance(Serena Williams) ;)

What is your favorite?

Cara Black is called "Snooky".

Martina Navratilova is "Pluto".

Shaun Stafford = "Stick"

Nana Miyagi = "7"

Glynis Coles = "Glissen"

Billie Jean King = "The Old Lady"

Kohde-Kilsch and Sukova were "the twin towers"

Some players went by their nicknames instead of their first names, such as:

Jane "Peaches" Bartkowicz

Janet "Happy" Ho

Mareen "Peanut" Louie

Anna Maria "Sandra" Cecchini

I had a thread a while back which gave a list of nicknames, and had you try to guess the player. I'll have to see if I can dig up the link.

Anna Maria "Sandra" Cecchini.
that's kinda unusual... coming up with a different name... maybe she didn't like anna maria?

The lil' assassian - Amanda COetzer has always been my favorite. I know Makiri is a nickname for Maria Kirilenko but I have never actually heard anybody call her that in person. I've been around a good deal the the past two summers and everyone just calls her Masha
