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 :o

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 :p

LOL

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. :p

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."

Way way back on the "old" board (The Corel board), we had a few nickames for some players:

Conchita: Suga (short for sugar... I don't have the whole story on this)
Chanda: Sweetness
Patty: Medusa- for her out-of-control hair; nothing mean intended.

I've called Amanda "Cute-zer".

When Hingis wore that black and white outfit that looked like a Gateway box, we called it her "Moo-Moo" dress.
