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) :eek:

Anybody got any more good ones? :angel:

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

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 ;)

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

LOL @ Old and Older :D and Rusty and Rustier :D! 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! :cool:

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 :cool: and Grumpier :cool:! (though now we have no nickname left for Jelena :) and Conchita :) when THEY start to play again! ;) )

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.

Yeah, we need a name for Jelena/Conchi:




I think the BUSTY and BUSTIER name suits jelena/Iroda:
