Re: Nickname reference list...

will correct. plus i need to put in RonE's Rumpelstiltskin

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Nickname reference list...

The infamous "Glaudio is lucky" thread has given me an idea. Gaston Gaudio can be reffered to as 'The Glaudiator' for his great fighting abilities and his tenacious never-say-die attitude. In the FO final there was definitely that feel about him- like a gladiator being thrown into the arena to fight the lions, he fought his way back and came out on top. What do you think?

Re: Nickname reference list...

fine idea RonE, *imagines a match of The Glaudiator vs. Midget* (now i guess we have different ideas of who should be nick-named Midget)

Re: Nickname reference list...

why is Coria called Tramposo? are there any other nicknames for him?

Re: Nickname reference list...

No one has mentioned Guillermo "The Serpent" Coria, Ivan "The Crying Croat" Ljubicic, James "Fake" Blake and "Baby" David Nalbandian.

"In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed and they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, 500 years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

- Orson Welles

Re: Nickname reference list...

Doesn't anyone call Mark Philippoussis "Scud Mark" or something?

On hiatus, just because.

Re: Nickname reference list...

Fish and Blake (doubles partnership) = Flake (i learned that from the gamblers)
