Re: Nickname reference list...

Federer has been called "The Mighty Fed" by Boddo and Wertheim lately, and it seems to spread on the web...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Just curious: I see Hewitt was called the Weasel when this thread was started, when did people begin to call Coria that way? After Hamburg?

Re: Nickname reference list...

I didn't see Nadal's nicknames in your list.

One irritating thing is how some announcers pronounce "Rafa" as "Hafa" thinking that a Spanish "R" sounds like an "H". It doesn't.

Some how it sounds endearing to call Roger "Potato". I don't think his nose is that bad though. I've also heard him refered to as "Lion King".

How is Stepanek's nickname, "Tom Cruise".

Roger Forever !

Yep Cliff Drysdale is overemphasizing his pseudo-Spanish accent in a weird way... "RRRafa Nadal"

Re: Nickname reference list...

What's up with the sudden revival of 2 yr old threads on GM?

I notice that almost all of the people that contributed in the first 10 pages of the thread (registered 2002/3) are no longer users at MTF.

What happened? Was there a plague? A meteor? Did they move on to the golf forums ?

Re: Nickname reference list...

updated as requested. see you guys in 2007 when this thread gets bumped again

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)

How about some nicknames…

Starting form the top…
The way Federer wins so often and so convincingly I figure “The Terminator” would work.

With Nadal’s speed and whip-like forehand I’m thinking “The Cobra” for him.

Although Nalbandian is frequently referred to as “Fat Dave” I think he’s a lot more brawny and solid than he is fat, so I’ll go with “The Tank” for David.

Anyone else?
