Nicknames that players have for each other

Im sure there have been threads about fan nicknames for players, but what about nicknames players have amongst themselves. at RG 2004, I heard one player refer to Jonas Bjorkman as JB. Do fans call Bjorkman JB? or is this just an interplayer thing? what other nicknames do players have for each other?

Re: Nicknames that players have for each other

Well, I think it's safe to say that Hewitt and Roddick don't refer to each other as 'Duck' and 'Potato' respectively

Re: Nicknames that players have for each other

I am not sure if in these answers these are names that players call each other. I heard several players refer to Bjorkman as JB. I am really curious what nicknames players have for each other. has anyone else heard another player refer to Jonas as JB? Can I call Jonas by his nickname if i see him at Bercy?

Fingers crossed Juan Balcells isnt around
I'm gonna sound a bit Juanqui-Lover ish when I say this... but when Jonas is around I don't pay much attention to anyone else. Only three other guys I havent noticed anyone call him JB... In the yahoo group we sometimes refer to him as that when we get lazy . I just call him "hey, Jonas!"

wow, no one could get away with calling anyone Chinky in the States . it is not PC, not appropriate here
but I've noticed such differences in general between the Great Britain and its colony
