list of most commonly used nicknames please...

...I am mostly new here and as in the WTAworld they have sprouted obscure and silly names for players which made me confused and have no idea who they were talking about. I would be happy if you could give me lists of the most commonly used nicknames , and maybe why they are called that?
Thanks Good reps for the first 10 too

Agustin Calleri is usually the one referred to as "El Gordo" in the Argentine press, though he has lost a lot of weight recently so it's really not fair to call him that anymore.

Nicolas Kiefer is usually called Kiwi here on MTF but I haven't a clue why.
Nicolas Massu is "El Vampiro".

did Nadal give you permission to out him on this board?

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: list of most commonly used nicknames please...

Fernando González on MTF is Gonzo
In Chile we called Feña (diminutive for Fernando), "El bombardero de La Reina" (La Reina's bomber) or "Mano de piedra" (Stone hand)

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:
