Talking Nickname reference list...

for new users of the board. plus for myself. i just ran across a post by Dina and i had no clue who were the players she was referring to. who is KFC? who is Greasy? how did these nicknames come about?

so then i thought maybe we should develop a centralised list of all the nicknames. please update as new nicknames evolve and i'll keep editing this original reference list.

all in good humor folks. if you don't like a nickname given to your fave, relax, and think of a funny one for a rival...

i'll kick things off. please correct any of my errors and i'll go back and edit. for example, i'm not clear on who is the "Farmer" and who is the "Chicken" and whether they are one and the same.

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)
