Just wonder who invented this "Pete" thing because Sampras' real name IS Petros. Check it if you don't believe.:confused:

we must get to the bottom of this mystery, also important to find out who started calling andrew roddick "andy" and who started calling andrew murray "andy" and who started calling robert reynolds "bobby" and who started calling robert ginepri "robby" and who started calling ricardo gonzalez "pancho" and who started calling william tilden "bill," the list goes on and on, must be some kind of tennis-related conspiracy

really intriguing.

Samuel Warburg and Samuel Querrey, Alexander Kuznetsov, Zachary Fleishman are others victims of this conspiracy of USTA.

What's the name of G.D. Jones, from New Zealand? Such a mystery.

I wonder also if Tomas Zib and Robin Vik are not actually Tomas Zibnarek and Robin Vikvaporubnych, maybe the Czechs like to hyde their real surnames.

:unsure:

Willy Cañas, OK, Guillermo is the same as William and he is refered mainly as Guillermo, but why picking the English version? And why not Bill then?

Slava Dosedel, born Ctislav Dosedel, was he ashamed of his real name?

Robert and Michael Bryan, who do they want to fool?

we better stop with this story, it might be dangerous.
