I just notice it, I know that all the people and the rest of the players called him "Lucho" instead of "Luis", but looks funny to me when I see it, maybe they change Acasuso's profile to Chucho Acasuso instead of José and Gato Gaudio instead of Gastón :p

:secret:I know, I know... I know that it's the same thing as to called Andy Roddick instead of Andrew Roddick, but this spanish version sounds funny to me.

Isn't Lucho a short form of Luis for Latin America? Hmm... I hav a friend called Luis from Portugal and asked him if he's called Lucho and he said it's South American :)

"Gato" doesn't mean "Cat" in Spanish? Or is it also a shorter form of Gaston?

Anyway Chucho The Stoned this one would rule.

yes, Lucho is a short form of Luis, but I only said that seems funny to me when I saw it for the first time, but It's like that Fernando González will appear tomorrow like Feña González in his ATP profile :lol: ;)
and yeah... gato means "cat" in spanish as you said.
