thanks for your answer.

Ah, now I know where I have heard this term from. I just did a Wikipedia search, and "Stan the Man" is the nickname of the great baseball player Stan Musial.

I know some people who are great fans of St. Louis Cardinals, and being with them, I have heard much of Stan Musial ...

the term "Stan the Man"

Stan is often called "Stan the Man", but where did this term come from?

I know I am one of the first who used this term in this forum, but I didn't create the term, and it appears that some other people used this term at the same time without looking at each other's posts. I used it, because I have heard this term before, and thought it suits to Stan, when he is playing good. I know someone whose nickname is also Stan, and he uses sort of "Stan the man" in his e-mail address. And, he is not related to tennis, and I doubt he knows who Stanislas Wawrinka is. And, he's got his e-mail address way longer than Stanislas has been around in ATP.

Does anyone have a clue??
