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.
ok it's a long story from CNN days
KFC-Ferrero. This because I often made the typo of JFC so tht became KFC
greasy-Rios. He has greasy hair
Blake-groovy hair or J.
Hewitt-Heweeeeee or Peeweeeee
Federer- Potato, nose like a potato
Oh tennischick I think Potato farmer's son is Lee the winner of Sydney International last January! :D And was soundly beaten by Agassi in AO!
ok,here's the one I use
Hewitt -- Heewee,TP (Toilet Pony),Twerp
Roddick -- Dick
Henman -- Hellmans
Rios -- Greasy
Kuerten -- Guga
Agassi -- Dre
Ferrero -- KFC
Paradorn -- Sricha
Federer -- Potato
Mantilla -- Nasty Felix
Gambill -- Ken Doll
Correjta -- Mr Moonball
Schalken -- DJ (Dutch Journeyman)
Blake -- Big Ass
Nalbandian -- Nal
Grosjean -- Big John
Santoro -- Gnome
El Ayanoui -- Ela
Novak-Cheery Jiri,CJ (Chech Journeyman)
Spadea-Journeyman (teh original)
and oh because his father is really a potato farmer, I think! There was an article about him in the forum somewhere! :bounce:
How could I forget about gnome!
should we be sharing all these nicks??
yes,we should be spreading the knowledge :)
but the OAF is sacred :D
warfreakbix: i should be spanked. hard! it was I who gave Lee that nickname and started that thread!
Ok this is a lot to update so i'll leave it be until tonite when more others have had their say.
Dina, Federer cannot be the Potato. that is solidly taken by Hewitt. sorry. find another name for his nose...:p
Federer is POTATO!!!!!!
and tennischick,sorry we've been first with the Potato ,back in teh cnn days
What does OAF mean? :confused:
plus we're just here temporarily
OAF means oaf
as in Safin is a big lumbering Oaf:D
Or your reaction when he plays the dropsho from 5 feet behind the baseline " Oh F......." : ))
