He is also affectionately known by tennis fans as 'Pics' after an infamous forum thread posted in September 2007, presumably the result of broken English...
While watching Australian Open QF against Almagro the commentators were referring to Ferrer as having a 'vulture like mentality' when it came to rescuing himself in difficult situations. personally I think the cat or Tiger are better nicknames than Pics. But then again he is the Pics of the current bunch of tennis players, ha ha ha.
Both his wiki page and the commentators were spot on, good to see the truth is surfacing more and more.
