Default Teams You Want to See, Based on Nickname

Ok, I've been thinking about starting this thread for a while, and the off season seems like a good time to get it started. What are some teams that you'd like to see get together, based solely on the nickname they could have? I'll start with a couple I'd like to see. (Apologies if any of these don't translate to different languages/cultures, they're mostly based on puns and phrases from American English.)

Eric Butorac + Max Mirnyi = Booty & The Beast
Jack Sock + Eric Butorac = Socks & Boots
Sergiy Stakhovsky + Igor Sijsling = The Steak & the Sizzle
Brian Baker + Jamie Baker = The Fabulous Baker Boys
Leander Paes + Daniele Bracciali = Peas & Broccoli
Alejandro Falla + Carsten Ball = Falla Ball! (Sounds like "Fire Ball")
Bjorn Phau + Alexander Popp = The Sound Effects
Josselin Ouanna + Frank Dancevic = I Wanna Dance with Somebody

Mixed Doubles Bonus Round:
Mikhail Kukushkin + Coco Vandeweghe = Kuku for Coco Puffs
Dudi Sela + Coco Vandeweghe = SelaWeghe (Sail Away, Sail Away)
Maxime Authom + Bethanie Mattek-Sands = AuthoMattek (Automatic)

Ok, I could literally do this all day, but does anyone else have any? Am I the only one who thinks about this stuff?

Carsten Ball should have a brother to play with. Team could just be "Balls"

That gives me a good idea: Tennys Sandgren and Carsten Ball "Tennys Ball".

Yes, I don't know if they are known like this everywhere, but in Spain we call Marc and Marcel "the M&M's"

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Certainly not the pros...but there are two ladies in our USTA/rec league who sometimes play together. One's last name is "Sherlock"...the other "Holmes". I call 'em "The Detective Squad." The Holmes gal has a nasty FH...the other is the weak link.
