    Some of these I've seen on message boards, a couple I made up. This is all in good fun:D

    -Ana I-am-a-b*tch
    -Elena Demented
    -Novak Choke-a-b*tch (I call him that when he starts playing like crap)
    -Jelena Jock Itch
    -Weird Jelena Jankovic (that's what I call her!)
    -Justine Henin-Hard-*n (back when she was married)
    -Venus Envy Williams
    -Nicole Invite Us Ovah (my mom came up with that one)
    -Andy Raw-d*ck
    -Rafael No-duh
    -Anna Pournikova
    -Maria Shriekapova
    -Man-Woman Carillo (my sister's nickname for her)
    -Chucky (Martina Hingis)
    -Fiona (Kim Clijsters)

    Ooooh nice thread. I wonder which ones are what you made up though. Is it true that whenever Ana smacks a winner she pounds her chest and yells "Ima da b*tch!"? (actually might be preferable to that thing she does in real life.)

    I remember the mean British press nicknamed Monica Seles 'Moanica', referring to her grunt :cry:

    Somebody on Mauresmo's forum called Hingis Mrs. B***h

  13. Thats probably because at the AO 1999 Hingis said that she played a man when she played Mauresmo

    The funniest legitimate nickname I've heard in recent years is Juan Monaco's nickname imposed on him by his fellow countrymen . . . "Pico" ("Pico" means beak in Spanish).

    I asked an Argentine buddy of mine why they would call him such a strange name and he explained that it's because he's got such a big nose. Ouch!

    The 15-0 issue of Tennis Magazine had a whole host of food-related nicknames. Unfortunately I lost it.

    Most of those aren't really that funny. I've heard Berdych called Birdshit before and even though it's really nasty, it's also kind of funny.

    Toni Nadal-Uncle Foni, Tio Porky
    Andy M-the potty-mouthed Scot (PMS), Muzz Bunny (my favorite)

    I call Mary C Mary Snore-illo

    I like Birdman for Berdych, precisely because it's so stupid.

    "yeah he's called Birdman on tour"
    "really, how come? does he keep birds?"
    "no, but his first name is like, you know, bird."
    silence.
