    All the top players have to have a good nickname. Rafa, Raging Bull, Federer Express, Federer the Predator, A-Rod, The Joker, Gonzo, Gonzolito, etc.

    Berdych is now in the elite of ATP so he needs a good nickname. I will officially give him one, free of charge, notarized, here it is...

    T-Berd

    what ya think? :)

    Muzza, Delpo, Kolya, Tobasco...hmm. looks like Cilic needs one as well, so does Tsonga. and Soderling.

    Gonzolito is one of his nicknames, for sure. he said it in a biofile interview which can be read at 10sballs.com

    Rios, just because you haven't heard a nickname for him doesn't mean he doesn't have one. And most of those names i've never heard of, you just made them up.

    Another pathetic, useless thread from you. Stop trying soooo hard.

    Players don't need nicknames, they were given their real names for a reason, nicknames sound so tacky.

    and t-berd? seriously? how unoriginal.

    ^^Way to overreact. Dont be such a drama queen.

    I dont know about TBerd but something like Big Bird might be cool.

    LOL at some of the fury provoked by such a silly harmless thread.

    Berd-itch is good!

    Remember Rafter had the nickname Bird Turd for that white spot of hair he had on the top of his head. lol

    Yeah upon thinking about it all night last night, T-berd isn't gonna fly. pun intended. I'm trying so hard OD.

    op

    most nicknames you mentioned are not their real nicknames.. most player have a nn prior to being famous...

    Djokovic is not the joker.. his nn is NOLE

    Davydenko is Kolya

    Delpo is the La Torre de Tandil

    ...

    see where i'm getting...

    Gonzolito?????? lamest nn ever...

    Querrey's is Q-Ball actually

    Rafter was skunky but also Bird Turd too.

    True Gonzo is Fena and El Bambardier but also Gonzolito too.


    Djokovic's main one is Nole but also Joker too.

    this is an iimportant duscussion.

    The unfortunate truth is, 'Tomas the chicken heart' is most suited for Berdych. I hope he gains courage one day.

    Perhaps he will meet someone that can do this, a coach, a mentor, or...

    Someone sounds upset. Ask someone for a hug. Then get over whatever beef you have with the OP. Cool thread, and I think T-Berd is a great nickname.
