    That is a term I've seen bandied about, but I don't know what it means. The others, like Nadovic, are more obvious than this. Something to do with Nadal?

    Nah, it's Djokovic. That's one of Clarky21's creations. Usually, the origins are pretty clear, but I'm at a loss as to where this one came from.

    To quote myself:

    Taking Rolaids with Adderall can lead to deletrious over-stimulating side effects in the latter resulting from a faster metabolic rate thus ensuring a more intense but less prolonged "high". Clarky (who coined the term for Novak) knows this because of her addiction to "(N)adderall", thus her aversion to "Rolaids/Tums" and the other various brands of antacids Novak represents.

    Recently,he called off a press conference because his coach said he had "heartburn". This is where the nickname came from because that has to be one of the silliest reasons I have ever heard of for calling off a 15 minute press conference. :lol:

    Okay, thanks! I was wondering where that one came from because I knew from where all the others were derived.

    By the time you find out what rolaids is, Cl would have moved on to some other name.

    Anyway, thanks, even i have been wondering.

    "Magneto" completely floored me. I still have no idea what that one was supposed to mean.

    Magneto is short for magnetotherapy. It's some of the quackery that Dr.Igor sold to Rolaids,and Rolaids bought hook,line,and sinker.

    Why Possum, Tums, Cvac and Magneto? I need a lesson in creative thinking.

    You can say a lot of things about Clarky, but one thing you have to give her is that she's quite creative.

    Acting as though he is about to die(playing dead is referred to as "playing possum"),only to suddenly rejuvenate and sprint around the court as if nothing was ever wrong= Possum

    The "heartburn" saga= Tums

    Rolaids infamous "egg" machine that helps produce extra red blood cells in the body= Cvac

    And I already explained the Magneto nickname in a post above.

    Rolaids is one of the many pet names that Clarky21 has given Novak Djokovic. The other petnames that I recall are Cvac, Possum, Magneto and Djesus.

    ...Because Djokovic is so hard to type...

    Thanks for the explanations, anyway. Clarky is the source of the TW's greatest predictions also, apparently. Is possum in reference to the painful AO2012 semifinal?

    That, and the 2011 US Open final, where Djokovic looked injured and "done in" at the end of the third set yet came through 6-1 in the fourth set. Cvac is a reference to that egg machine that supposedly boosts the red blood cell count in a person's blood.

    it was definitely worth the change from djesus, well thought out...many of the best laid plans are made without much planning, like the hoover damn or the wright brothers

    magneto is short for lots of free time not rubbing crosses, keeping appointments with psychiatrists, or consulting psychics

    just said, the time that could be spent examining tennis matches, expounding on the wonder and history of the game and we get a tenth-grade david letterman top ten list writer...i suppose it's the best he/she could do, but still sad

    OK, I'll try... Djesus is Jesus Christ. Clracky is just being silly playing with words. the Cvac thing is related to that egg machine Novak used ... you need to do some googling.

    Stalker45 is not being serious. He just seems to be fixating on me which is why I just ignore him,and don't respond to his psychotic ramblings. Seriously,the guy has a major screw loose somewhere in his head.
