Djokovic = "Nole"(Nickname) why?
 
How did this name come to be?

The only reference I could find was that he wrote "Vamos" & "Nole" on his shoes during the SF at the French vs. Nadal, in what appeared to be mockery.

Does anyone have more information?

lol @ "nole." Sounds stupid.

Rymes with A-Hole, but he changes the "A" for a "N", because of his name, Nolan. Basilcally, it means he's an ***.

I'm sorry, I have kind've defended Djokovic in another thread, but YOU my good man are the Djokovic troll. And learn to use full words, not texting lingo. Makes my head hurt (and I'm 16).

Actually Im quite sure 'Nole' is pronounced Nolay...in which case no it does not rhyme with A-Hole.

Quit being a jerk.

Well, I know it sounds weird to you. I don't know how to explain this better, it's a language thing. This shorts are common in countries of ex-Yugoslavia (Serbia, Croatia...).

It is similar to Ljubo, which is Ljubicic's surname in short.

SiLvErX 08-12-2007 02:06 PM

Nole is a shorter and sweeter version of NOVAK.. its like you are patronizing to Novak.. I'm from Serbia..My name is Bojan (boyan) and if you do the same thing with my name it would be "BOKI"(bokee)

NOLE is pronounced no(short o)lle nolle (short e also)

ANd for that guy who said NOle is an ***..YOu must be having an IQ of my current posts number 23 so if you come and read this post again in a year or two maybe your IQ will be enough to live a post here

Funniest thing I have heard! You are known as the "Novak troll" around here. LOL! You just took something someone said about you and used it on a thread about Novak's nickname. Funny stuff dude! :p
