Becker was known as B.B. Socrates.
Any Other names worth mentioning?
hard to beat "Djoker" as a perfect nick
I am totally "disheveled" by this post!
Jurgen Tuna Melzer
Good list btw
^^lol @ melzer. thx
Nadal = Ralph
I have to use nicknames too, because otherwise I can't remember their names. I can't think of how many times I've forgotten Mats Wilander's name, including a moment ago when I was writing this post. I don't think BG is making fun of the players, I think he's doing this for memory's sake.
I think you mean Fedman haha. Sloane Ranger was hilarious though.
Florian "gumby" Mayer.
For those who don't follow fashion, Sloane Rangers are like the preppies of the UK, except a little older.
Lol he actually uses my Sloane nickname??? :), cool, I suggested that to him a while ago #humblebrag

@Jonezy07@bgtennisnation I call her 'Sloane Ranger' :)
Ha ha ha!!!! Those are pretty clever. Although if I remember correctly baseball player Sammy Sosa was called "Slammin' Sammy" back when he played.
Stan the Man Musial , Joltin' Joe Di Maagio, etc etc but they were baseball players.
The only tennis player who never got called anything but his name, was Marat Safin. And sometimes Sampras got called by his first name but that's not a nickname.
BG is cool. All in good fun.
Nice collection, haha
I have heard him say Doggie for Dolgopolov, not the dog
This week, Brad was calling Dolgo "the dog" (in the comments I heard.)
he's so junior high... this gilbert fellow
