- Jules = Julia Goerges
- Bepa = Vera Zvonereva (this one baffles me because Bepa is Russian for Vera, but Bepa is no shorter than Vera)
- Domi = Dominica Cibulkova
- Dani = Daniella Hantukova
- Agi = Agnieska Radwanska
- Vika = Victoria Azaranka
- Ivey = Iveta Benesova
- Petko = Andrea Petkovic
- Caro = Caroline Wozniaki
- Ula = Urszula Radwanska
- Sabs = Sabine Lisiki
- Tsveti = Tsvetana Pironkova

I've been following this thread for too long!
Good list. I'd like to add:

Angi = Angelique Kerber
Babs/i = Barbara Schett
Chaky = Anna Chakvetadze
Genie = Eugenie Bouchard
JJ = Jelena Jankovic
Kvitty = Petra Kvitova
Marti = Martina Hingis
Sori = Sorana Cristea
Sree= Serena Williams
Tati = Tatiana Golovin

Somehow Bepa sounds prettier than Vera
