ATP player with coolest name?

Gosh, it disturbs me to see you Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in town as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why
No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's
For there's no man in town half as manly
Perfect, a pure paragon
You can ask any Tom, Dick, or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on
Who play cards like Gaston?
Who break hearts like Gaston?
Who's much more than the sum of his parts like Gaston?
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating
My, what a guy, that Gaston!
I needed encouragement
Thank you LeFou
Well, there's no one as easy to bolster as you
Too much?
Yep
No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston
In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston
When I hunt, I sneak up with my quiver
And beasts of the field say a prayer
First I carefully aimed for the liver
And I shot from behind
Is that fair?
I don't care
No one hits like Gaston
Matches wits like Gaston
In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston
I'm especially good at expectorating
Ten points for Gaston
When I was a lad, I ate four dozen eggs
Every morning to help me get large
And now that I'm grown, I eat five dozen eggs
So I'm roughly the size of a barge
Who has brains like Gaston
Entertains like Gaston!
Who can make up these endless refrains like Gaston
I use antlers in all of my decorating
Say it again
Who's the man among men?
Who's the super success?
Don't you know? can't you guess?
Ask his fans and his five hangers-on
There's just one guy in town, who's got all of it down
And his name's G-A-S-T
I believe there's another T
It just occurred to me that I'm illiterate
And I've never actually have to spell it out loud before
Gaston

Tennys Sandgren, the tennis player from Tennessee!
LOL I was having a field day (in a group chat) with this factoid during his AO match w/Fed.

In all (semi-)seriousness Tennys Sandgren and Anna Smashnova are hard to beat as tennis names. You could say Margaret Court is up there too, but the relative ubiquitousness of her surname brings it down a notch.

OTOH Kevin Anderson seems to be the blandest one I've come across. Reminds me of the not-so-facetious joke Martin Amis used to tell about Henman's given name.
 
Horacio Zeballos has an awesome name. He should be a GOAT contender with a name like that. Jannik Sinner is another one, hopefully he lives up to his badass name.

Players like Bjorn Borg were destined to be greats with names like that. Half of the greatness is in the name :cool:
Nobody beats Po-ti-to Sta-ra-ce

Radek Stepanek aka THE WORM ... is definitely the coolest name. So cool that a bevy of babes couldn't wait to hook up with him.

If he was half as talented a player on the court as he was off of it, he would have multiple grand slams and with cool nicknames such as...


Rad Attek..

Panek Attek..

Rad dek...

OG LIPS....
