LOL! Is this a quiz?

Mr. Gonzalez, El Bombardero de la Reina, is also known as "La Mano de Piedra" - the Stone Hand.

M

Also, how could we forget "Deliciano"? :-)

Dee

Hot Sauce is Fernando "Tabasco" Verdasco, Dee.

Hi Jenny!

How about "Scud" AKA "The Poo".

@Jenny: Thanks Jenny! Wow I didn't remember that such a thread already existed on the old TP site! - I'll compile all the nicknames to one list (atp players without wta). :-)

RafaFan

Thanks Lobbo for your contributions! Could you please give me the numbers where I have to put your names??? :-) [Scud, AKA, Rocket, Muscles] Thank you!

Growltiger

Wasn't Vilas called "The Bull of the Pampas" or something like that?
Chris Everett was "Ice Dolly". (Cougar would be more apt now with her on air admission she cries when Fed loses and is a near stalker).

Jenny

Juan Martin del Potro - Delpo, the Tower of Tandil

Lobbo

I didn't think I was supposed to limit myself to alternative nicknames for 1 - 26. Have I misunderstood the rules of this game?

Brilliant work, RafaFan.

I know 'pics' has been attributed to Ferru, but it was never a Nick, that came about through the Mens Tennis Forum because of fans posting pics! Sorry, I should have mentioned this before.

LOL The Matador of Spin!

M

I have the shirts with the graphics on them. You can't make this stuff up, LOL.
