      Actually Liang Jingkun is nicknamed "the fattie".

      Ma Lin was nicknamed "maestro", "defense killer" or simply "the genius".

      Most of your nicknames are youtube tribute titles or have been invented by Adam Bobrow

      In half of the names on your list, I've never heard the players referred to as such.

      As I said in the title, post any nicknames that are either yours or the more commonly ones or just make new ones, there's no rule to it in this thread.

      Yes some nicknames were taken off youtube videos but I think they are pretty fitting.

      I think I heard Liang Jingkun being referred as a terminator, because not only he slaughtered all the players in the Chinese mock up Olympics 2020 but also in the Chinese National Championships 2018, and he does have a face and has a playing style in a way that of a terminator imo. I try not to use belittling nicknames which "the fattie" can be construed as.

      Wasn't Timo Boll known at the time for like one of the very few players that was a threat to the Chinese players? What nickname could be attributed to him?

      Probably because of his lack of forehand power and weak mental strength at his early time.

      Because he was a step below the "big brothers" (ZJK, ML, XX) of the team during his rise, small and skinny stature, weak but plays fast and close like girls usually do, and is somewhat feminine in appearance.
