big bad janko



Thanks to Alisa for this photo of Janko Tipsarevic‘s shoes from sponsor Fila, and to malimeda for the clarification: Jankela means(ish) “Big Bad Janko” and is what the tatted tennis player is called by family and friends.

Other Fila athletes with nicknames on their shoes? Agnes “Agi” Szavay, Marin “Chila” Cilic, and Rainer “Shaker” Schuettler.

  1. Does “Chila” mean anything?

  2. Not sure. But I assume it has something to do with his last name….

  3. Jankela sounds like Jankilla.

    So that pretty make sense to me ;)

  4. “Jankela” …nice nickname. “Chila” doesn’t mean anything, it’s just about his last name:
    Cilic – Chila
