Perhaps Connor if you said the Craftsman we might agree with you. A Craftsman is special with lots of skills and expert in his craft which our Andy is.

The reason why some people dislike one nickname and use the other one is very simple.   Smugfed describes the person, The Tradesman doesn't.    
well put iluvandy.  I think [and howl me down if I'm wrong] I started the 'smugfed' nickname as a way of summing up the characteristic many of us so loathe about him.  I find the 'tradesman' very irritating because as others have said it implies the pedestrian to me.  And like others I would prefer 'craftsman' if we have to have anything.  But I accept that prod himself sees it as complimentary and has the right to use it himself.  But prod I just wish you wouldn't use it quite so much because it clearly irritates a number of us.   pray

Most of us think we are unbiased objective tennis analysts.   In my unbiased objective opinion Smugfed is a brilliant nickname.

In my "unbiased objective opinion" the name "the Tradesman" is neither witty or amusing or even descriptive. It makes Andy seem pedestrian and ordinary and a bit like a grocer.

Bloody hell, don't know why such fuss is being made over a nickname.

If people are going to get this worked up over it I'll just leave the forum.

Come on Connor I am sure you meant no disrespect towards Andy but if anything he is a Craftsman at the least and as BBH said Federer deserves his nickname. He is Smug and shows little respect to his fellow players and hates being beaten by what he considers lower ranked players.

I think you mean Joe. I'm Connor. Prodigy is Joe.

This thing about Federer you speak of, they are lower ranked players in reality and everyone hates to lose, even Andy.
