Which Players have Little Marks Above the Letters in their Names?

Looking at the OOP for Prague, for the first time I saw all the marks that some players have above the letters in their names. It's kind of like finding out a little secret that the player has kept hidden. .


I suppose only people with those marks in their keyboards can post the names here, but please do post more. And if you can give the name of the marks it would be good to know.

Here are some of the ones listed.

Ondrášková, Zuzana
Strýcová, Barbora
Voráčová, Renata
Husárová, Janette
Šafářová, Lucie (4 marks )
Rybáriková, Magdalena
Navrátilová, Martina
Blahotová, Olga
Paštiková, Michaela
Hradecká, Lucie
Uhlířová, Vladimíra
Fraňková, Nikola
Vaňková, Kateřina

They are mostly "ova"s ... and they seem to be mostly Czechs and a Slovakian... what else?

I thought so but didn't want to misuse it, decided to go with simple.

Maja Matevžič

Arantxa Sánchez Vicario
