BAH-toh-lee

Emphasis on the first syllabul, not the second as loads of commentators do.

Re: Butter-Lee or Bar-Toll-Lee?

If it's Italian, the second syllable should be stressed, correct?

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Kim (4), Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie
