Which players do you think have the coolest names?



Reveal your inner thoughts and your language bias!

Serena Williams - a beautiful name.

Venus Williams - sounds like a great warrior! Also, just sounds cool. And also sounds like a body part.

Elena Dementieva - cool because "dement" is in there

Flavia Pennetta - I just think it sounds pretty but with a dose of aggressiveness and pasta sauce.

Sania Mirza - Short and Simple. Sania is a beautiful name to describe a beautiful person. Mirza is a sharp, harsh name to describe her harrowing forehand! Put it together, and depending on how you say it, you can get pleasant or commanding!

Vera Dushevina - cool until she changed the spelling. :/

Kaia Kanepi - it's just really catchy.

Camille Pin - cute name for a cute girl!

Ashley Harkleroad - she definitely looks like an ashley, but that last name sounds as delicious as an ice cream! The kind of name that is hard to forget.

Tamarine Tanasugarn - she's Thai, so the name is naturally a little long. But because commentators rarely have a problem saying it, that means it must be a COOL name. T_T.

Akgul Amanmuradova - I seem to be picking a lot of double initials here, but this one must also be picked because the heavy sounding name is fitting for someone with a dominating presence. And how many A's are in this name?!?

Jelena Jankovic - yeh.

Alexandra Stevenson - Alexandra is the type of name for diva's, and this girl certainly is one.

Meilen Tu - because whenever she wins in tu sets, you invoke her name.

Yaroslava Shvedova - yah wah shwah vah shwah vah vah.

Kumiko Iijima - kawaii!!!

Vania King - she's... asian?

Francesca Schiavone - It's so pretty it just rolls off your tongue. And how can you RESIST calling her franny?!?

Eleni Daniilidou - I already feel like i'm on mykonos, listening to the daniilidous singing in the wind.

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta Crawford McHale Franny Zarina Sloane
Lepchenko Min Garbiñe

Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov
Sock F. Lopez Isner Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga

Most players have catchy names actually

Ashley Harkleroad is a beatiful name

Caroline Wozniacki (especially when pronounced as Caroleene Vozniaashhi)

Re: Which players do you think have the coolest names?

Agnieszka Radwanska just sounds kickass.

Vaidisova has a nice, evil ring to it..I think. And no, I'm not associating it with the person that holds it. Nicole, don't marry Radek

I love Safarova, it sounds...swift.

Re: Which players do you think have the coolest names?

Virginie Razzano, Katerina Srebotnik, all flashy, elegant names with a little bit of spice. Nadia is a beautiful name, but Petrova ruins it IMO.

Lindsay Davenport sounds powerful, like a storm.

Hingis sounds cool but it would've been so much better as Hingissova!
