Players whose voices sound differently than you expected them to

I expected Caroline's voice to be much higher for some reason. When I heard her talk, I was like "woah". It made her seem a lot older. I also heard a small clip of Sorana Cirstea and her voice sounds higher than I expected it to. I also expected Chakvetadze's voice to be higher. Anyone else have any similar experiences?

Chakvetadze's voice is so awkward, I really don't like listening to her talk.

Re: Players whose voices sound differently than you expected them to

I always thought Vera Z's voice would match with her feline looks- light and airy. However, her voice is very deep. Still sounds good though

Anna K was the same. Her voice was hardly soprano

Agreed, Vera has a surprisingly beautiful voice --- nice accent and quite articulate in English as a second language. A pleasure to listen to her.
