Brad Gilbert calling Sharapova "Shaza"

What do you all think about this?

He also say "Chewdinelli" instead of "Kyudinelli" for Chiudinelli.

Re: Brad Gilbert calling Sharapova "Shaza"

Brad cannot pronounce names that are not Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, and Andy Roddick. You just have to accept that from the start. Shaza, OK, whatever. But I don't understand this soft CH for Chiudinelli. I've heard some other announcer pronounce it that way. Maybe the other person (not Brad, he cannot pronounce names) is giving it a French pronunciation, as Chiudinelli is a Swissy. I pronounce in the Italian manner. He's a good looking guy, that Chiudinelli.

So we have Brad giving Sharapova a nickname and that other annoying Aussie know-it-all giving Wozniacki the nickname Sunshine (Woz Woz Woz, is less annoying to me), who next?

Re: Brad Gilbert calling Sharapova "Shaza"

Chiudinelli sounds like an italian surname, so it should be Kiudinelli, right?

I would think so, but maybe Swiss pronunciation of Italian names is different?

Yeah, Mats is also very opinionated and cannot pronounce the names of players at all.
