Re: Players whose names are never spoken correctly.

Henin

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Players whose names are never spoken correctly.

When you say a person's name in Chinese, you address them by surname first and then their first name, so commentators are totally right calling her Li Na. At least I think so, anyway.

We have to get NA-MUG on this.

ugh.
