Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

Not a big fan of Coin/Larriere. I think it looks funny when I pronounce it with French accent


Same applies for Mayr.

Re: Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

No problem with the French because we pronounce the "rr" the same way, but I guess it should be hard for english speakers specially...

Jankovic | Goerges | Petkovic | Safarova | Hsieh | Tsurenko
Azarenka | Mitu | Voegele | Beck | Muguruza | Cibulkova
Koehler | Mladenovic | Garcia | Robson | Cepelova | Duval
Babos | Ormaechea | Jaksic | Gasparyan | Soylu
Allgurin | Kontaveit | Zacarias | Pigossi | Haddad Maia | Abduraimova
Konjuh | Bencic | Komardina | Haas | Jorovic | Galfi | Stollar

Re: Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

Depends on your foreign language skills. I always get goosebumps when I hear Australians or Americans pronounce Petrova something like Petroooowa

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

Alla Kudryavtseva has always stumped me. It's that random v that gets me!

By the way, the opening post has really confused me. How are you supposed to pronounce Julie Coin, because it seems very simple to me!

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Have trouble with: Su-Wei Hsieh, Noppawan Lertcheewakarn
Also I feel like some of the French names are harder for me to pronounce, I just feel like they sound odd coming out of my mouth.
