Re: Tereza Mrdeza cheering thread

I remember watching Tereza play a $10K in Dubrovnik a few years ago. She was soooooooo bad

At the time I thought she would never be top 500.

to me.

All so true. Given how little natural talent she seems to have for the game, Tereza has got to be one of the most overachieving players out there

Re: Tereza Mrdeza cheering thread

As a brazilian guy who knows NOTHING about croatian language, let me ask:

Would someone explain me how I should pronouce Mrdeza?

I speak Spanish, which is similar to Portuguese, but there's no word in Spanish with that combination of letters.

That said, it's really not as difficult as it looks. Each letter (m, r, d) is pronounced pretty much like in Spanish. The sounds are strung together, which is the tricky part, since Spanish/Portuguese don't put consonants together like that.

By the way, the z is actually a ž, which is pronounced like the zh in Doctor Zhivago

Can anyone help Trigo out further? Is there an online pronunciator?

It's a bit tricky to explain cause

a) I don't speak Portuguese
b) the closest I can go is Spanish, and as mentioned earlier, they don't string consonants

But I'll try to explain a bit differently than the earlier poster, and hopefully come closer for you to get it right.

For starters I wouldn't bother with a string of consonants, but instead bring your attention to the middle and end of the surname. In Mrdeza the letters in boldface are pronounced exactly the same way you guys would pronounce "de Janeiro" in Portuguese, but obviously without the pause between the words. The first two letters (Mr) are pronounced the way they would be in Spanish if I could find an example of this consonant combo, so let's say like in their "mar" minus the vowel. Oh, and in her surname the stress is on the "r", not on the "e" as many foreigners would probably assume.

Hope this helps

Re: Tereza Mrdeza cheering thread

P. S. It's a real bummer we won't get streaming today, cause it might be a very interesting match. Obviously Tereza will again be the underdog, but Niculescu's form is far from where it once was, as well as her ranking. Still, she started the year quite well and still hasnn't lost to anyone ranked lower than #51, not to mention she has some nice wins under her belt already this season. Good luck Tere!

I'll try

Just pronounce it like you pronounce english word 'murder' ... 'murd' + eZha Ž is (as networthy already mentioned) pronounced like Zh in Dr Zhivago

Re: Tereza Mrdeza cheering thread

I'm kind of glad that this wasn't streamed - 6:1, 6:1. The loss was expected, but a masacre was not. Still another nice week behind Tereza and one more bump up for her in the rankings is coming up.

First of all, thanks for the attention!

I think I got the Ž sound.
But the real problem is the no-vowel combo in the begginig!
"mar" minus the vowel does not make ANY sense to my latin-speaking mind!!!
We need vowels to make sounds, guys!!!

Anyway, I'll stick with the sound of "murder" as suggested.
Hope it's close enough... :S

Bad, bad loss today but still an excellent week for Tereza.

Looking forward to her new CH ranking on Monday. Onward and upward!
