The names in the poll were chosen based on pretty crappy results. If you disagree with these names, choose other and tell us who you voted for :D

Kirilenko :bigcry:
Lichowcewa :sad:
Pietrowa
Czakwetadze & Myskina (injured)

Well I have to say Makiri is really badly slumping :sad:

Question:

Why do you write all Russian players' names in Polish, but don't do that with Iwanowycz? :p

Question:

Why do you write all Russian players' names in Polish, but don't do that with Iwanowycz? :pHow many times did you ask about Russian names? 20? :lol: :tape:
Btw It'd be Iwanowić... but definitely not Iwanowycz :yawn:

Not twenty. Maybe three. But you never give a logical answer. Like now, you do not respond to the question.

A different poster from Poland said it would be Iwanowycz on MTF :) But still, Iwanowić is different from Ivanovic.

But Russian names become Czakwetadze :rolleyes: :retard: You are a racist :D :lol:

Actually, Czakwetadze is not a Georgian name. Chakvetadze is.

Makes names Polish is retarded enough as it is, but applying it to only Russian (and Georgian :retard: :tape: :o) names makes it even more retaraded.

This is an English-language forum. If I were to start writing all names in Dutch, it would make no sense either :shrug: Koesnetsova. Dementjeva. Goebaksie.

Kuzniecowa does not look like Kuznetsova.

Dexter is not stupid. He knows the English names. It can't be that it is easier for him.

Plus, I don't see any other Poles do it, so why do you refer to 'us'?

Dexter
Aug 23rd, 2006, 12:08 PM
I know, but she is still a Russian player :ras:

Stop avoiding the question :DIf I'm going to explain sthg I do it once. If you have 'no I don't take' attitude and we all know that you love arguing it's too bad for you :D

Case closed for me.

I voted Dechy but you can make a strong case for Kirilenko, Petrova, Groenefeld, Myskina, Bartoli, and Likhovtseva.

Natarajasana
Aug 23rd, 2006, 04:18 PM
I would say Medina Garrigues but I can understand why Likhovtseva has the most votes (for now).

sfselesfan
Aug 23rd, 2006, 04:18 PM
I think Myskina is, because she is injured. She's basically admited to being weak in that she's thinking about not playing. She lost in New Haven to the Lucky Loser. I hate to say it but she has to have my vote compared to the other healthy players.

petrova, likhovtseva, medina garrigues and dechy.

MrSerenaWilliams
Aug 23rd, 2006, 06:11 PM
I say Petrova...only because weakness is relative, and for her to be losing the way she is to the players that she's been losing to...that makes her the weakest to me
