Frankly Chakvetadze isn't even that tough a name to pronounce by tennis standards.

Frankly Chakvetadze isn't even that tough a name to pronounce by tennis standards.

That's true but for the dominant English-speaking media her last name isn't "visually pretty" and Americans in particular are bad at pronouncing anything remotely ethnic. :rolleyes: If Anna C was an actress, they would've made her change her name immediately. ;) By the way, I created this thread because I actually think Anna C is gorgeous. She moves about the court in a sexy way, too. :)

Australian commentators have the most trouble with her name. :P

Chakvetadze is hard to pronounce?
If so, an intriguing premise.

Oh, and for those who voted Anna's more into tennis than being a glamour girl, you are WRONG. She's a media-savvy gal.

I think her name is easy compared to something like Kittipong Wachiramanowong or Peerakiet Siriluthaiwattana

Anna Chakova maybe?

its not hard. You just say it how it's spelt. Even someone like Henin or Golovin's nameis hard to pronounce because theres so many ways to pronounce it. e.g Henin - En-a, En-een, Hen-een... Golovin - Golo-veen, Golo-van, Golo-vin and so on.

It's easy to pronounce going by steps. But I can understand why Americans have trouble pronouncing it, after all English is the most common language nowadays so they're too used to their own language.
