Hehe, here's what I think:


Henrieta Nagyova
Tamarine Tanasugarn
Ai Sugiyama
Katarina Srebotnik
Ruxandra Dragomir Ilie
Rosanna Neffa-de los Rios

I get a kick out of these names.

Karen Fodera should not play in any Portuguese speaking country. Her surname will only excite the men.

I suppose she has a normal Belgian name, but I hope I never have to commentate a match with Debbrich Feys in my language.

Ding Ding is the best named player. Sound as a bell!
