What about Hrdicklova?

(I think she ended up changing to her married name)

And there's also a Mandiklova.

What's wrong with Hrdlickova and Mandlikova? Note how you misplaced the L.

Now wasn't there some player (might have been ATP) whose surname was Ho?

Because he though it as Hrdicklova which i am assuming he thought sounded like "dick lover" :rolleyes:

Regardless of her name, a very unfortunate match against Venus at Wimbledon 2004. And a very unfortunate career since. Maybe she needs IVF?

Same with Krasnoroutskaya, had Baby Blue Eyes :sad: :sad: not had her career (probably ended, after a brief '07 encore) by injuries. And I wonder if when "Bepa Junior" has an arguement in the lockerroom, the other player might say: "Listen, Douchebag". :lol:

And then there was that (dire) Rory McGrath joke about Daniela Hantuchova, which went something like:

"So I was sat at home, watching Hantuchova on TV, and then my han-tuch-ova..."

Ratchaya Chaichanachaicharn (Chi-chan-a-chai-charn) isn't really unfortunate...just a mouthful! Charming :)

Parichart Charoensukployphol :lol: I couldn't even begin to imagine some of our Australian News Reporters who have trouble with Karatancheva read out that name :lol:

I can call myself Doctor because I have a PhD in Computer Science. The only bits I meddle with are 0s and 1s. :)
