I was about to start a thread about this. Worst chice ever. And I'm not a Serena fan at all, just a bad choice since she's a terrible umpire.

I really thought they'd finally give a final to Asderaki, shes a fine referee. Or at least give it to Lang since she's British

I just got confused because I heard Alves say Zvonareva (as it's spelt) and then the correct way as tenn_ace pointed out.

Vozhniatski.

Is the zh pronounced like a "z" or more like a "j" or ...?

Didn't Caro specifically say she wanted the "W" sound at the start?

Kind of like a soft "z" or chinese j. Think Zheng Jie.

Nope, it's just the world doesn't revolve around Serena Williams so the tournament referee doesn't research every trivial incident an umpire and player might have ever been involved in.
