Correct Andrea's surname is Petković or Petkovic?
On official site and WTA profile is Petkovic, but transcript from Serbian (Андреа Петковић) indicates on Petković. :confused:

Correct in Serbo-Croatian (when written in latin scripture) it is Petković. However, in Germany, the accents are rarely used...

I'm always surprised when immigrants don't use their accents here. We're not allergic to them like the Americans or Brits. We even use them ourselves in names like René. :shrug: Very odd.

well, custom configured german keyboards support ´ or ` with vowels only (é, á, ò,...), so you'd have to use a more complex workaround, which might be a reason why they are usually skipped...
