Martina Hingis' birth name was Martinka Hingisova. Her Mum made it more Western European when they moved to Switzerland.

Well she changed it to 'Jennifer' when she was 14 or 15 ;)

And of course I assume you know Arantxa's "real name" (you know, she just retired, she's not dead yet! *LOL*)

Daja (pronounced "Diya") Bedanova's first name is Daniela. When she plays Angie, it'll be the War of the Diya's, as the last part of Widjaja is pronounced the same way!

Is Seles Hungarian? If so then I think it should be pronounced "shelesh" and not "selesh".

I'm pretty sure this is what I had seen before, Brian -- thanks!

Who in their right mind names a child after the Immaculate Conception? No wonder Conchi is Conchi! *LOL*

Seles is ethnic Hungarian, but born in what was then Yugoslavia. I have the idea that she was born in one of the breakaway republics, but I am not sure. Does anyone know this?

Monika was born in Vojvodina, a part of Serbia that had an autonomy in the SFRY (the other province like that was more known Kosovo). That part is next to Hungary and has an ethnic Hungarian minority.
