In Serbia everyone call her Liziki, even I have started calling her like that. Isn't that correct pronunciation?

Re: Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

Mónica Puig ancestors are from Castelló de la Plana (Spain). Puig is a typical Catalan name, and the pronounciation is like "pooch".



Don't know how they pronounce it in Puerto Rico...

Re: Which player's name is toughest for you to pronounce?

I can pronounce them, but this is of course the watered down, 'Merican, ESPN version of the "difficult" names.

Can someone explain to me why so many people tend to pronounce Petra's name like "Ki-vi-to-va"?

Don't know how they pronounce it in Puerto Rico...
They don't pronounce it in the Catalan way. More like: Pweeg (or perhaps Pu-eeg).

I have trouble with some Polish (not the ones we all know and love) and most Thai names.
