btw, Puig's name is pronounced here at the start and it's obviously given as "Pooig" like I suspected unless my ears defy me. And the guy is definitely a native speaker

Yes, but the surname Puig is not of castilian origin, it is catalan, so the correct pronunciation would be the catalan one --> "Pooch", not the spanish one he's using. Doesn't matter though, I bet everyone calls her Pooig.

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

What always confuses me is where to put the emphasis with -ova names. Sometimes you emphasis the OVA, sometimes not. Does anyone know why this is?

You should say:
- "Karolina Voo-o-darchak" for the first (no emphasis at the begenning, and rolling the 'R' of course)
- "Barbara Sobashkee-evich" for the second (don't know how to transcribe in English the middle 'kie' in this name, it's like a "kee-ay" but rather quick, without emphasis on it). Basically, Polish "sz" and "cz" must be pronounced "sh" and "ch" respectively.

Yes, that's true. This name is quite special as "oin" is a typical French sound... If you know how to say the number "1" in French, then you can imagine that "Coin" is something like "Koo-1" but quicker.

Lucie Safarova- I don't think I have ever said her name correctly lol.

Jovanovski-sounds easy enough but I feel like I'm doing it wrong.

Too many to say. I probably get most of them wrong. But Noppawan Lertcheewakarn is definitely right up there

There is no rule, the emphasis depends on the melodics of the name, I guess

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

A lot of people are saying Lertcheewakarn and Wongteanchai, but really isn't it just Lert-chee-wa-karn and Wong-tean-chai?
