Why do most American players sound like this???

Why do Lindsay and Jennifer sound so european, more than Monica and Navratilova.......it's really troubling.......Jen came from Nyc and now lives in Florida, how could she suddenly develop a foreign accent. It's not like Madonna who lived most of the time in europe.......

Jenny's parents are both European so possibly that might have influenced her accent somehow, don't know about Lindsay I thought she sounded quite American. I personally think Navratilova and Seles both still have a very mixed accent.

BTW Madonna has not lived most of her life in Europe, only since her Marriage to Guy Ritchie, and still she spends time in LA. I think she puts her British accent on a bit although she defin itely sounds American still to a British person like me.

They speak as if English is not their first language, and this is not an insult but the pronounciation of some of their words seems like it's difficult and they can't handle english like it's their native tongue.

Listen to alex or Meghan and even Pierce who is not american, and they sound more american than the americans.

mary pierce is as american as you can be. she lived there all her life maybe with exception of a few years when she was a teenager (and I am not even sure about that)

LMAO, they both sound American. they don't even remotely sound european. all americans sound american unless oyu have a different background and still have that accent. and basically those americans who have europena accents have lived in europe in their childhood. i have no clue what you're saying because both lindsay and jennifer sound extremely american to me

Lindsay and Jen are very American, Martina aint so bad anymore. Monica still has her Serbian accent though.

I noticed Dokic sounds very French now.

I'd say Monica's accent is 75% American. She sounds more American than Jen! She has the whiney drawl mastered. Also... She makes sense when she speaks these days.... you know... Jen.. you know um... sometimes...errr.... doesn't... you know....

No matter what they speak like I love 'em all.

at this thread, Lindsay and Jen don't sound European at all, Lindsay even more so than Jen, she is very well spoken.
