GAIANEH MIKAELIAN!!!

I cant even say her middle name! Krasnaroutskaya and Barabanshikova are hard at first but you soon get the hand of it.

I have absolutely no problems saying Ctvrtnickova (writing it on the other hand ... ;)).

Harkleroad breaks my tongue every time. None of the other names mantioned does that.

I guess it depends on what your mother tongue is ...

I guess you are right, because Harkleroad is not a bit hard for me...

I voted for Mikaelian (mostly for her *middle* name though) BUT..

how do you pronounce "MATEVZIC" -- I was saying "mah-TEV-zic" until I saw it was really supposed to be something like "MAT-uh-vich" --help here please!!!

Well the second one is completely wrong ...

Let me try: Mah - TEH V - zh i ch

(it's really written Matevžič, not Matevzic - the two letters in the back are pronounced conpletely different as z and c - similar as in Dokic (Dokić really).
