don't know. Mostly names ending on -a are girls... but I don't know why they change their last name.

This is a question for TheBoiledEgg...

You might also remember Cyril Suk and Helena Sukova who were brother & sister and played doubles together.

yep you got it Becca <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

but not all names just get an A added on

take for example

Lina Krasnoroutskaya ......

her dad and little bro are Krasnoroutski

Suk/Sukova are Czech and they use Ova at end of the girls names , Daja Bedanova's dad , Jan Bedan.
