I bet you can't spell correctly more than one, maybe two at the most, the names of the top 10 women tennis players in the world!

The days of names like Chris Evert, Billie Jean King and Virginia Wade are long gone. Now it takes a pronunciation guide and you might even have to buy a few vowels to come close.

Checking in at #4 right now is the one name I'd be able to spell and that is Serena Williams. Maybe I'd be okay with spelling Angelique Kerber the #1 ranked player, so there, two out of 10.

Then the challenge begins: at #2 Simona Halep, #3 Karolina Pliskova, #5 Elina Svitolina, #6 Dominika Cibulkova, #7 Caroline Wozniacki, #8 Johanna Konta (okay maybe her) #9 Svetlana Kuznetsova and #10 Angieszka Radwanska.

I can see now why female tennis players don't wear their names across the back of their tennis outfits. 18th ranked Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova would have to wear long sleeves with her name running from one elbow, across her shoulders to the other elbow!

Lets hear if for 14th ranked Madison Keys of the USA. now that's a name I can spell, here's hoping she jumps quickly into the top 10.
