Well, how do you pronounce it?
Wiki gives something like HAHN-too-khoh-vah and I'm not sure what that "-khoh-" means.
Is it K(ilo) or H(otel)?
I thought it should be CH(arlie).
Even worse, all tv-comentators here, in Denmark, pronounce Hantuchova as Hanch(arlie)uk(ilo)ova (???)
What about Safarova?
(For those who don't know, these are female tennis players :wink: )

Can you read IPA? If so, look at wiki. I've just filled in the correct pronunciation there.

CH is pronounced like the German ch in Bach.

BTW the surname Hantuch means "das Handtuch" (Hand + Tuch) = towel
