Cuz I have nothing else to do. :rolleyes:

I'm the only one in my house who can say "Guillermo" SO everyone is always making up stuff.

My mom: "I'll just call him Willy" :rolleyes:

My Bro: "I'll just call him Givemo" :rolleyes:

My sis: "Gu-...er..I'll just call him Coria" :haha: At least she tried!

But anyway sometimes I call him Billy or Jay :shrug: Yeah weird I know.

"Guille" is pronounced "Ghee-jay"....hence "Jay".

Alisa

Well my friends are not intrested in tennis and get mad at me when I start about it again, it was terrible when I was just back from Rosmalen 2 weeks ago and I was in a Guillermo-mood :p My friends really were :rolleyes: at me all the time 'Not that Guillermo-guy again, we know you saw him, we know you like me. But SHUT UP' :p

I pronounce his name like Gijermo. Or I just call him Guille. Mostly Guille, because then they know who I mean. When I said Coria to my dad he went like 'They don't play soccer this year, it's not in Europe!'...
I was shocked. I talked about Coria and Tennis and not about Korea and soccer!
At least he knows who I meant now :rolleyes:

how do you post "sound files" on this thread?

i got 2 prononciations of the Guillermo Coria, and i need you guys to tell me which one is right, ok? ;)

vamos_guille
07-01-2004, 07:52 AM
I say his name with the good prononciation, the spanish, but it's easier coz I'm french and spanish and french are both latin language. For the english-speaking people, I say : Guee yer m Coria ( ll=y in spanish)

Jazzy
07-01-2004, 08:09 AM
that's how i pronounce - after i heard it off the tele by some guy who speaks most of the european languages

gina_
07-01-2004, 08:58 AM
Eeek. I'm not sure if I pronounce it correctly.

Ghee-Jay-Mo...

Enlighten me!

My friends just stick to Coria because it's easily to pronounce and I say Guille to myself all the time cuz it sounds intimate. I happen to adore his middle name too! Seb <3

Micca
07-01-2004, 09:26 AM
"Guille" is pronounced "Ghee-jay"....hence "Jay".

I just prenounce it a Gillie :p But I'm dutch so that's different :p HOW do you say it?? :confused: ;)

Micca
07-01-2004, 09:30 AM
I usually call him Guillermo, most of my friends don't even know who I'm talking about when I say Coria :p

When I first called his Guillermo MY friends didn't even know who I was talking about, not even beginning about Guille :P WHO!?! They say immediatly :p But at first I called him Coria, and now in the threads I call him Guille, because Coria seems so 'far away' if you know what I mean ;) But we can make up NEW nicknames for Guille :D
You guys with me??

Washa Koroleva
07-01-2004, 12:32 PM
I once talked about him to some friends and called him Coria. They said 'We're fed up with geography, Olga, please'.
Then I stopped talking and only had to laugh.
People whould listen before they start to understand something :devil:

But SHUT UP' :p
my friends too! makes me mad cause I always listen to them, even when i'm not interested in the topic and they don't bother having the patience to listen to me when I talk about Coria and all them other guys

I say his name with the good prononciation, the spanish, but it's easier coz I'm french and spanish and french are both latin language. For the english-speaking people, I say : Guee yer m Coria ( ll=y in spanish)
oh! yay!! i'm saying it right then :D

Micca
07-01-2004, 12:53 PM
My friends are fed up with me talking about Guille too, Safin-Coria :p;) Sooo stupid! I watch like all his games and they just like...Ow he lost; SO WHAT!?!! Meanwhile my heart is broken ;) And no one understands me :( BUT YOU DO!!! :D'So we've got the same problem :p;)

Alisa
07-01-2004, 02:13 PM
i DO have this problem too!!! so it's already the three of us!!)) ppl usually roll their eyes when i just beggin saying the word "tennis"... so this forum is a great releaf... huh... )
in russia ppl pronounce Guillermo - like "Gil' yermo"... and there it sounds rather easy to pronounce... maybe because it's not right ;) and guys, not to have any more misunderstandings, how do u all pronounce guille?)

kandykane, u wanted to post sound files. u can do it just like with the pic! i'm eager to listen it!)

NO NO NO NO NO!!!!! :hug: I used to say it like that. Someone from Argentina told me that was wrong. *sighs* I know about "ll=y" BUT that doesn't seem to aply to his name. I tried to tell my brother that but then he got frustrated and now he just call's him Givemo.

My friends are fed up with me talking about Guille too, Safin-Coria Sooo stupid! I watch like all his games and they just like...Ow he lost; SO WHAT!?!! Meanwhile my heart is broken And no one understands me BUT YOU DO!!! 'So we've got the same problem

Me too!!!! My mom is always like "what's wrong with you?" and I say "Coria lost today" (I don't say Guille cuz she won't know who I'm talking about). And she's like "Oh please :rolleyes: You can't let that get you down" and I say "Yes I can. I'm a hardcore fan of Coria" and she's like "Pssh, I couldn't get upset like that" and I say "That's cuz you're not a hardcore fan of anybody." :haha: My mom acts like a teenager sometimes. But anyway, no one understands how I feel...except my brother.

But we can make up NEW nicknames for Guille
You guys with me??

Yes!!! :bounce: My bro...GRR! His name is Stone ok? Stone calls him "Master" :haha: Crazy, most of the time I just call him Mago but I have other things like Rubberband Man or Kid. I always call him Kid so that's my fav nickname :)

Ok listen: The most accurate way I can describe how to pronounce his name is "Ghee-j-air-mo". *sighs* I hope that helps! I know it took me a while to get it right.

Hey! Legolas said that when she was at the vs. Clement match at Ordina, Guille was frustrated with himself and shouted his name! Maybe we should ask HER how he pronounced it!

No he has FEDERER next...he can do it. He destroyed Mayer yesterday.

07-01-2004, 10:38 PM
I'm happy I've just discovered that I could pronounce guille's name correcly, I didn't know because I don't speak spanish and sometimes I can't read spanish words correctly.
"seb" is a nice name. I like "sebastian" because my cousin is called "sebastiEn", but I think he has never touch a tennis raquet during all his life :lol:

07-01-2004, 11:45 PM
During the French Open, one of the field interviewers was sitting in front of Guille's dad and said his dad kept yelling "Gee Zhay" in his ear. That's a "hard" G as in Goat and "Zhay" would rhyme with "play" only with a soft Z sound. Did that make sense? US commentators typically call him "Gee Zher mo" ... I guess the " ll " in Argentine spanish takes on the "Zh" sound as opposed to the Mexican/Spanis "ll " that takes on the "y" sound.

|-Safin_Coria-|
07-01-2004, 11:54 PM

Micca
07-02-2004, 11:45 AM
Nooo! Roddick must defeat Ancic! I saw the whole game against Sjeng Schalken! I thought he was gonna lose BIG TIME!! But there were 2 (!) tiebreaks!! Unfortunatly Schalken lost them both, but it was soooo close! Very good game! :D :yeah: GO SCHALKEN!!

LubiG
07-02-2004, 09:21 PM

Is your friends name SebastiAn? or SebastiEn? Speaking of SebastiEn...Grosjean...nevermind off topic...
Yeah, the first one, Sebastian! I don't know how you prenounce it, but I know how I do it in Dutch and in Englisch, but I bet you can't prenounce my real name either :p :rolleyes: = Mieke, but I chose Micca, cuz' that easier for you guys to prenounce (although you type here ;))

Micca
07-03-2004, 05:26 PM
Roddick won! :D When it was 5-4 in the third set I really thought Roddick would lose that set, but he gained in on Ancic :D Great match! Now it's Federer vs. Roddick, a fight between the 2 best in the world :p I vote for Roddick! Heey! I'm gonna start a thread about that!

Ow and GG, here in the Netherlands we prenounce your name as it should be: Saara, I can't explane how you should prenounce my name..How would you guys prenounce it?? (Sorry, it's :topic: )

gina_
07-04-2004, 12:31 AM
I felt bad for Serena! She was being so gracious.

But anyway, Federer and Roddick is a pretty exciting match up! I want to see Federer deal with Roddick's serves.

Jazzy
07-04-2004, 06:43 AM
yeh, i want to see federer win!

yeh, serena looked a bit disapointed, but she handled the moment well - i wouldn't be able to smile at the cameras if i was in her shoes!

I don't get you :p hahaha

awww man! don't u understand... :confused:
when Federer won last year's wimby he got a cow called Juliette. so, if he could defend his trophy this year, maybe he'll get another cow and Juliette will have a friend...
does that make sense??? :confused:
i hope u'll understand what i'm trying to say... ;)

i like Andy's humor though :lol:

Micca
07-12-2004, 03:09 PM
