All-Name Team at Wimbledon: You Pick It

The name's the thing at Wimbledon.
Rarely do we find a list of players from as diverse a set of countries as we do in international tennis. Take Wimbledon (please) as an example. Here are some of the players involved as we speak (admittedly, most are Eastern Eruope or old Soviet Union where consonants rule and vowels have little place):

Men: Kyrgios, Gasquet, Tsonga, Raonic, Goffin, Tomic, Pouille, Berdych, Vesely, Nishikori, Cilic, Querrey, Mahut, Vesely, Berdych, Zverey, Kyrogios, Gasquet, Bautista Agut, Pouille;

Women: Kuznetsova, Safarova, Shvedova, Makarova, Vesnina, Radwanska, Cibulkova, Pavlyuchenkova, Strycova, Siniakova, Bacsinszky, Boserup.

You can work up a good all-name team from that, I'd suppose.
