French Tournament Websites No English Version?

Maybe I'm wrong but I've been noticing that when I get on all the international websites for tennis tournaments around the world I can always click on the English language version of the website but when it comes to French sites, they don't offer it. Am I correct? What's the deal?

Re: French Tournament Websites No English Version?

Some do, like Roland Garros.

Smaller ones may not. No particular reason why they would, though.

Especially French ones - they like their language and you find a sentiment sometimes that they are loathe to accept English as the de facto language of world business and sport, etc, and refuse to offer an English translation.

Which is their choice. I don't mind, I can read French pretty good.

I think RG is the only site that cares to have an English version because it's a grand slam otherwise I have never seen Englished offered on any other French tennis tournament sites.

Pourquoi pas apprendre le français?

Which is kind of ironic, since they are the only French tournament that doesn't call the score in English.

There are no French versions for American tournaments websites (<-typically French reaction).
