Why would he swear in English?
Sounds like a misunderstanding to me
I have no idea if those words were said in English or in French and translated by the reporter. The original tweet was from Tom Tebbutt
, a well respected Canadian tennis writer and he speaks French as well. I really doubt there's any reason he would attempt to tell a lie. If you read his blog or articles regularly, you'd know he's not that kind of a person who loves to spread controversial reports.
