Re: what about....

I read an interview with an umpire not long ago (can't remember who), and it seems that they have to speak English and enough of the local language to umpire (scores, basic phrases etc). A lot of them do seem to be at least bi-lingual though.

Re: what about....

Lahyani, the moroccan swede. I assume he was raised bilingual, speaks good english and cause of his origin he might also speak a good word in french.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION
