Re: Fearless Leader Mr Disney Welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP
When players shout in their own language, they don't get penalized as long as they translate for the benefit of the audience, who thereby get free lessons in obscenities. This will increase not only audience entertainment, but also participation, because once audience members learn these new words, they can start yelling back.
Example 1: Berdych swears in Czech, translates, Madrid audience now equipped to cuss him out in his own language every time he hits a winner.
Example 2: Safin plays well, then starts to choke, and fans who are now fluent from previous matches yell at him in Russian.

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion
