Re: C'MON! VAMOS! ALLEZ! What else do players yell?
I thought I heard a couple of "Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis" in Nalbandian's TMC win over Ljubicic, when he got the double break in the second set and then when he finished off the match, but they could have just been general squeals of delight. I also recall what sounded like a "Vilayyyyy!!!" (phonetic spelling) when he finished off Federer with a crosscourt return winner at the US Open back in 2003.
Volandri and Sanguinetti are obviously good for a few forzas now and then as well.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
