Portugese is lovely. It's absolutely the best language for singing. I used to think Italian was, but Portugese has it beat by a mile.

I would love to learn Arabic, but the writing intimidates me... ditto for Chinese but with Chinese the intonations also intimidate me.

Spanish I think is the language I should concentrate on learning because it has the most usefulness in my country.

Re: What language(s) would you like to study MOST?

I had the possibility to learn French at school but learned Spanish instead which I don´t regret. It´s also a nice language and it´s spoken in quite a lot of countries.

Who wants to play with my balls?

Mandarin Chinese, if I were a woman of leisure, that is I could dedicate myself 24/7 to do whatever I wanted for years & years -- that's what it takes to learn Chinese!

Saami and Slovak, but out of a more common language Portuguese.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
