Re: Rogi's Family

Yes, cos he studied tennis in the French part of Switzerland and had to learn... fast! But Rogi is talented w languages, one of his many talents! Pretty cool! The organizers in Montreal last year absolutely adored Rogi cos he spoke French there -- on his birthday they presented him w a cake oncourt after his QF v. Mirnyi and they all sang him a birthday song! He was v touched!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Rogi's Family

well his mom is from south africa so I think english is like another native language for him. He speaks english excellent anyway. He has some of the german accent though or do I just imagine it?!

Re: Rogi's Family

yes, Rogi does have a bit of an accent but it's not that strong. I was amazed at his Eng the first time I heard him speak! He definitely has a talent/flare/natural ability for languages. I want Rogi to speak Italian and Spanish too some day -- I'm sure he w not have a problem learning them!
