It was more "Putain! Là..."
"Putain" (literally "whore") is a very common swearword. It's bad, so don't use it at school, but players (and not only players) say that all the time.
"là" was referring to the scheduling of his match against Fed. It meant something like "then... (it will be very tough!)".
So just say "Putain!" next time you miss a shot, forget about the "là".
My funniest Richie moment was his interviews in Indian Wells when he used a couple of neo-Dada expressions out of the blue, "to play against a cactus", etc. It didn't make any sense, it was awesome.
And his accent, of course.
They taught us a French swear word in high school. I think it was, "Zut!!"
which is the equivalent to Damn or darn right??
That's not a bad word.
Putain means whore?? Sort of like puta in Spanish, which I thought meant bitch. Rafa yelled that that in a video once. But a similar phrase, "Que putada". I thought that meant, "Fucked up". How can a similar word have so many different meanings in two languages?
