You are all welcome. However, I do fewer and fewer translations, as I feel that the knowledge of French is growing here.

Garia-Lopez is still there, so no first round -bye for Richard for the time being, which is better anyway. He doesn't need byes, he needs wins.

Re: The Clay Court Season- Road To Roland Garros! Casablanca (05-04-2010)

just heard that Andy Murray had been given and accepted a wild card into Monte Carlo
checking the lists , I see that Gasquet is last on the alternates list
have any of you heard whether he has been offered a wild card for the event

I am sure they are holding on to one just in case Federer wants in
but looks like they have 2 or 3 they can still give out

and - ps - thanks for all the translations
got a good laugh out of the WC - water closet vs wild card discussion the other day
for obvious reasons , the term WC is one of the few I remember from my limited use of the french language while I was in France
a WC is a good thing to be able to find
Way more useful than the " ou est le bibliotheque " phrase that I remember - I took so much french in high school and that phrase , along with je m'appelle ... is about all I remember
pathetic really
( and seriously , like I needed a library ? - ha - now had they said " discotheque" I might have paid more attention

Richard is invited in MC : http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...et-invite.html


Thank you Reggie

And that would be où est la bibliothèque which is indeed not that useful in a city unless you're a bookworm like Gilles

Re: The Clay Court Season- Road To Roland Garros! Casablanca (05-04-2010)

excellent news, and thanks !

as you can see - my french is weak - but the mystery of what word is considered masculine and which needs the feminine was one of the hardest concepts for me to remember
as no such distinction exists in english
and as I was no bookworm - none of my friends would have ever looked for me in the library , that 's for sure

now the WC - after a few beers - there , they might find me

I'm glad I'm not the only one I find genders in languages really hard to get my head around.

Great news about the wild card. Hope you get to watch him and you are his good luck charm Puschkin

I hope you'll get to see him are you going every day or just at the beginning ?

French isn't the worst when it comes to genders : in German you have masculine, feminine and neutral

I was taught French and German at school and for some reason always found German far easier. However for some reason I've retained far more French.
