How many languages does Richard speak?

I was just wondering if Richard speaks Spanish because he played doubles with David Ferrer in Montreal and during the changeovers the two seemed to be talking a lot to each other. I couldn't hear what language they were speaking but I assume it wasn't English since neither of them speaks it very well.

I was sitting right behind David and Richie, and I *think* it was French. I don't know for sure though

Re: How many languages does Richard speak?

I better whatever they were speaking was really cute!

I wonder how those two got together to play doubles in the first place. Such an interesting combination which I don't mind at all.

Richard Gasquet, Andy Roddick, y Rafael Nadal

Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo, Mario Ancic, Bob and Mike Bryan, David Ferrer, Marat Safin, Andrew Murray, Edouard Roger-Vasselin, Julien Benneateau, Nicolas Mahut, Eric Chvojka y Feliciano Lopez

Re: How many languages does Richard speak?

I think that he just speaks French and a little English. In Montréal he was speaking with the Spanish players in only so I guess that means that he doesn't speak Spanish.. But maybe he is just too shy to speak it!

Re: How many languages does Richard speak?

actually despite the fact that his english is not perfect it's certainly good enough to have a conversation in coz he spoke to me pretty well in it and he definately knows when someone is complimenting him in it.

Good Luck to my boys
