i wonder if Marat speaks French? :confused: I mean he has an affinity for the place plus his friends with a lot of the french players like Di Pasquale, Grosjean, Escude and his coach. I'm sure he's picked up phrases over the years but i'm curious if he can actually speak it.

Well, he understands "merci beaucoup" (or he at least knows it announces the end of an interview :devil: ).

LOl girls! :lol: I was actually wondering too if he can speak/understand more French.

yeah! he can say "merci beaucoup" "oui" "bonjour"...and I read somewhere long time ago that Escude learned him some bad words.;)

I remember in RG 2002 against Ferrero...he said "la balle" and no "the ball"...and "filet! filet! filet!" instead of let.

I suppose that he understands: jeu, set et match Monsieur Safin! :banana:

i read somewhere that he can also speak some words in german :cool:

maratski
11-09-2004, 12:35 PM
I'm sure he also knows "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" :o

I think all players from time to time teach each other words, but they're probably so bad, that they don't need to share that with people ;)

Perhaps something like: Du bist ein schönes Mädchen" ;)

i'm wondering if he speaks some words in portuguese?! :confused: guess it's too hard to him, maybe "Muito obrigado" and "Oi" LOL!!! guga must had taught him some words LOL! ;)

I think that his German is limited to the standard Russian German dictionary. Namely : "Hitler caput".

LOL does anyone know of any other random languages he could speak?
