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 :)

I better whatever they were speaking was really cute! :hearts:

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.

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!

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.

I mean, I guess I can understand why Lopez would deserve that at times. But Robredo and Ferrer??!!! NO WAY, they are total sweeties :worship:
Robredo is so polite and so nice to his fans, and Ferrer is one of Richard's buds!

Oh, I slot between Atenea and Eowyn, I graduated high school in 2000. Looking back, I didn't really like high school either. At the time, I loved it.

I'm 23 in a few weeks. I'm currently overseas seeing relatives I've not seen in about 3 years - and also people who seem to know me but I have no idea who they are. They're constantly asking how old I am, grr! The thing is in Taiwan, they add 2 years onto your actual age - why? I have no idea... now, having to add 2 years onto your normal age makes you feel old! lol
