Which of the French tennis players speak English?

Hey,
I was kind of influenced my Michelle's PM and kind of influenced by my friend's e-mail... and it's all about the challenger next week in Wrocław. We'll be having quite a few guests from France:
Thierry Ascione
Jean - Rene Lisnard (whoops.... Monogasque!)
Marc Gicquel
Gilles Simon
Nicolas Mahut
Antony Dupuis

and very likely Julien Benneteau.

So who of them speaks English? Who are the others that speak English? I know Gael speaks nice English but feels ashamed of it, and so does Flo Serra :lol:

At least I've spoken with Thierry Ascione a quite long discussion in English and there were no problems for me to understand him or vice versa. :D

Gilles speaks some English, but he seems pretty unsure about it.

None. I agree. :o (The French women speak better English :lol: )

Seb, Paulo. The two of them spent/spend some time in the US. :)

Richard ("I am very happy.... He's a great player" X 1000000 :tape: ), Gael. :o :rolls:

I think all of them speak a little English at least. :scratch:

Richard and Gael took two Australian girls (who happened to be skanks that went to my school) out for dinner during AO. So...i would presume they can both speak English. :rolleyes:

oh and I must tell you :drink: makes all Frenchies speak English fluently - at least enough to express what they want :rolleyes:

And apart from irony, Gael speaks English quite alright! At press conferences in Sopot he was confident by won matches and his English was enjoyable :yeah:.

Richard ("I am very happy.... He's a great player" X 1000000 :tape: ),
Interview - next morning after the best match of Wrocław's chall. history (Mahut def. Przysiężny 6-7 7-6 6-4.

Nathaliia: What can you tell me about that match...?
Nico: You have a very talented player!
(...)
Nathaliia: And what do you think about today's match?
Nico: Oh, he's a great player....

Meanwhile he shared some thoughts and answered different questions, but let's not lose the general idea.

If they were both skanks, then i doubt much speaking (in any language) went on :p

I know for a FACT that Richard and Gael took the two blondes back to their hotel and then out for dinner. Apparently nothing happened... Was hot gossip at school, I hear, though.

Were you in the hotel room then Esther? But seriously I did see Gael with some young woman and there really doesn't need too much communication needed.

Back on the subject Llodra speaks it quite well as does di Pasquale.

Oh. Yeah. What a pity they went all unsuccessful at our challenger. Pictures can be included if I ever decide to scan them.

As about Gael, he was walking around with a blonde girl in Sopot, too. She was Polish, quite pretty. But she came up to him and started a chat in French and Gael was delighted. I think she left after Wednesday.
