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.

Fluently ? None of them... :tape:
Quite good ? Some of them
Badly ? Most of them
Not at all ? Ughh...

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:.

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.
