Indeed MO was great today, but I was a bit disappointed when I found out he doens't speak spanish ) today at Nadal vs. Verdasco match he could hardly say a few words in spanish. I don't care that much anyway....he is the best umpire yeeeeeey
Wednesday evening I was sitting in the 2nd court watching Gasquet-Gulbis which was surprisingly scheduled late (Gasquets second match that day, he was scheduled to play doubles).
It was cold and there weren't much spectators. I heard 2 guys coming to sit behind me, sounded like speaking Arabic. Suddenly the score from the main court (Del Potro going to a third set I believe) was announced through a walkie-talkie and the two guys laughed.
I looked behind me and who did I see? Mo, with his feet on the back of my chair. My company laughed his eyes out at my astonished face and the sound I made.
I tried my best to listen to the rest of the conversation and could make out they talked about Gulbis a lot and the performance of the referee: applauding when he checked a call and made an assured decision.
After this, they left and Mo walked away from me smiling...
Here are some Mo pics I took in Rome last week
All the pics are from the rain match Tommy Robredo - Marat Safin
And it was quite funny, because at some point Mo wanted the crowd to sit down and said :"Por favor"....ähm...oops...Per favore..." It was soooooooooooo sweet and sooooooo typical Mr. Mo
Btw, I think when this thread was created, we didn´t know where to put it...and as of most of the Mo fans are also fans of the spanish guys we thought this would be the place....
At lest this is how I remember it
