Default WHo are best foreing language speakers on the tour?

IF there is similar thread pls merge this, i don´t want to be about Roger or Novak so pls anyone in let´s say top 200 who you know is good in languages?

let´s say who is best german language speaker or french language, spanish language speaker not having those languages as native language?

Someone you have heard in interviews and so on who speaks at least 2 foreing languages at high level

Probably best comgo are English/spanish, English/french, English/german as foreign languages, Novak and Ljubicic i think spoke also great italian for example - Ljubicic is retired obviously but just example

Dutch is very similar to English, so I would guess Dutchmen. How does Haase speak? Scandinavians use to have great command of English too.

(Novak speaks Italian? Or is it "speaking"?)

yes his italian must be good, he was even in TV shows there and had no problem i think, yes NED/Scandinavia are best regions in term of egnlish almost everyone there speaks english very well and very high % of population, but i meant about players - which players are good in languages that people here on MTF know about or have heard them in interviews - english is most common language so i though about some players that are great in other languages not being it their mother tongue

Federer is smooth in English. Scandinavians, Dutchmen speak purest English. Germans speak English good, as well. French, Italians, Spanish truly suck.

Dutchmen speak English very well indeed. They have much less of an accent than British people at least.

Andujar speaks a very good French (as good as Federer I'd say), Baghdatis is okay too.

You have to hope this is a joke but with Muricans, you can never be too sure.

Berdych knows how to fanboy in a foreign language so he's right up there.

No, I'm serious. I know, it's astonishing, considering English is the native language of Brits, but I really understand Dutch people better than Brits. When I talk to Brits, I have to say after almost every sentence: "Wait, say again please." Can you imagine?

As for me, I understand Brits much better than Americans or Australians.

You've probably got a point. When it's your native language you're less likely to speak standard English all the time.
