Re: Calleri and Serra almost fighted after match...

Calleri said that Serra had told him something like 'you play like a girl' but it turned out to be a misunderstanding.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

He misunderstood him....Serra told Calleri he played like a girl, in reference on his poor performance...but Agustin understood Serra was joking about his tennis :lol: Do you understand :confused:

Re: Calleri and Serra almost fighted after match...

Basically what happened:

After the match ended and they went for the handshake, Serra, attempting to speak spanish, said something like "tengo el nivel de una niña" (I play like a girl), and Calleri heard it as "tienes el nivel de una niña" (YOU play like a girl). Calleri asked him to repeat and he said the same thing, yet Calleri still thought that Serra was insulting him. Then they started arguing and the umpire calmed things down. Both left the court insulting each other, but in the locker room, things were made clear.

:p

I know Serra isn't a guy to say such things, he is very nice :lol: and he started course in Spanish but admitted to us in Szczecin he wasn't fluent, now we know he was true :haha:

After the match Serra says to Calleri in spanish: "Tienes el nivel de una niña" . This is a sentence with tacit subject, that translated to English means: "you have the level of a girl"
Calleri requested to him to repeats it, and he said it again in the same way.

Later they clarified it, Serra had to say: "Tengo el nivel de una niña" that means "I have the level of a girl"

:haha: :haha:

sounds like a tampon fight to me. How about they both be real men, drop the rackets and throw some punches.

Enough hissy fits already

Does "tengo" partly sound like "tienes" so Calleri misunderstood the meaning? :lol:

Seems that Serra, who is learning spanish, used the word "tienes" (you) instead of "tengo" (I)

Now if only Murray had tried to say this to Carlsen in Danish after their Auckland match and had a bout of fisticuffs with him, instead of cracking that joke to the crowd, the press would never have got on his case.
