Great incentive for future investors !

What's the deal with the Frenchies and Ericsson? I mean as far as I know that's like a mobile phone company. Are they bitter Maria didn't win and they prefer Motorola?

I think that when she paused, they thought she'd finished speaking without mentioning either the crowd or Mary. Once she'd carried on and thanked her camp, the crowd and said some kind words about Mary, they cheered her. But I'm not sure.

I'm sure someone with better French will translate her speech, it was sweet. I liked what she said about Carlos and Mary.

she said it was a great honour to play against mary and that she had liked it.

She dedicated her victory to carlos and thanked him a lot and said she hoped he would stay with her for a few more years.
she also thanked her husband for having so much patience with her and she said she was proud of him.

That's not that we don't like Sonny Erikson, it's just not a french thing to speak sponsor and money in a ceremony that's all. It sounds like the players have to do it, it's not natural, it's commercial "thank you to you for giving so many money" etc...it's taboo.
For example french people dislike the fact the president gives the check to the finalists on the court in the us open.

The French crowds are just rude and snobbish. It's that simple.

I really think its you that hate French people... Justine is one of the most appreciated players in France Of course they were disappointed, but its not the reason of the boo... Its not because people are different from you that they are stupid

Excellent! So many French haters here, who are not able to take into consideration differences in culture Everything they dont understand is necessarily stupid to them
