I'm just curious! Tell me if you have and what did you say!

I said "Ich liebe Sie, Anna-Lena" to Anna-Lena Groenefold at Hopman CUp this year! but in general im mainly speaking english but can't speak other languages!

cheers

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

I said "Co me stai" (the phonetic spelling becasue I don't know how to write Italian) to Roberta Vinci and she started replying to me in Italian. My lack of vocab from the days when my nonna babysit me was so minimal that I had to talk English and move fast before she thought I was n00b.

I screamed in French a lot of times to the Quebec players.

I screamed in Slovak to Daniela, Podme and Ides Caya!

Yeah in Fed Cup 2005 Argentina Russia doubles I shouted in Spanish "GORDA LARGA LOS POSTRES!!!" to Kuznetsova and she looked angry because she understands Spanish.
My shout means something like "Chubby, stop eating pies!"

I've talked in French with Mauresmo, Pin, Dechy and Cohen-Aloro and a mixture of French and English with Pierce. She started talking in English but then I unconsciously replied in French and then we went on in French, then back in English and so on.

oh yeah, also talked in french with Dhenin. She's hilarious cos we were sitting in the car and in the middle of a sentence she turned up the music really loud and started singing along. Not a bad voice I must say

I think it was the trainer of Dekmeijere who tought me a russian word. There is a belgian village called 'Huy/Hoei', he said that's russian for the female genitals

I remember some of us in Daniela Hantuchova's forum here were learning encouraging things to shout in Slovak at matches.

I did wonder if Daniela hearing Slovak words shouted in weird accents would be distractiong or amusing more than encouraging to her, though.
