Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

Her Spanish "accent" is excruciatingly awful. It seems like all the umpires besides the American ones have no problem with officiating in a language other than their own. Sometimes she's even late calling the score because, I'm assuming, she doesn't remember what she's supposed to say in Spanish! How embarrassing...

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

When I first heard her say 'deuce' I thought she said 'new balls'

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

In her defense, Spanish is not one of the two official international languages. She announces both of those well.

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

Give her a break. She has to learn so many sentences for so many different languages, and I think she is doing well.

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

Give her a break. In fact she sounds funny, but she needs to know many sentences in defferent languages so it's not as easy as it looks like.

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

I know it is pretty difficult learning lots of languages, but surely she should be able to do it now!

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

For sure she was the most unnatural at French Open

Gotta love Mohammed Lahyani and his announce of score

Different voice at different times at every language But he is the best out there for me for sure.

Re: Lynn Welch is KILLING my ears

This is nothing comparing to umpires trying to call the scores in Polish during J&S Cup!
