Caroline has polish roots

Ok
I must be the last one to know this but They just showed Caroline talking with her father (?) and He was talking to her in polish.
The fact that they speak in polish shows a lot about herself

sorry if already mentioned

Re: Caroline has polish roots

What a bombshell! Of course she has, she constantly swears on the court in Polish.
Her parents were football and volleyball players and emigrated to Denmark years ago.

Re: Caroline has polish roots

I knew that when I saw someone's signature that was something like:
my dream top 10:
1.a.radwanska POL
2.u.radwanska POL
3.c.wozniacki POL(I wish)
.............

I am so jealous that Sampras, Philippoussis, Baghdatis and now Prousis didn't play for Greece

Different situation w/Baghdatis and Cypriot athletes though. Most likely they would've played for Greece had the Enosis plan happened(Greece-Cyprus untiy)had Turkey not invaded.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

I think this falls into the "no shit, dumbass" category

It is the most common swearword in Poland. It would mean "bitch" if we blindly translate. If she says this word a lot, it means that she thinks in polish language, not danish.

In the past I wished but know I see it doesn't matter for me which country she represents.

I am myself polish of croatian origin so I know how it is.

And it's already done for men : Greg Rusedski

And for girls Laotian roots are currently the best.

Re: Caroline has polish roots

Watching Caroline on the livestream and she speaks English very well. Good for her. I guess we can thank the Scandinavian influnece that she can speak English better than most English people.

Oh I forgot about about Greg. I try to block him out of my mind. Wasn't he a Canadian first?
