Do you use "allez", "ajde" or "come on" in tennis or non-tennis life?

I'm really wondering if some of you use Dementievas "ischna" or Justines "allez" or sharapovas/serenas "come on" or what ever in non-tennis life? To underline your success or something like that...

I began to speak like Dementieva or Safina when i'm not contented or when i play tennis and make a lot of mistakes although i can't speak russian...

Or do you use those words when you play tennis?


It's a difference between "allez" or jujus "allez" for example.
I really mean to words in the way the tennis players use them...

Dementieva says " Otlichno " , which roughly means good. It's pronounced something like " Lichna ".

I find myself using ajde in non-tennis life

I am similar to Serena in one way *GASP!!* in that I say come on to myself to pump myself up.
But i'm not going to try to speak another language lol

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Do you use "allez", "ajde" or "come on" in tennis or non-tennis life?

I think it "Otilichna!" And it means "Excellent!"

I usually "Come on!" more along the lines of "Oh, come ON!" when I've made some ghastly UE. It's the opposite of celebrating. I do a stupid little hop when I hit a nice winner and don't say anything.

I use ajde all the time. When I get frustrated I start swearing in Russian or Afrikaans or I say an ajde of despair. This is in non-tennis life AND tennis life.

I "ajde" and fist pump in just about everything I do, in honor of my girl.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Never. I'd find it very embarrassing if I started doing it during a match!

I do verbal gestures, but more frequently I do a single shake of my clenched fist.
