post match interview Venus Williams - in Italian

My girl is multilingual and fluent in Italian.

Interview from earlier today.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDIj1...ature=youtu.be

Any other native English speaker speaks a foreign language as fluently? NADA I guess.

she is as relaxed speaking Italian as she is speaking English.

I can't wait for our TF resident Italian speakers who graded Serena's interview.

Re: post match interview Venus Williams - in Italian

That was cool, still needs a bit more gesticulation to sound like a legit Italian.


Just kidding, that was awesome. I've been learning Italian for 8 months and I wished I was as fluent as she is, I should be ashamed cause I'm Spanish and the languages are very similar But anyway I understood like 90% of it, I guess that's OK.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I'm laughing too swissmr. I love it when Serena speaks French or any other foreign language. In Serena's defense I do think she practices and knows what she's gonna say, but when she gets in front of the crowd she forgets and that happens.
