Thumbs down My god Appelmans is stupid

After Kim's match she was honoured for her mentoring Kim when she was young. She was asked to do everything in english over 3 times because it was taped for the WTA and other TV stations as well, but she just kept on talking flemish

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

why did she refuse to talk English?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

well exactly how hard is it to add some subtitles

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

subtitles for foreign TV, Maeike, quelle idée! They'll just do voice overs or you may actually hear the original language being spoken!

we always have subtitles even when people are talking flemish

Subtitles are good. I hate it when someone translates while the player is talking! They did that for Schnyder, when she won in Zurich. Shut up translator! I'd rather hear her speak in her language even though my German isn't very good. They did the same for both Mary and Kim after the French Open final. I think it was Virginia Ruzici who was translating.

What is stupid is people thinking they have to conform to english all the time. Get a translator, although I don't think it could have killed her if she could of appeased the TV people either. I wouldn't call her actions stupid.

Subtitles isn't expensive! Everything is subtitled here, all interviews that are given in another language, news items, TV series, films, etc. It's not as if the Flemish TV has a lot of money.
