What about "Dinara comes back to RG to finish what she started" in french?

I know Pepi, it's amazing but GOD I AM SO ....breathe......

Maz,you'll have to chat with a native Frog to be certain,but I'm fairly sure it'd be "Dinara Revient Finir a` Roland Garros Que Elle a Commence' "

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: Is it a bird? A plane? No, its Roland Garros!

bruce, your french is really good, you just forgot 'ce' before 'que'.
my little corrections:
Dinara revient finir Ó RG ce qu'elle a commencÚ.

or another idea : Mademoiselle Safina est de retour Ó Roland pour finir ce qu'elle a commencÚ


BTW what's the story of the bird and plane?

This place is too small to put all the players i like here.

That's very kind of you,Lilimi,but my high-school French has deteriorated quite a bit from lack of practice so I did a little online searching....However,aye CAN answer your question: In the original Superman TV series,which started in B&W I think,the intro to the show had citizens looking in wonder up into the sky and remarking:"Look!It's a bird!It's a plane!No,it's Superman!"....and Maz gave us a cute,dorky spin-off of that

Another interesting sidenote:the actor who played Superman in the movie was named Christopher Reeve,while the TV actor was named George Reeves(at least aye THINK it was 'George')...and they both had lives cut short by tragic circumstances...more 'Twilight Zone' than 'Superman'

yeah it's good too. just it's "commencÚ", not "commenšÚ".
i don't have great writing skills, i'll never be a writer, that's certain, so as long as ther's no mistake, it's Ok for me

i think 'Mademoiselle' adds some 'parisian chic' touch.

I suck at writing both in Arabic and English

I like the "mademoiselle" part too
