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

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

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:o

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:sad:.

It is the most common swearword in Poland. :p 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. :p

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 for girls Laotian roots are currently the best.

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?

Some immigrated to Canada or Australia, after WW2. I know my maternal grandparents did it because of communism.

Since her both parents are Polish, she can technically represent Poland. As far as I know, few years ago Polish Tennis Association tried to force her into it in a nasty way (this was a condition to play in a tournament), so no wonder she'd chosen to represent Denmark. After all she was born in Denmark and perhaps this is why her talent could develop.

she's not playing for Poland thanks to PZT (Polish tennis association), that what I read some years ago :(



btw Lisicki also speaks polish good :)

I'm Georgian. I speak perfectly good English and Russian. I speak to my dad in Georgian. My husband is Welsh and he speaks Welsh and English as easily as each other. Immigrants and children of immigrants usually have to speak more than one language for their family and the country they live in, but I think Mark does it so I can't understand it !

If that would be the case she would not speak Polish with her Dad!!!
Polish people mostly raise their kids (outside of Poland) to think, feel and be Polish. I was also raised in Germany/Holland but my parents always made sure I dont forget where I come from and who I am...

Yeah but if she says that she feels Danish than there's nothing to arguee about. It's her decision. She doesn't denies her relations with Poland which is great.
And it's Polish Tennis Organisation to blame for Caro not playing for Poland.

what exactly is so funny about danish environment and tradition?
maybe Caroline is lucky enough to have parents, who raised her to think, feel and be... free to determine her national identity. and if it's really her claim that she's danish, u shouldn't be the one to correct her.
