    That's no way to greet a new member of the forum.

    Was somewhat funny though at times you guys were really trying hard to be funny and you just weren't. Kind of made asses out yourselves at times.

    And what the **** was up the cheap shot at Dolgopolov? Totally uncalled for, out of nowhere and really kind of pathetic.

    Not to mention the way you butchered Paribas every time you said it.

    It's French you idiots and you don't pronounce the "s."

    I'm not sure if you were doing it on purpose or you were just that ignorant.

    I'm betting it's the latter.

    Ouch, man. haha.

    This was my first tennis tournament and I was just trying to have some fun.

    The Dolgopolov thing was because this girl next to me at the Murrays doubles match kept saying how much she loved "The Dog" and can't represent a guy who beat the Murray Bros.

    Seeing as I speak English and not French, the first time I saw the word "Paribas" I assumed you pronounced the "s". I eventually found out I was wrong, but then you got to roll with it.

    Thanks for the view!

    How is Paris pronounced in English? If you're consistent, you probably should pronounce the s.

    No, because with Paris, you don't pronounce the French word, but the English translation.
    On the other hand, with Paribas, you pronounce the actual French word and not it's translation in English.

    Murray needs two things to fix his game and image: a shave and a shrink. If he can ever get his head in order, he still has what it takes to win on Sunday.

    God this was just so painful to watch. Fans want to feel like they're important to..."Andy said he'd follow me on Twitter...I'm gonna hold him to it"

    Just watch the matches and cheer for him, don't try to inject yourself into holding him to anything. The guy is just trying to make a living. Leave him alone.

    That makes no sense. Paris in English is not a translation - it's a different pronunciation. A translation would be the English equivalent of a given word.
