    He also speaks Italian and Spanish. I guess I got an edge there because I already speak Italian. So I'll see the rest of you guys at Spanish class.

    As you correctly say...almost ;) they're nevertheless three different LANGUAGES, not parlances in one given language...even if they currently call themselves "foreigners" each other..

    I'm Portuguese and i speak english and spanish fluently but can't say sh#t in italian..
    They all have origin in latin but are different.. The spanish and the portugueses not that much.. But the italian is very different.

    Maybe I should have used the Serbian-Croatian-SLOVENIAN analogy...
    :)

    But yes, "almost" was the key word in there ;)

    I disagree. Nadal's english is far below Del Potro's. I don't think I've ever heard Tony speak english. Does he?
