I know he is half-Lebanese but I do not think he can speak Arabic. He speaks fluent Greek, English(from Cyprus) and French(6 years in France in tennis school)


P.S: It's Cypriot, not Cyprian :p

:lol: I'm pretty sure he can read :dielaugh: :dielaugh:

At the age of 13 he left Cyprus to go to a French tennis school, since Cyprus has terrible facilities for single events(like tennis, swimming etc). Not that our other facilities are good but hey, we are improving there at least. His father is Lebanese, but he speaks fluent Greek, I think he's here for like 30 years:D So Marcos must have known some basic French. Greek is a given :D And English is usually learned at a very young age, like 5-6. ( i spoke English before Greek for some odd reason :eek: Have no foreigners in family :rolleyes:) So by saying that he can't read coz he left after 6th grade in elementary school(last grade there) is a bit too much :lol: I'm pretty sure you haven't recently learned how to read :D :D :D

The semi-final game begun on 10:30am local time. Schools were open :(
Nearly every classroom had one or two radios and students were sneaking on the score :lol:
All 4th forms(i'm in 5th) went into a hall and sat altogether to watch the game, including their teachers :eek: Some of our guys went also after hearing... Then that a-hole principle came in the room and kept shouting to them etc...

School would have ended for us at 1:40pm, but our teacher was absent so we left, and went to the radio club of the school, which is controlled by students :D There, in my surprise, I saw a small gathering of 7th formers who should have been in class drinking and smoking while watching the game :p
So we were 20 people crowded in a small room, in front of a tiny television... The agony was too much when after a dramatic 2-2 equaliser in sets, Nalbandian was winning 4-2 in games and had the serve... Somehow, Baghdatis managed to overcome that! :D :D :D Then the stupid rain started and we had to wait 20 minutes for the end :frustrat: :p
Gladly, Baghdatis won and we went home happy at 3:00 pm :lol:

India's Mahesh Bhupathy and Hingis won the Mixed Doubles 2-day.

This is Hingis's 8th Australian Open title and 15th Grand Slam overall. :star: Hope she is back in a more regular basis from now on.

Also, this is Bhupathy's 6th Mixed doubles Slam, and with 6 diff partners. Is that some sorta record ?

1-0 set for Baghdatis but Federer seems confident in this one. 3-2 for him after being 0-2....

Hingis stuns Sharapova in Tokyo

February 04, 2006 11:54 IST

Martina Hingis stunned top seed Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-1 to reach the first final of her comeback at the Pan Pacific Open on Saturday.

The former world number one, a Tokyo winner in 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2002, outclassed defending champion Sharapova in every department to reach her seventh Pan Pacific final.

Hingis will face another Russian, either second seed Elena Dementieva or number four Anastasia Myskina, in Sunday's final.

Sharapova was just 15 when chronic ankle problems forced Hingis into early retirement in 2002, but the 18-year-old Russian had no answer to Hingis's guile and precision.

Hingis returned to the game last month, reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals and winning the mixed doubles title with India's Mahesh Bhupathi.

The 25-year-old Swiss was unranked three weeks ago but climbed to 117th after her strong run in Melbourne. Her victory over Sharapova will lift Hingis to just outside the top 50.

Great stuff Hingis! She's coming back!:crazy:
I'm so glad she crushed Sharapova, she's so overrated.

But she lost against Dementieva in the final...
No matter, the important thing is that SHE'S BACK!!!:)

I don't know how you can say Sharapova is overrated, she came out of nothing, she's so young and she could have been a one-tournament wonder after Wimbledon, and instead she's still up there fighting with the top players.
