DK jaan see if you can get him to talk about Aravane!

Perhaps you can ask him to ask Aravane some questions.  You said he is a regular commentator on Roland Garros?  What better time and opportunity!

Loved your Groucho Marx link ;0)

He is really popular in France. I didn't know him until a French classmate at the University mentioned him to me between our finals back in the 1990's.

Then I saw him on Roland Garros as a regular commentator. Would love to meet him. I know a few people who know him well so maybe I will try.

If you get a chance to read his book, it is really interesting and honest.

He came from one of the most poorest backgrounds and made it to the Top thanks to his sense of humor, intelligence and good heart. That is what I call the true definition of Nobility !

A True Gentleman. I would knight him anyday if I were Grand Chambellan ;0)


He has a familiar face!

by Anonymouse on

He looks like Groucho Marx or Bahman Mofid or someone!  It escapes me who he looks like more! 

Everything is sacred.
