As long as his chess language is good, we can always have an interpreter/translator for impeccable English.

Giri is only playing 46 points above his rating. The top 4 leaders in the B group all have higher TPRs than him so far. Except for Grischuk and Shirov playing poorly, there have been no surprises in the A group.
