According to the Rules, nobody but the player involved is entitled of the admission to speak to the umpire.
And DingNing has NO (!!!) good English to communicate with umpire, but "yes" and "why" only.
This is the very reason for DN to get so nervous on every service call from umpire. Yes.

If that's true, it's a rather silly rule, as it discriminates against those that do not speak the language.

It's what they get for not trying hard enough in school. Wait a minute, those schools for athletes are training grounds with a front of a school. Can't totally blame the parents or the kid, the system is totally setup to get teh kid to maximize his/her chances on the standardized English exam that places a premium on $100 words no one uses. It is no wonder kids do not learn how to master the simple words/expression and learn to connect them together and build confidence. There is no time to do any of that stuff that does not profit you on het exam. What a shame. Millions and millions putting in countless hours over at least a decade, many with after - after - after school training and the kid cannot speak 1/2 a lick and after teh first hello, simply terrified of making mistakes, result is poor speaking. What a shame, you have to fail (and learn why you failed and work to overcome it) a lot and put in the reps to be able to effectively use words in context and connect ideas with grammar. Too bad the school systems focus all energy on an exam that has little application in real life situations. For all the zeal and dedication many asains put in (Heck kids in Korea were shuffled off to extra extra night school after school and Korea had to make a law shutting down night schools at a certain time like 10 PM) with all this time and energy expended, the results are dismal. Even with 1/10 the energy these kids expend, if the system focused on using effectively simple stuff, then connecting, then inching towards this high level stuff, they would almost be English professors.
 
Is it right to dictate that such and such language will be the baseline for ITTF use?
 
No.
 
Is it practical to have one language for ITTF use that is already either dominant accross the world or widely studied?
 
Yes.
 
I empathize with this situation as I have burned a gazillion brain cells that will never come back studying an asian language to a high level and a couple others as well. I know well what you have to go through to succeed and unless you are a natural at it, you have to do the work and it comes down to posessing at least average intellingence and really HIGH level of determination and later good learning and practice technique with available native level people to ask how to use it all.
