If you saw the Ginepri match (at French Open I think), he was wearing a lot of plaster on his arm and I see that on other players in other sports too.. what is it? whats the use?

Didn't you hear what he said at the French Open?????
He said that he was doing that to psych out his opponents.
That's what he said to Pam Shriber, or one of the other commentators.
I was watching when he said it.

lol.. actually I did hear that...and I also saw him take it away in the middle of the next match which he lost..

but seriously.. what is it's purpose?

btw.. I see Walsh (beach volley) wearing lots of it now at Olympics
