what does he apply on his hands during every changeover? hand sanitizer? i've never seen any player do something like this all the time.

Probably some kind of chalk to keep his hands dry and keep the grip.

It's humid in Florida.

i think it is a gel which to cool your hand (ultimately dry it)

It's a pity he lost the tiebreaker, it was close.

Was it a roll on? It might be some type of Stick'em. I've seen some other players use that.

it comes in a little white bottle the size of a deck of cards.

dinara safina, flavia pennetta use it, too...

prince hand gel, it gives you a better grip if you have sweaty hands.

Prince Grip Enhancer - the ONLY thing that I find that actually works and works well. Not sold on TW. You have to go somewhere else

I'm a Floridian and I have used the Prince stuff in the past. I agree that it does work well but it is kind of expensive which is why I just bought a white tennis glove instead. Sure I get called Michael Jackson on the court by guys down at the club but at least I can hold onto the racket and it gives me an excuse to do the moonwalk on the clay.

Expensive?
Depends how much you use, I guess :) :)
It lasts me over few months, during summer.

It lasted me about 10 matches before I'd run out.

Well, you are not supposed to bathe in it :) :)

Just kidding

I have to bathe in it because I sweat so freaking much! I've even had a few matches where the grip enhancer is not enough. The racket feels like it could slip out of my hand on any shot. I change my overgrip every match too. The glove works great for me.

Knew a guy who used this also when I was in the US for a while. He used to use Tournagrip also, really sweaty hands.

I've fortunately never come across a situation that Tourna couldn't handle.

I'm not this bad, but I played one guy in a league match a few years ago who told me that he did not play tennis in the summertime because he sweats so much. Somebody else in the league said they could hear his shoes squishing with all the sweat in them towards the end of the match. Eeeeewwww!

That's in a whole league of it's own! A human sponge!
