Because he is playing on clay. It does not harm your body like hard courts.

Oh ok, jw, based on how my knee is I would think just for prevention he would still want to keep them on. Especially knowing how much he is into keeping the same habits.

It could also be part of trying to send a message..."hey I don't need to tape my knees on softer courts."

It will be interesting to see when and if the tape goes back on.

I was thinking the message thing too. It will be interesting indeed.
