Federer's hair adjusting before he serves

Nadal's entire between point routine/post winner stare-downs/grunts/serve motion

Federer's hair adjustment

Murray's c'mons/whats/screams

Sharapova's screeches/dainty fist pumps/c'mons

Djokovic's (former)chest thumping/victory face

and the list goes on...

I would love to shake Nadal's hands and never wash mine ever again.

LMAO, good list. I would have to go with Sharapova out of these.

Murray lame "come on"s, Hewitt yelp "come on"s, Hewitt chain jiggling, and Ivanovic loud stutter step on hardcourts before opponent serve are all honorable mentions.

Djokovic's bouncing lasts the longest and is most noticeable.

I hardly ever notice Roddick's and Nadal's quirks.

He's the only ever man i've seen cry when losing a slam. :(

Infact, I thought it was quite disrespectful to Nadal.

How about all the moaning on the court?

Firm action is needed, I would suggest this

Wow another record, the first losing finalist to ever cry:D
But I guess they all wanted to cry though and be off the court as soon as possible. I think he tried to control his emotions but couldn't. It is not disrespectfull, it is not like it was his choice to cry it just happened.

So we can conclude you are unsuccesfull in life and you either think you have a hot girlfriend or you are dreaming of a hot girlfriend. Most likely the latter. Whereas Federer ...
Are you sure you are not just jealous and a little bit bitter?

Bryan brothers' gaymo (gay and emo) chest bumping. Wait... that's not politically correct... and they're brothers. (Sorry masses.)

Federer's hair adjusting. Cut your hair!

Nadal's bottle placement routine. The buttpicking isn't annoying because I wouldn't play with material in my crack either.

I'd rather be gay, poor and happy than straight, rich and miserable.

But to each their own.

I just hope one day you'll grow up to be less of a jerk than you are now, kid. And I hope you start wising up about voicing such opinions in public. You could get yourself into a lot of trouble.

The point of my 'lecture' was that happiness matters more than sexuality. But I'm VERY impressed you can regurgitate other people's material and switch words around.

A gold star for you!

I was reading an article in UK's Observer from June. Apparently Nadal cried for an hour in the changing rooms at AEC after losing Wimbledon in 2007. Then he wouldn't leave his house for a week after. :P

Happiness does matter, but are gay people actually happy?

Hm... I don't really know, perhaps you should take a pen and a notebook, track down every individual gay person in the world and ask each and every one whether they are happy. I'm afraid I can't speak for the global gay community.

I would have to say it's a toss up between nadal/joker and the endless amount of time they take between points, or sharapova and her mating calls on the court that crack the paint on my walls.

LOL, I took this video with my casio ex-f1. It records video at 300, 600, and 1200 frames per second. This particular video was taken during a doubles match.

I actually got some unbelievable video of him practicing at 300 and 600 frames per second, but haven't gotten around to editing and posting them.
