View Full Version : Were you aware of Nadal's butt-picking before it was pointed out to you?

A lot of people seem to despise Nadal because he picks at his tushy. :(


Personally, I had no idea he was doing it until Soderling pointed it out to me at Wimbledon 2007. :)

I always noticed it..i mean he does it on every point. Watch vids of him when he was younger..he did it back then as well.

I noticed the first match I watched him play I think.
I actually don't think he has wedgies any more, it's just that it became a fixed part of his rhythm and now he just does it out of habit.

Noticed it. But upon noticing it I also never felt a desire to have a collection of nadal buttpicking videos bookmarked on my computer, like some of the other posters here. :)

I was pretty obvious, it would hard to NOT spot something like that. One time, during Roger's cup a year or two ago, the massive screen showed Rafa picking his ***, everyone laughed.

It was weird at first but I now take it as part of his OCD so it doesn't bother me anymore.At this point it would be weirder if he didn't do it.I don't think it's something he can control,it's part of his routines,just like the towel off,the water bottles bit,the sprint to the baseline and so on.
He obviously knows that people mock him for it and he still does it so I think it's something that he can't really change because it is somehow important to him,for whatever reasons(and no I don't think those reasons are practical,no one get wedgies on every point).

They should do that again. This time for every single butt pick. I bet he would stop doing it after they showed him picking his butt few dozen times in the first 15 minutes.

Yes I was aware that he tugged at his shorts. Just as I am aware of Roddick's habit, but I am informed that it's OK for guys to do this. I really think that those who constantly go on about Nadal's habit are the ones with a problem. Just watch the tennis.

Fact is I find Roddick using his T-shirt to wipe sweat off just as disgusting a habit.

Oh come on. Its a sport. In the 80's, when everybody didnt wear sweat Bands, it was commonplace for players drying sweat off on their shirts. They are competing in a sporting event, not participating in a fashion show.

Actually what I first noticed was Nadal's Obessive Complusive Disorder. He would go to the sidelines pick his water bottle up, take a sip, then put the water bottle in the same EXACT position he got it from and made sure it wouldnt fall or was out of place...


Yea he aint all there.. I like it though. Its why he is who he is. Hes nuts

It may be more the h2h between him and a certain top player. Nobody is/ or should be that obsessed with a habit. That's why threads have never been dedicated to Roddick's or Agassi's habit in the time I've been on here. Those decidedly more disgusting habits are often revered.

on second thought, nadal doesn't even "pick his butt", he just tugs at his shorts near his butt. I think that if he was actually picking his butt, it would look a lot more revolting than it in fact does.

well... when he is about to serve, there's no tennis during a significant amount of time. :rolleyes:

only buttpicking (ok, it's true he immediately cleans his hands right after by rubbing his nose or his hair), and then ball bouncing, ball bouncing, ball bounching (and bad ball bouncing, nothing to do with joker's ball bouncing which is highly entertaining).

i noticed nadal's habit the second match i saw him play. so i guess i'm not as observant as everyone else here, but it sure struck me as, well, strange. but we all have those ocd habits. doesn't really bother me.

Watching the match now, and noticed that very thing. It's nowhere near the area people allude to. Guess that's why he doesn't bother about it. It's too insignificant.

I wish they would put a shot clock up and make them move the match along a little faster. Nadal's habit seems like the Emperor's new clothes. Hasn't anyone told him to knock it off? Roddick suffers from chronic ball displacea and must adjust himself regularly. Agassi used to hill billy hanky all over the court. I don't really care about any of it, just the part about taking forever in between points.
