    It looks like an evian bottle and cap, so they probably just put an energy mix in it.

    A few years ago I read an interview with Martina Hingis & she talked about how she used to use a product made by Twinlab called HydraFuel, a sports energy replacement drink. Basically it was a 'higher performance' gatorade. It comes (came) in powder form & they had fruit punch, lemon/lime & orange flavor. I bought a few gallons of the powder in Vitamin Shoppe, but I believe it's discontinued now. I'm not sure if they still drink the stuff on the tour, but I'm sure whatever it is, it's very similar.

    tennisnj, can remember Twinlabs also had an UltraFuel which was loaded w/carbs. Sort of having your cake and drinking it too. Sold in our grocery stores if you can believe it. Great when forced to play 3-5 hrs of tennis with little(5 minutes) break.

    It's not just water, although some players just drink water. The evian bottle had a red liquid in it, and some other bottles had orange liquid in it. Did they put something in there?

    the other posters said it's evian water and one was there, so i think thats right. some players add 'enhancers' to their water and that could colour the evian. i thought maybe it was some sort of new energy drink that i should try and thats why i asked. i like the propel water..it's light tasting and low in calories but has goodies in it. ed

    Believe this topic is covered earlier but any thoughts on whether these players are using Accelerade/Endurox for hydration? Btw, Heineken is also a sponsor at the US Open. Bet we all would recognize that colour, eh?

    the BOTTLES are evian, as for whats inside, sports drinks would be a good guess. could be gatorade,powerade, a juice mix, who knows. but as for the bottles with the red caps, those are evian bottles. for example, federer was drinking water today against santoro.

    Who cares what they drink? But for myself, you can't bet an ice cold marguerita with lots of Tequila. Oops, that's for after the match.

    Yes, those are Evian water bottles and some players are adding either a powdered supplement or a concentrated liquid supplement to the Evian, hence the varied hues that have shown up on court this week. Ollie Rochus appeared to be drinking plain old Gatorade after his match today.

    For players who have a very specific preference, the powdered/concentrated formulas are the easiest to pack into your luggage and since every tournament provides bottled water to players its pretty convenient to mix your own. Just make sure your supplement isn't contaminated in any way...

    A friend works in the referees office where players keep their sports drinks. Some people drink commercial sports drinks and others make their own concoctions--as pete used to do.

    The way Sargsian is blasting through 5-setters, you'd think it was kerosine in his bottle !

    I know a kid ranked 3rd in the boys 18s new england who drings FOUR redbulls before every big match. Considering that that's 8 bucks right there, seems like a pretty expensive habit :shock:

    Propel fitness water is a complete sham and waste of money.

    The suppliments in there are so minute that you might as well bring your own water and just take in nutrients seperately.

    Propel fitness water is a complete waste of money, its true. Buy a bottle of gatorade, put two tablespoons of the gatorade in a bottle of water and voila, you have the same thing.

    Red Bull is also a complete waste of money, it's just caffeine and sugar, read the label. No different than coffee or flat soda, but it can cause racing heartbeats in children.
