    On TV today, his socks had 2 swooshes. They didn't seem to be on one pair either.

    Most players worth their salt wear tow pairs, good for comfort and perspiration wicking.

    I hear that wearing two pairs reduces the fricton from the foot and shoe.

    i noticed that today too, but it was only really visible on one leg. i thought it some kinda superstitious thing, but ive never known fed to do something like that. the above comments make a lot of more sense. :p

    Yea, blister prevention.
    I've gotten so many blisters on my feet before becoz I was too lazy to put on two socks before I went to play tennis =\

    I have to say the socks get thinner and thinner / shorter and shorter (no see socks). Nike used to make thick tennis socks (what Hewitt used to wear about 4 years back). I still have a pair of these and they are great!

    Failing to find anything cushy, double socks is the way to go.

    I guess I'm lucky then. I don't even wear tennis shoes to tennis and I've never gotten a blister.

    Well their seems to be quite a fair amount of interest in Nadals underwear on this board, Federers wont be far away.

    I wear two pairs as well. Wearing 2 pairs is very comfy, like wearing soccer socks.
    To keep things cooler, I wear those little ankle socks as the first pair; it's only a little warmer, not much at all.

    A lot of players do that.Roddick,Safin,Haas and more..Most of them tape their feet too,so it helps.
