    In Bob & Mike Bryans' blog on atptennis.com, Mike talks about taking some 'Powergel Gus' during a match - has anyone heard about this stuff? What is it?

    Basically its a carbohydrate gel... absorbs quicker than eating a banana...
    i remember having a fair bit of the stuff when it first game out...
    Now i just focus on eating a decent amount before playing, and just keeping the hydration levels up...

    You can get a Lucozade gel which is ok too. I us it sometimes at the gym -- after a long day at work and putting the kids to bed and so on. It seems to make a difference, though that could just be the rest I get while I wrestle with the "tear off" top of the tube.

    I didn't have time to eat my breakfast and lunch on a high school game-day and my coach gave me a pack before my matches. It gave me enough energy to finish three tough matches. I think Gatorade makes this gel too...
