    What I've noticed over the years with Toni's signals:

    Ear wiggle= Cross court forehand to your opponents backhand(if he's right handed)
    Nose scratch= Cross court forehand to your opponents backhand(if he's right handed)
    Blink twice= Cross court forehand to your opponents backhand(if he's right handed)
    Tilt head=Cross court forehand to your opponents backhand(if he's right handed)
    Glare= You had better break now my little lamb, or else you won't be getting gambas y pasta tonight

    Yesterday since none of these was working he was cupping his hands around his mouth and shouting instructions in Spanish.

    Almost every tennis player with a coach gets coaching on court. The commentators even mentioned multiple times in that match that Rosol was clearly communicating with his team. Thats tennis.

    Sorry dude, that ain't tennis. It's called CHEATING.
    Doesn't make it any more legal if "almost every tennis player gets on court coaching". There are plenty who don't.

    No it isn't. That's against the rule and Nadal was fined by the ATP officials in the past. Uncle toni and Nadal haven't learned their lesson.

    That is Nadal requesting suggestions from Toni.

    Nadal doesn't need more "on court" coaching... he needs more sideline "anger management"!

    In his loss to Rosol, the camera was right on Uncle Tony while he was shouting instructions, with his hands cupped around his mouth like a megaphone, to Ralph. It couldn't have been more blatant.

    I wonder if Toni called any of the "infamous tennis dads" (Mr. Agassi, Mr. Pierce, Mr. Capriati) to "take care" of Rafa!!!! LMAO!!!! :)

    "Bump him at the changeover" :D. It was in Spanish. Or Catalan. Whatever.

    In any case, all this is meaningless since the 30 minute break allows for coaching, and that didn't help Ralph.
