    I don't know what it is. I'm just posting to express my surprise that no one has jumped at this opportunity to make a steroid joke. ;)

    Power gel and bananas

    After seeing Nadal having the energy gel during his match and then winning, I ordered some Power Gels over the net - I've heard good things about them as a personal trainer friend of mine uses them all the time when running spin classes...and he said he gets an instant boost of energy due to the electrolytes being replaced straight away.
    Nadal seems to know the right things to eat during a match as he also ate a banana, and that is the perfect mix of both instant and slow-release energy due to the sugars and less water/more starch (compared to other fruits).
