    I was curious what sport drinks the men & women drink and if they're available to consumers. Thanks for any info.

    yea but its also loaded with electrolytes and will replenish your body of any nutrients lost while playing during a match

    i am in no way certain of this but i know that some players do tend to drink it...not the most pleasant tasting of drinks but it gets the job done...ur safest bet would be the grape flavor :D

    Try some Cytomax. It's great stuff--you'll notice a difference.

    Nadal's an awesome player and for all you haters, hes been tested plenty of times, and each time he was proven steroid free.

    nadal drinks water, but if you pay attention, he takes different sips from 2 different bottles, i am guessing that one is a salt, potassium, and electrolyte concentrate, while the other is just plain water.

    i also noticed that nadal takes an energy gel when he breaks in a match.

    I've been drinking that 100 Plus stuff lately.

    Tastes great, but I look like a weirdo breaking open a can while on court.
