    Before the beginning of the fourth set while Fed had his bathroom break, Nadal was eating or drinking something from a tube.

    What was it? Some kind of thing for energy?

    Yeah, its basically liquid carbs. Consistency much like a melted candy bar. Not terribly different in composition from a banana, but a little higher in sugars and a little faster to digest. I use both regularly for cycling, but usually just bananas for tennis. No idea what brand it was though.

    Hopefully he didn't get drug tested that day. Having high levels of caffeine in your system can cause you to fail a drug test.
