    If you don't know what it is you probably don't need it.

    That's a stupid statement. If a new racquet grip comes out that is 10 times better and will never give you blisters... if you don't know what it is, you don't need it? What about new racquet technology, etc. You just trying to clown on the OP.

    The whole point is that it's a little strange that the OP doesn't know what that thing is, yet he seems intent on buying it. Does he think it makes Djoker look cool?

    Who cares. Why do you wear a hat or certain shoes or wristbands or buy a big wilson racquet bag... .etc.

    A racquet grip and knee bracing are two very different things.

    If you don't know what the tape is, you shouldn't be using it. It's not just there for show - it's applied in a certain way to support a certain weakness or injury to a knee ligament, tendon, or muscle. Physical therapists and sports doctors use and apply this tape, and teach patients how to apply it in specific ways to support a weakness or injury.

    Either way, it's a piece of medical equipment you shouldn't be using without knowing what you're doing.

    Go to the hardware store and get yourself some duct tape.
    Have fun looking like a pro.

    Why doesn't anyone just help the guy out if they know. If you don't know, quit clowning the guy like you are some expert. Next time consult a doctor when you put on a band-aid.

    well, no need to be so harsh but I agree some people are being over-critical here.

    If the guy wants it and you can help him, just help him but warn him of the possible risks at the same time.

    Let me know when you realize there are a dozen ways to tape a knee to stabilize different parts in different ways.
