    Look at those horrible blisters on his hand. One of them has even ruptured! If that happened to me, I could not continue playing let alone spoiler alert beating Stan 6-1, 6-3.

    Blisters or callouses? Looks like both could be in those pictures. The lower one looks like a callous. Callouses are not painful.

    It's a good thing feet stay in your shoes and nobody has to see 'em. But, how can you hide your hands? Ewwww!

    I am sure all players have to deal with it. I think Rafa and federer have to deal with it more because they use such small grips. btw that is utterly gross

    but wearing loose shoes can risk having less support of the ankle and nadal does alot of running
