Yes, not to be funny, but a lot of the top players have ADD tendencies. Djokovic, excessively bouncing the ball before the serve, Nadal, having to place water bottles in the exact spot, Sharapova does a little skip step when she goes back to her chair.
As with all true genius in this world, most of their brains are wired differently than normal humans.
