Just getting around to watching my recording of the London Year End dubs finals and saw Bhupati poaching, nailing Grenollers squarely on the butt from close range. Gren waved it off, still in full retreat, communicating to Bhu "no offense taken". If you're gonna' play "new style", one-up- tight to the net-/one-back, and you're the net player, "You're gonna' be a target," like Jimmy Arias said, you better be alert at net, and maybe wear a full crotch and butt cup.
