I like Rafa but that's kinda grosse!!!
I've never heard anyone criticize him for this, cheers for bringing it up..
he gets wedgies, deal with it.
why doesn't he just get some under armour undies?
I wonder if he knows he's on tv and we can see him smelling his fingers and putting them in his mouth?
Lol, I think it's awesome
great players need trademarks so they can be remembered better like in 20 years oh yeah rafa nadal the one that used to pick wedgies. lol i dunno...thats just my guess
its like when you smell something bad, and you jump. it pumps nadal up to smell that smell, just like the song
Nadal wears shorts and underwear, people.
I for one have never understood it. Everyone else in the world seems to be able to find underwear that fits, why can't he? Even then, everybody gets wedgies. You don't see most of us picking at them because we are discrete about it. Nadal seems to wait until the moment everyone is looking at him to dig one out.
For some reason, it's just part of his ritual. He obviously doesn't really need to do it. It's just like lining up water bottles. It's just a habit. But, he probably needs to think about breaking it..
Its his secret weapon. The fumes give him a mental edge.
I'm now seeing Federer pick his butt too. It's starting to catch on.
would you really want to be known as the guy who picks his arse?
If I could play like Rafa, sure :grin:
maybe fed should do that and see if he can beat nadal.
Hahahaha.....actually there was one time that fed also picked his butt...geesh maybe that nadal habit is contagious...
also, rafa was asked before in an interview about his habit and he said that it's just his butt which is bigger than the usual.....
but i still lurve rafa......mwaahh!!!!
That is funny :twisted::twisted::twisted:
I can't believe the women don't pick their butts more. Those compression shorts do ride up. Yet I've never seen it on TV or at a live pro match.
How do they manage it?

Man enough about his butt picking...if you don't want to see it change the channel...otherwise just ACCEPT IT and leave it alone.
maybe u should start getting some too.. they sure helped him.. and your the only 1 complaining
But all of the Wimbledon officials have to SHAKE HIS HAND after the match!
But I guess all of those old British fogies smell anyway, huh?
I didn't notice him picking his butt so much during the Finals...I think he was too focussed on the match to think about his butt.
It's a possibility but I seriously doubt Nadal gets wedgies every single point or every other point, because that's how often he picks. You've seen countless players get wedgies in the back or need to readjust in the front, but not like Nadal. And unfortunately when I've turned by eyes back to the screen at the wrong moment, one can see he is picking straight up the wazoo not around the underwear edge or anything. One can discreetly pull them out of there.
I just really try to turn my eyes away at the point he's about to do it, it's that predicatable. I don't see how the women find him so sexy when he does that all the time when playing a match. Not that I'll ever play or meet or see him in person, but I sure as hell wouldn't want to shake him hand after a match.
Are you people even aware that he has obsessive-compulsive disorder?
"Are you people even aware that he has obsessive-compulsive disorder?"
No, you're the first person to ever observe that.
On an unrelated note. There was a key point, I think it was one of those match points Fed saved, when the TV cut to Nadal's father whose initial reaction, not surprisingly, was an "ooohh" face but then he smiled and applauded Fed's great shot. It's not surprising Nadal has so much class. It's hard not to like the Nadal crew.
First off, gross for starting this thread. Secondly, he doesn't put his fingers in his mouth. You make it sound like he picks and then puts them in his mouth.
Secondly, Rafa just has rituals. Deal with it.
Why is this even an issue? It's just a habit of his, and it's not like it bothers his opponent, since it happens out of view.
I thought I was the only one. He actually copied it! He is so in love with Rafa!
It's obviously part of his routine. He does it more when he's nervous as well. In an easy match he sometimes won't do it at all.
Yeah..I just think Nadal's OCD. That's his "tick".
For pulling on a pair of shorts? You're the sick one really.
Calm down Nadal fans, it's just Fedites pushing your buttons, and it's working. I can't believe how defensive you all are being over this.
I think most Fed fans know it's no big deal, they just see how much it bothers you..
Not so bad compared to, say, Roddick. I can't watch the guy fidgeting and jerking around on the screen, pulling his shirt, moving his hat.
he can do whatever he wants he is RAFA
That's a big ask. Or should that be a big a**.
He doesn't have a wedgie. It's where he keeps the extra ball.
It's just paradoxical, you know? They say they like Fed because he's "classy." How then can you explain their behaviour? It's weird.
There it is!
It's not even about Nadal. It's just classless and immature that anyone over aged twelve would a.) start a post like this, but b.) (and even worse) have supporters.
Note: Make a note of posters names so as not to respond to them. They have lost all credibility!
He puts his fingers in his mouth after he's picked his shorts? :-?
How come i've never seen this??
or we could make a list of people who think it's ok to suck crap juice off their fingers
Because "this" only exists in the OP's fetid imagination...
You know... Rafa may be picking out a wedgie, but at least he doesn't adjust his doodle like Andy...
This post is not intended to start anything, by the way.
I like Rafa ... but c'mon, let's be honest: The picking thing IS a little weird.
Do any of you do it when you play tennis? (Do any of you PLAY tennis?) And would you do it if you were in a stadium full of people? And on television?
I realize he has his rituals and all, but c'mon, knock off the ass picking stuff.
Somehow I can see you making time for that. Carry on!
This O P really shouldn't see the light of day it is so pathetic. I sat about 6 feet away from him at Wimbledon and only saw what a magnificent player he was - like the thousands of others who were cheering him like mad. How come he has such an enormous following - many of them women who think he is amazing ..............is this the reason for the spiteful, nasty nit picking-I would suggest so!!
no pun intended?
The only reason that he appeared to do it less in the Final was that the cameramen went out of they're way not to show it. They mostly showed him from the front.
Can stupid threads like these stop being made?
Why? Fed and Roddick fans go through similar things.
