Does Mardy Fish have pockets?

I notices yesterday that when Fish needed a second serve he'd get a second ball from a ballboy. Has he always done that? Does he not like shorts with pockets, or just not like the feel of a ball in his pocket?

yea, he's the only guy that I notices that does that.

People don't even like carrying a wallet or keys in their pockets. Why would you expect tennis players to play with an irritating bulge down there?

Djokovic tried it in the third set against Berlocq 3 days ago, after he dropped a ball during a rally and got a warning.

Sampras did it too.
I didn't believe it so I checked some videos and shouldn't have doubted you. This might tarnish my opinion of Pete, I believe in pockets and using them.

Maybe Agassi was right, Pete was just uncomfortable reaching into his pocket for a ball, to pay a tab...:)

I think any man is used to having a bulge down there. :) I'm sorry...you left yourself wide open for that one. :)

I believe Mardy's balls are in her pocket:

Ha ha, that joke's gonna live on forever. I'm kinda surprised too, because in my mind it would disturb his service rhythm if he has to stop and look to the ball boy for every second serve.
