What about you guys?
What about you guys?
in the case of the nadal, maybe touching his headband slightly reduces the contaminating power of his fingertips, due to his pre-serve routine ?I can't stand how guys take off their sweaty hat or headband right before shaking hands. Can't you wait ten seconds until after you shake hands with the other player and umpire before you do that?
Says a lot about the current state of tennis that the ATP has been driven to this point of desperationThe ATP website referring to any player under 22 who wins a couple of matches as a "#nextgen star." It's looking a bit desperate....surely a star will emerge eventually.
At least they overcompensate for the unnecessarily distant bro-grip with intimacy. One will now frequently witness loving caresses and near lip-lock at the net. All is not lost.All right, this is a weird one. But it does bug me. Why don't players shake hands properly anymore.
Even worse, the whispering is definately useless and annoying. They could say some morse codes in a low frequency and I doubt very much the other team will understand lol.Doubles players always slapping each other's hands after a point has been played, win or lose. Who started that caper?
+1 about Mary Gorilla. Jimmy Arias really bothers me as well.American commentators mentioning how Jack Sock's forehand produces more topspin RPM than Nadal's.
Also, any word that comes out of Mary Carillo's mouth.
Haha, I actually like Arias. He sounds like he's drunk when he's commentating so my wife and I always joke about what kind of alcohol he might be sipping as he's working the match (or how many drinks in he is). There's a Scot that he works with pretty often whose name escapes me but I think they make a good team.+1 about Mary Gorilla. Jimmy Arias really bothers me as well.
As for Sock vs Nadal RPMs, I was under the impression they were about the same.
Haha yeah I saw that and thought even the ATP are concerned about how long the "Old Guard" have managed to maintain their dominance over the tour!!The ATP website referring to any player under 22 who wins a couple of matches as a "#nextgen star."
