An issue just came about about Nadal's knee-tape. True. I do seem to see him wear it all the time, that every time I see him out there with it, it concerns me. If I were playing him, it would concern me. When Roger plays Nadal, maybe it concerns Roger. When Gasquet plays Nadal, maybe it concern Gasquet. Me too. Whoa! Hold it there! Do you see where this is spiraling towards? It may just be psychological, that Nadal places the tape for psychological reasons. Well, if this isn't the MAIN purpose, then it may be a fringe benefit, a SECONDARY purpose, if you will. You see, Nadal may TRULY feel sensitive and weak in the knees, but as a fringe benefit to the tape, he can use it to BRING THE OPPONENTS DOWN TO HIS LEVEL of understanding. Or better yet, BRING THE OPPONENTS UP TO HIS LEVEL OFUNDERSTANDING. What do I mean? I mean that his opponents will be focusing and thinking: "Is Nadal injured or not? Why is Nadal smacking these winners? He's got that white tape on not just 1 knee but both knees! Huh?!? What's up with that! I just saw if bolt and hit a winner off of my incredible drop shot, that Michael Chang couldn't even get to ! How in the world did this Nadal dude get that?". You see, the knee-tape may cause Nadal's opponents to think, think, think, and think some more, and more importantly, think about the other opponent, and not on their own game. What a marvelous strategy! If it is one. The Knee-Tape may very well be psychological.
