lol  Yes I noticed that too - not forgetting the two separate lots of ball bouncing before each serve!

Strangely enough Djoko's ball bouncing count went down today, maybe because he wasn't firing on all cylinders. Think

I noticed that watching the SF, it is the same routine every time, he must be knackered having to remember to do that each time, you have to wonder why it does not come at the cost of his concentration on the match, just shows his talent and professionalism, he is one seriously OCD guy tho'.  Must be horrible having to deal with that.  Have often seen him during the course of a match, looking over to check his water bottles are in the same place.

I think Nadal must be the David Beckham of tennis.  Beckham had so many superstitions it was a miracle he was ever able to leave the house!

Your man did very well, and I congratulate him, but it has to be said that Djoko turned in a "B" class performance - one that, had it been Andy, would have had Boogers & Co salivating with negativity. Very Happy
I don't know why Rafa was so gleeful about beating Jocko. It was obvious that Jocko was not there at all. It was hardly a game of champions. All Rafa had to do was slug the ball as hard as he could and he knew he would win. I turned it off as I did not want to see Raffa biting the cup for an 8th time! Jocko and Murray will be back!  imsorry

Must be something in these nervous tics obsessions, I notice Andy is needing to pinch his willy more often these days! I think that they should all wear boxer underpants and baggy shorts, Rafa should have a decent hair cut get rid of the bandana and wear a flat cap. Monte Carlo should be ditched unless they can find a decent tennis court away from the sea. I mean that scene of  blue sea and Feds luxury boat tossing on the waves is enough to put anyone off their game.  naughty
