Thigh Tapping

What is with the girls tapping their thigh in the WTA? Is it a nervous twitch, did they all see Sharapova do it?

Re: Thigh Tapping

Idk why but at first read I definitely thought of something wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy different than what your talking about

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Victoria Azarenka ~ Venus Williams
Maria Kirilenko ~ Petra Kvitova

Re: Thigh Tapping

There are also a few doing the manic Pova fist pump between points now too. Its like these girls think if they copy the mannerisms they will become great.

Pironkova has always done it. It's her trademark move.

Re: Thigh Tapping

Pironkova used to do it a lot harder in 2006 and she was a lot more vocal with her "haide" as well. It's tame in comparison to the old.

When she beat Anna-Lena at Wimbledon 2006...

When a bulk of the tour begins walking on their toes and praying to the rear wall before every play, I think you'll be onto something.

Re: Thigh Tapping

Safarova does it in celebration instead of a fistpump.

Re: Thigh Tapping

Pironkova's thigh-tapping is very cute. Especially when she just gently taps it.
