to minimize sweaty hands that could jeopardize your respective service game. others tend to have sweaty hands.

Jan Mike is the worst at doing that! He blows his hands after almost every point!

I think Dokic has to be the queen of hand-blowing. In fact it's a miracle all that blowing hasn't eroded her fingers and forced her to adopt a pirate's hook as her playing hand.
