Hey :wavey: It has been puzzling alot of people this week, as to why myskina is wearing a huge plaster/tape which looks like a nicotine patch on her leg :lol:

Has she had some kind of burn on her leg, or wound? I couldnt think of any other benefit, its not like a support it just seems to be covering something?

I am guessing she might have revealed it in one of her interviews, but I havent been able to find anything?

Yeah, I found the tape weird too.

I know she got medical treatment in the Kuznetsova match at this leg/foot so the tape is probably connected to that. Don't know what the exact problem was though. Judging from the tape one of the muscles? But does such a tape help in that case?

Luckily she didn't seem hampered by it. Hopefully it will be completely healed by the day after tomorrow.

I think its just a preventative measure, to keep the muscles warm ... Anastasia did exactly the same thing at Wimbledon 2005, and she just said that she wanted those particular muscles to stay warm during her matches!

Thats why I was confused, I wasnt sure if tape like that would help a muscle injury. So it puzzled me.

I heard from one of the commmentators on the BBC, during coverage of the final, that it was to help a 'minor calf strain'

It's to stop shin soreness or help existing shin soreness which is common on grassssssss.

Maybe she was waxing her legs and afraid to rip that one off. :)
