This thread was inspired by Eurosport commentators who said today that Conchita Martinez has a habit of keeping her tennis rackets in the fridge. I find it really hilarious :D

Come here and share your knowledge :wavey:

I remember Hingis has this way of breathing or it's more a pff kind of thing. I don't know how to explain it, but after a point played she breath/blows in this way that it's in the direction of her eyes/hair. Strange if you can actually understand what I'm trying to say :o

Monica keeps her trophies, rackets, and anything related to tennis outside of her house. She used to keep them all in her garage, but I think she has a storage unit/bldg now just for them. She never wanted to get caught up in the trophies and stuff, so kept them outside.

Imagine, 9 Grand Slam trophies & 44 "other" trophies out in some outter building. :o

Always 6 wiggles to the left and six wiggles to the right a quick shuffle forward a quick wiggle and a shuffle back.

LOL, slightly exaggerated but close to it :)

Pam Shriver always looked constipated when hitting a backhand...and her left arm was always straight down against her side like clenching her hip.

Mary Joe Fernandez always puffed out her cheeks (on her face) when she was hitting the ball.

What about Gaby?

We will need a thread on it's own just to describe her rituals.

Man, if Mary rewrote the bible, Gaby rewrote 6 sequels to "How the West was won" :p :p

Serena and her little note was also weird when at the change of ends she had a small ritual of reading it, then putting under her towel, closing her eyes and sitting still for a moment ;)

Is she still doing this?
