emily webley-smith plays with one on her ight ankle

she broke her ankle then did her ligaments in, or was it the other way around? cant remember, but she was out for a year and had 3 ops, so she still wears one, though it's now alot smaller than it was when she first came back.

why do they wear strappings?
actually, if players were to wear ankle bracelets, it would be quite obvious cos most of the players are now wearing ankle socks. -thumbs up for ankle socks!

Let's call it interest...

why do they wear strappings?
To prevent the ankle/foot from turning over, if they kind of lose balance... It's a little uncomfortable at first, but it basically prevents you snapping your ankle, if you have weak ankle(s).

why do you care?
See above...

Most proper ladies wouldn't wear something as unsightly as an ankle brace. None of them want to look like they have fat ankles in front of the cameras or nothing. ;)

Lleyton Hewitt is probably the closest you're gonna get to a girl who wears an ankle brace when she plays. I actually like wearing an ankle brace. I borrowed one from my physio because I'd twisted an ankle and didn't want to risk turning over on it again. The trouble is, the ones that Lleyton wears is hard to find. You need to go to a special sports physio place in order to buy one. Chemists don't stock them. Buggers. I don't wear the ankle brace anymore. I can only find the wrap around ones you're supposed to wear under your socks. I used to wear them over the socks and it kept coming undone in the shoe. So stuff it.

it depends on how and where you strap it....its best to use bits of tape rather than wrap it round as you can build it up more in the places where you need the most support or where you muscles/ligaments are damaged.
