Nadal never helps the ball boys. Why?
Posted by tennisplanet on September 2, 2008
Nadal will never touch a dead ball, even if it is coming right at him. Most players will tap it to the ball boys/girls.
Is that just one of his many egocentric antics? Or is he so much in the zone that a slight tap of the ball will snap him out of it and transport him to the freaking ET ride at Disneyland, making him lose the match? Geeezzz!!!!
I think he also makes an effort to not step on the lines.
Fish, are you listening? Twenty bucks to a ball boy can get you a win and a semifinal berth here.
