many tennis players have their "thing" but it's usually just one thing (Roddick shirt pull, Bartoli shadow swinging) but Nadull has many:

- water bottles
- clean the baseline (on clay) before each point
- butt pick
- push hair behind left ear, touch nose, hair behind right ear, nose, then left ear again before each serve (YES he repeats the whole thing for a 2nd serve!!)

And at he start of the match he also refuses to leave his seat first when the umpire calls time.  Fed actually messed with him once by staying seated for a good 20 seconds after the ump called time. Nadull stared over in his direction for a few more seconds before finally getting up Laugh


rafa also avoiding stepping the lines when going back to chair after game(and the line between umpire and the net{sometimes there is a cord connecting net sensor with ump chair so he intialy doesnt want to step on it})

looks funny when you watching courtside,bumpicking is unbearable but for few games only(if you right behind him)

Has he said he suffers from it? If not, then you can't guess these things because it could just be superstitious obsessions without compulsions. People mock this illness a lot, but it can become very severe to the extent that they can't do anything, or go out, or even talk to other people. Usually people will be concerned about their safety and or their hygiene - neither of which Nadal has exemplified. If he had, he may refuse to play on particular days, or not want to touch the tennis balls when they have been in the opponent's pockets, possibly wouldnt want to use the same towel twice, and would never leave a half eaten banana on the chair next to him. Maybe someone will ask him why he does the water bottle thing sometime - if it is to do with him winning, then that is not the same thing as if he said that it is because it protects him from harm. When did he freeze? Was it because he noticed he hadn't put his water bottles in line, or had not scratched his bum? If so, maybe that was an induced anxiety effect, but it seems unlikely.

- butt pick
- push hair behind left ear, touch nose,

------------

the order is BIG different:

he picks his butt, then touches his nose (=smells it!).

And i see nothing wrong with that. The only way to learn how you're doing behind is to touch it by your fingers, and then smell it!Laugh

I like to see one single incident before serve during a match where
Rafa, AS YOU SAY, is bumpicking.

Please feel free to use a magnifzing glass.

I am sure that you gonna change your opinion unless you are blind

Good Fred
I think a lot of the players have seen what the joker etc were doin to put him off his stride and the OCD has gone from something designed to get under opponents skin is now getting under his own
I reckon someone should kick his water bottles across the court and throw him a tube of anusol
Out of the top ten this time next year

OCD, the perfect excuse for giving signals to betting professionals what you intend to do the next couple of games.

Hasn´t anyone found a pattern in his bottlepositioning, the order in which he takes a sip from them and the volume left in each bottle??

I´m sure SOMEONE hasDevil

I must say i've noticed Rafa seems to be getting worse. Couple of weeks ago caught him line up the bottles and walk away and come back TWICE to adjust them slightly while the other guy was at base line waiting to serve. It was beyond his usual obsession with it. Wouldn't make me lay him here though..
