Trophy Biting

Does anyone know how exactly the biting of the trophy got started? I’ve seen old photos of Carlos doing it, and I imagine that's where Rafael picked it up, but why did he do it? Does it have a meaning, or is it just silly fun?

Re: Trophy Biting

Good question! hahaha! Maybe he did get it from Carlos What I do think is, should he still be playing at lets say Agassi's age, he'd still be biting the trophies he wins!!
