Players That Shave Their Legs

Last night I noticed Tipsarevic shaves his legs. Mardy Fish does as well. Ferrero use to back in his heyday.

I find it intriguing and slightly mysterious. Like maybe a special breed of human?

Anyone else?

Re: Players That Shave Their Legs

I saw this alot when I went to Madrid. Players like Canas, Nalbandian who you would think like hair on their legs but shave. Apparently my coach told me it's cause it helps the massage afterwards if they have no hair. But then Federer has hairy legs so? It confuses me too.

Safins leg to me have always looked pretty bald. I wouldn't be shaving my legs, even if it helps the massage or whatever.

Shaved legs look disgusting. Like chicken legs. Glad Roger doesn't shave.

Federer could take a buzz saw to his and it wouldn't do anything.

Re: Players That Shave Their Legs

I don't see anything wrong with players shaving their legs. It even looks better!

Re: Players That Shave Their Legs

Doesn't seem like an issue either way- maybe some do it because they feel better if they sweat a lot? Competitive swimmers and cyclists will, as well.

Except for Fish, everyone looks fine.

Re: Players That Shave Their Legs

All the cyclists are shaving them, but I dont know why...aerodynamics maybe?

I tried it once and its the most weird feeling I couldnt wait to get some hair back. And some friends were making a fool out of me.
