The best towel pointer on tour

besides Hewitt is Youzhny. Beautiful how he points his finger towards the towel while looking pumped.

Nadal makes a gesture like "come here, boy"

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

When Hewitt points at a ballboy he does it so fiercely that I would be afraid to give him the towel.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

I think Rusedski was quite the pointer in his day.

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

Haha funny idea for a thread.

I remember when at Wimbledon Ferrero was asking the ballboys for a towel in Spanish, and it took them a few seconds to realise what he wanted. Yet he speaks very good English, so as to why he didn't ask for it in English I'm not too sure. It cracked me up though.

And yeah Hewitt is pretty scary with the towel.

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

I've always enjoyed Nalbandian's index finger jab for the towel after an amazing point that he's won.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

Hewitt is impressive in this field.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

Speaking of Youzhny. When he cut his forehead last night and wiped the blood of with a towel, what do you think the towel kid did with it? I wouldn't want to touch it.

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

I like Soderling.

He seems very serious when he points.

Re: The best towel pointer on tour

Murray - not exactly a pointer, but this gesture is hilarious ("I can't see, I can't see!")

Didn't he used to do a waving gesture over his face?
