Del Potro's weird superstition

He rolls up left trouser-leg in shirts before return games but service games plays with a normal trouser-leg. Rolled up for the first time against Muller, repated it against Cilic and now the same when he is playing against Federer.

Re: Del Potro's weird superstition

I noticed this the other day too Mariano Zabaleta does it as well so maybe it is a Tandil superstition

Re: Del Potro's weird superstition

It's hot when Mariano does it. Talk about great legs.

Re: Del Potro's weird superstition

What are the other superstitions of other players?

There's Ramirez Hidalgo and I also noticed one of an Argie futures player, Juan Pablo Villar. He kisses his wedding-ring something like 3 times everytime he will return a serve.
