Nadal starting to use mouth protection

http://ib3noticies.com/20100407_6161...es-a-punt.html

It's in Catalan.

Quote:
Per cert, hem estat amb ell, i apart de la temporada de terra, a Montecarlo, també estrenarà aquesta protecció bucal. Amb la força de cada cop estreny les dents..i s’han de protegir. Pel que hem vist no s’hi acaba d’acostumar.
"By the way, we've been with him and apart from the clay season he'll also unveil a mouth protection. He grinds his teeth with every shot... and he has to take care of them. From what we saw he's still not used to it."

Rafael Nadal: bringing the concept of grinding to a whole new level.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Nadal starting to use mouth protection

lol that's an annoying yet funny habbit to have, grinding your teeth. Nadal is professional enough to not let something like that affect his game.

Supporting Andy Roddick & Andy Murray

Re: Nadal starting to use mouth protection

I wonder how long he'll wait before he gets those wisdom teeth out.

This is probably a thread more suited to the Nadal forum.

it's completely different : it's about sports where there are contacts between players, like rugby or basketball, in those cases the goal is not to lose one's teeth in a contact

(which happens from time to time actually)

Cech (Chelsea goalkeeper) even keeps a protection for his skull now since he had a trauma.

Re: Nadal starting to use mouth protection

ronaldo is using those that relax facial muscles and thus bolster entire body making it more ready for greater efforts, so I read some guy made a patent of it in the states.

perhaps nadal is using the same.

reliability...

Ronaldo doesn't wear a gum shield like you are referring to,that's mainly rugby and basketball.I assume he is either wearing nothing or the thing the other poster mentioned because I have never seen a soccer player wear what all the rugby players wear to protect their teeth-those things are clearly visible.

Re: Nadal starting to use mouth protection

You can see the protection Rafa is wearing in this video

Or, you can continue these pointless discussions.

Re: Nadal starting to use mouth protection

Duong....Huh? I know what a gumshield looks like and that's not what Cronaldo wears. It's a tiny little transparent thing that's more the size of a brace. Maybe it is a brace, or maybe it's one of these things.

Try be right next time you try patronise somebody...

The video is on the OP, that one doesn't work for me. I can't see the protection.
