Re: Hand gesture

The Vicht™ is a congratulatory hand-gesture created by former ATP touring pro Niclas Kroon used to celebrate his on-court exploits. Kroon started delivering “vichts” as a kid growing up in Sweden. The word “Vicht” is a bad pronunciation of the Swedish word that means “for sure”. Kroon used the Vicht™ throughout his career but it became visible to the most of the world when Mats Wilander used it repeatedly during the Australian Open one year. Since then it has been unfurled by athletes from all over the globe from the grass courts of Wimbledon, the soccer fields "Down Under" and swimming pools in several countries.

Re: Hand gesture

Probably a freemason sign or something. Looks suspicious

apparently Kroon accused Hewitt of stealing his 'salute'

Hewitt, the vicht stealer
