Re: players and their rings

I assume it's because it's uncomfortable to play tennis with a ring on their hand, so they put it on a chain around their neck. Nothing new. Coria's is mostly likely his wedding ring.

It can get uncomfortable playing tennis with rings on. Especially when your hands get sweaty. I had a couple of blisters forming under my rings when I had to play a lot.

Re: players and their rings

yeah i suppose it must get uncomfortable. but i was wondering also, does it not get uncomfortable playing with a chain around your neck? cus it goes up everytime you hit a ball and the more things you got on the chain the heavier it is

Re: players and their rings

Coria said @ one time that it was his wedding ring, b/c he wants it with him at all times I guess but its uncomfortable to play with it on your hand.

But I don't know about Safin, since he's not married is he?

Chains are easier to ignore. They probably don't even feel them.

Hoostie>> LOTR is fantasy (closely related to geek tho ).

He's probably not wearing the one to rule them all, though.
How many rings does he actually wear? I've seen so many chains around his neck he looks like a cheap bar singer!

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
