In any case, it was kind of weird. Cramping in the arm?
Supposidly that can be a result of lack of recent match play since it was in the arms and not a lack of fitness since it was not in the legs (per P McEnroe).
Anyway, I have to say that I agree with one of the British fellows who often comments on the Masters Tournaments that are shown on the Tennis Channel. You have to blame the rules and not the players. If the rules allow it, the players will use it. I saw that at Monte Carlo where Gasquet took an incredibly long injury time out that was well over allotment and got a full body massage for cramps. I was half expecting for them to dim the lights and play Enya. I saw that during the Puerta mid-point massage during the French Open. Do I blame the players? No. Because if there is a rule that allows things people will do it. That happens in sport and in life.
To alter the "If you build it they will come" line from Field of Dreams
- if you allow it they will use it. (I know I do in situations in my life.)
