Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

Anyone see the Robredo match highlight where he lost the first set, then took a gulp of a fan's drink... only to go on and win the next 3 sets... what do you think the mystery drink was?

Hold the Fries, Amigo
By Michael Kimmelman
The Art of Tennis - Michael Kimmelman

I am sitting in the Grandstand players’ box during the match between the Spaniard Tommy Robredo and the South Korean Hyung-Taik Lee. As a rule, the higher-ranked the player, the larger and better-looking the rooting section. Robredo is in the stratosphere at No. 5 in the world.

So you can imagine.

Mostly, Robredo’s Team (that is literally printed on the back of the chartreuse T-shirt of one member) chats among itself. There is also some flirting with a stupendous young Swedish woman two seats away, and the occasional “Vamos.” Then in the midst of a tight match (one set apiece, on serve in the third) from the far end of the court, Robredo calls out a food order. He wants a large Coke with ice and a chocolate chip cookie. The guy with the T-shirt leaves a brunette, and hustles from the box.

He returns a couple of games later (I presume the lines at the concession stand must have been long — and by the way, it’s only Pepsi here, no Coke). Robredo strolls over to their seats in the middle of the game, takes a sip but declines the cookie.


It helps. He breaks Lee, wins the set, and then the match: 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1.

Re: Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

I was at the match and Tommy suddenly took a drink from a friend. He had previously taken some sort of medicine from the trainer. Perhaps upset stomach? Carbonation tends to settle the stomach...

It doesn't work for Feli because he's the producer.... but it's definitely why Ferrer, Robredo, and Nadal have been performing so well lately.

Re: Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

I didn't see the scene, but people say he drank something of a fan's drink? Who he didn't know? Wow! Because many athletes don't take anything of which they don't know the origin exactly, also because some ingrediants could give you troubles.
But maybe he rated the chance it could be harmful for him so low that he took the risk

Thanks for telling me! From only reading "from a fan's drink" I really thought it was a stranger

Now it makes more sense

Re: Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

smucav, in the quote in your message it said the score was 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. (In the last line) But it was 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-1.

I was at the match but I left before the described incident happened I think, because I don't remember it and I left during the second set!

Re: Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

I saw Robredo for the first time on TV. He seems really gay(in a very manly sort of way). What's the deal with him? He's got a girl?

Re: Robredo Drinking the Right Stuff?

he has problems getting up early for matches and can't eat much early in the mornings so he didn't eat anything properly before this match...so after a while he started feeling sick and getting a headache, so he needed some food/drink quickly
