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.

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

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?

Apparently its from Lord of The Rings - Yes he's a Sci Fi Fan. (or is that Geek)

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

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

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

safin also used to have some sort of a muslim symbol. and another thing i forgot what it was which he said was given by a fan.

okay i can understand coria having his marriage ring but what about monfils i doubt he is even engaged yet!! maybe it just looks cool with the other players!

It's most likely their wedding bands, especially if seen on players that are known to be married. Tennis uses the hands so much with the shots and racquet but unlike a sport such as football, where the footballers wear their bands, it would be a bit uncomfortable to wear rings in tennis.
