Nadal's bizarre rituals

I read an article about players bizarre rituals, during the match. It stated the professionals, psychologists, work on the players, doing aome new rituals, and also practicing them to make them automatic for the players. Actually players work on their rituals with psychologists since th 90s, one of the first player was Agassi.

Do you think players choose their rituals with the experts to break the concentration of the opponents? Some tennis experts state that between the top players not the skills and talent decide their match, just the concentration (okay maybe that's a talent too). But if I work with experts whom help me to be calm in the match, why on earth I wouldn't ask them to help me break the opponents concentration to win my matches.

Please dont start to bash the players you dont like in this thread, try to keep it normal.

EDIT:This article is just showing Nadal's routines its not the article I read, but because that is a hungarian article most of you couldnt understand.

Novak always takes 5 hours to bounce the ball before serving.

because the crowd was noisy. He bounces a lot less now. Good for tennis.
