on foreskin and forehands


Must Watch Tennis All The Time wonders if foreskin, or the lack thereof, might be a reason why the Americans are failing miserably on the ATP Tour:

People say that not being circumsized makes you have a lot more feeling in your penis. Maybe, somehow, this extra feeling in the penis makes them have extra powers on the court.

…And so I wanted to try and make a list if all the top one hundred players who are not circumsized. I don’t know if the Russian do it, but my guess is not. So Safin might go on this list. And definitely Feliciano Lopez, Tommy Robredo, David Ferrer and possibly Juan Monaco, although I’m not entirely certain about the Argentines.

…Perhaps the ATP or the ITF would like to do a study on this. I would be more than willing to help.

I know a few other people who’d be willing to help with the research. And maybe she can use this picture to figure out Juan Monaco’s, uhm, situation.

Speaking of blogging, check out Colette Lewis (Zoo Tennis) and Peter Bodo (TennisWorld) talking about blogging’s effects on the sport. And if you haven’t done so yet, take a look at Nick’s blog, Tennis Chatter (his latest post is a 2008 preview of the women’s tour). He’s also been writing for Sportingo; see those articles here.

I wish everyone a happy and successful 2008. And I hope making this my first post of the year doesn’t come back to haunt me.

    Safin being a Muslim is probably circumcised, don’t you think ? LOL

    Thanks so much for quoting my theory on why Europeans are better tennis players than the Americans! I’ve got my clipboard in hand and as soon as the ATP and ITP escort me into the men’s showers, I’ll share my results with you.

    maybe we can have an “informal” polling done when they do the drug pee test? (and by informal, i mean my hands)
