London, July 3 : World' No.2 tennis player Rafael Nadal observes a number of incredible rituals on the court, but yet he insists he is not superstitious.
According to The Sun, he has to have two bottles of water, with one them being chilled and the other containing normal water.
After every game he lines up the bottles with their labels facing the baseline he plays from.
Then, his socks have to be short, no longer than 15cm up his shins - and must always be the same height. The sponsor's logo must be parallel to the ground.
Rafa ensures that headband is pulled out of his kitbag an hour before any match begins, but he doesn't put it on until just before he takes to the court.
After each point ends, he towels his face and left arm, and before serving he bounces the ball exactly FIVE times.
Yet the champ insists: "I'm not superstitious," added the paper.
