    Yesterday, during MD final of Czech Open I have seen french guy leaking some liquid to his racket grip. It was most probably something that prevents sliding the racket in the hand. Does anybody know what it could be, how well this works, where to buy it... Thanks in advance.

    MIght be "SURGRIP".

    Put too much and the racquet becomes slippery because too much powder gets put on.

    A thin layer can be advantageous. It smells though.

    ahh... I know what that is, but i can't recall the name right now, and its not liquid, its gel. Help to prevent slippery griping since some people sweat through their hands pretty badly. It will help the sweating hands to grip better :D
