Kinesiology Therapeutic (KT) tape
I am not sure this is the product LCW use during his matches but I bought a roll in blue to try it out. They come in pre-cut strips in a roll. Avaliable in blue, beige black, green, red and pink colours. More info at www.kttape.com

KT Tape compared to a medical tape my friend who works in a hospital gave me. Both works the same as you have to stretch them out first before you apply them loosely at the ends. The difference is one is a medical tape and the other non-medical sports tape.
Will test the medical tape first tomorrow and next session the sports tape.

Anyway in the one of her commentaries, Gill Clarke mentioned that some players like Lin Dan who do this is to adjust the timing of their racquet to compensate for the different conditions in each sports venue.

Kinesio Taping methods - good info
For all BCers,
Anyone who wants to use Kinesio tape (there are many brands in the market, but essentially they are generically known as kinesiology tapes) should first study how the tapes are supposed to be applied.
Here is a snip from an e-How page that succintly sums up what Kinesiology tape is all about:
The Kinesio taping techniques originate from the practice of kinesiology, which is a holistic treatment that taps into the body's internal healing systems through the neurological and circulatory systems. While there are specific brands of stretchable tape preferred by many athletes and physical therapists that use Kinesio taping methods, the term refers to a way of taping rather than a brand of tape.
Here are some resources you may tap into for more information on Kinesiology tape products, and teping techniques.
Videos on taping techniques: (a great resource)
About the KT technique and underlying concepts:
More info on how to apply:
I am going to post this in the Injuries sub-forum as well...
I hope this helps you guys.

After trying out the KT Tape, I don't they are really that good and effective. After a while, the tape start to loose their stickiness and fall off from your skin. I have now switched to Mueller kinesiology tape which is much better and sticks really well. The other difference is they are not pre-cut in length like KT.
I think this is the brand that LCW uses.
