    I saw that! She basically wiped after every point, sometimes one side sometimes both sides.

    21-17 15-21 21-16

    If we sum up the total points, it's 38+36+37=111 times!! Interesting!!

    It will be interesting to see if this habit has developed since her recovery from her achilles injury. I know many people who've gone through serious leg (eg. ankle, achilles, knee) injuries tend to be very cautious when they come back because they don't want a repeat of 'slipping'. Anybody got old videos of Tine before THAT injury? Did she wipe her shoes often then?

    With that Achilles Injury in the past might got her Supertitious. She might consider Mid Rise badminton shoes like that of Mizuno's. Either she prefer Cleaner Soul/Sole rather than dirty hands!:rolleyes:

    It is a Danish superstition that rubbing/touching the shoes is lucky. It is like the Irish superstition that tieing your shoelace on the left shoe/wearing the left shoe first will bring you luck.

    If it works, why not ? I will be touching my shoes more often now seeing how it worked for her.:D

    Why is Tine Rasmussen always wiping her shoes with her hand?

    .
    :D:D:D Why is Tine Rasmussen always wiping her shoes with her hand?

    So far, we have these opinions:
    (1) It's just her habit
    (2) It's her superstition
    (3) It's for getting better grip for her shoes-on-court

    I will introduce a new one here ...
    (4) It's for getting better grip for her hand-on-racket.

    IMHO, it's for (3) and (4). Hope that a BCer could get to ask Tine at her next tournament, the 2009 Korea Open SS.

    Hmm..

    ..before you touch/rub them, make sure you take a look at what's on the sole(s), though..;)
    ..don't tell that to the person who threw those infamous shoes at President Bush...;)
