    I heard rumors that they're using olive oil on the grips to quickly change grips in the pro scene and then rubbing it on the shaft to make it more slippery through the air.

    Any further leads folks?

    The oil serves a dual function actually. Not only is it used to make the shaft more slippery, but when players are in a particularly long rally, they can lick the racket to get that little bit extra energy from the oil to get an advantage over the opponent. Why do you think top players like Momota stay so consistent as the rally drags on, while the opponents falter? It's because the Japanese have the best olive oil, none of that inferior Mediterranean stuff. Just yesterday I had a crate shipped from Japan. Olympics here I come!
