Picture Of The Day: So That’s Where She Hides The Balls

Spare Balls

To this day, I still don’t entirely understand why tennis players put the spare tennis balls in their pockets on their sides. I get it that they want to be able to grab the spare and continue to their next serve without throwing off their focus too much, but why not get somebody to toss them a new ball every point? Baseball pitchers don’t have spares on their sides. Golfers don’t need a new ball all that much, but they don’t feel the need to strap a ball to their hip during their round.

On the bright side, it does gives fans something cool to look at when the female tennis players lift their itty bitty tennis skirts to retrieve the spare. Hello!
