Do most players use sunblock?

I really hope so. The sun is so damaging, and I just can't imagine how unhealthy their skin is from being out in the sun for 30+ hours a week!

Not all sunblock is as obvious as Amy Frazier's was, most of them rub in clear.. so you may not be able to tell if a player uses sunblock.

I really think Daniela should start using some. Her face always looks so blood red!

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

I saw Maria using it during a match at the AO one year.

I remember Fabiola Zuluaga had it on during her AO SF and the roof was closed

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

Frazier for sure But she'll have the last laugh when the other girls who were careless have skin cancer removed from their face

That is a good question though...definitely a great idea considering the time they spend in oppressive heat & sun exposure..

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

All players in their right minds use sunblock and have for decades. Not only will they risk skin cancer by not doing so, but they'll have "leather" looking skin by the time they're 35 or 40 years old! Accck!

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

I'd think it would be a little tough to go out and play matches with a major case of sunburn, too.

I remember that match. The commentators could not stop talking about it. It was very noticeable though.

To answer the question. I don't think a lot of the players use sunblock. You could tell by their pictures outside of the courts. A few months ago there were pictures of Lindsay Davenport close up and her skin looked horrible.

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

I read an article last year about Amy Frazier and her sun screen. She buys it by the CASE! Durascreen is what she uses. Her skin looks healthier then some of the younger women on the tour. http://www.durascreen-usa.com/shop/d...p?itemid=03897

Nick Bolleteri could have stood to use some in his life.

Re: Do most players use sunblock?

they all have bad skin cos of the sun regardless of whether they use suncream or not. Davenport has horrendous pigmentation etc from the sun, but of course shes gonna use sun cream. Up close Sharapova's is v bad too!

LINDSAY DAVENPORT!
Say what you like about Davenport, but shes achieved what most others could only dream of!

Of course they all would. If they didn't they would be bright red and obviously sunburnt from spending 1 hour in the sun at the AO! On average it takes about 15-20 mins to burn in the Australian sun in summer.
