Sorry this is ATP, but we need to discuss this...

Have you guys notice the trend lately in Men's tennis? There are so many guys out there that have long hair or used to have ... I think they will let you out from the Tour if you don't have long hair ... LOL

That's why my dad discourages me from playing tennis. He thinks that all the guys with long hair are kind of feminine , like long hair is a femenine thing. But then I'm like dad,Roddick and a fe others don't have long hair so he's like I guess. But I think he think's I'm gay so really If I watch men's tennis I'm screwed cos they're all femenine and i fi watch women's tennis I'[m screwed cos I am trying to be like the girls. But yeah I wonder what it is with the long hair. I would think it's uncomfortable.

It's very hard to get a trustworthy barber/hairdresser when you're on tour. That's why Venus and Serena sometimes have such bad weaves/wigs on. :tape:

I wish they would hire me to keep keeping their hair on point. :p

Maybe the long hair gives them a feeling like they could fly when they run and chase the balls all over the court...

I like long hair. Rafter in long hair is just yummy. I saw him play in WTT tennis at Cabrini College outside of Philadelphia last summer. He cut his hair. I was dissapointed for a minute but then I was like damn he looks even better. So me and and about 60 ladies literally ran down from their seats to take as many pictures of Rafter as we could. The picture of Andre in the mullet takes me wayyy back. I think I'm goona save that James Blake picture. Yonk. Yummy. I hope more people try the long hair on the ATP tour.

Coming from someone with long hair: it isn't uncomfortable at all. The problem though is sometimes the hair from the back of your head gets in your eyes but other then that you don't really notice it.

As far as why all the male tennis players have it....I don't know, maybe their girlfriends like it??
