I guess there is just a general consensus on the ATP tour that it is considered "feminine" as so any wta players wear visors now, which is sad of course.
THIS.

I'm a guy and am comfortable wearing visors while watching tennis. AND I COLLECT them too

But wait..does exposing your crown on the sun triggers balding?

I used to have a black puma visor, but I realized men don't wear it on court so I gave it to my girlfriend

Re: Why don't men wear visors ?

I wear a visor....it doesn't matter. I like the fact that it's able to move up or down my head, depending on the sun needs, and I have buzz cut hair. Bandanas don't do it for me, baseball caps easily fall of my head or don't block the sun enough. Headbands I could never get next to because they do nothing for the sun aspect, and my visor did just as good of a job with sweat.

A visor is fucking useless when you're bald like me (or balding). I do think the amount of hair you have makes a difference.

And yes, protecting the crown of your head is actually a good way of avoiding heat exhaustion and worse. It's the same deal as to why you actually stay cooler with a shirt on that you are shirtless on a hot day.

Men also tend to sweat more, and caps, at least for me, do a better job of absorbing sweat that either visors or headbands (I wasn't always bald, you know).

It may also just be a fashion thing, but I think there's practical side that has to do with yeah, the women usually have longer hair piled on top of their heads and the men don't, plus the care issues. A lot of the women seem to go back and forth.

Lena's cute in caps.

I assume that male players aren't as bothered about their hair as female players are. It's easy to wash short hair to get rid of the sweat and dirt, whereas it's more of a pisstake to wash longer hair to get rid of the sweat and dirt so i assume it just makes the job easier. I'm not entirely sure though as I don't wear a hat or a visor.
Please ! I had that look down years ago !
