Sayonara, Samurai Wrap!
Time for a little ATP fashion police. I know all the hard-working pros out on the tour don't have all the time in the world to worry about their appearances, but there is one quick and easy step that many of them could take to get an instant image upgrade. I'm talking about banishing the omnipresent tennis headwrap. These little strips of fabric are not hot, they aren't sexy and they don't have an ounce of swashbuckling, swaggering appeal. They're just silly (and sometimes borderline gross). Between their stringy long hair and pirate-worthy headgear, half the pros look like sporty cousins of Captain Jack Sparrow. So let's all ditch the rags, fellas. It might just be the first step towards getting a proper haircut!
