Federer joins Guga as only active multiple GS winners to have curly hair/headbands

Another impressive achievement by Federer.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Mac isn't active unfortunately. When Andy Murray puts on a headband he'll soon be the 3rd

It's curly near the bottom, around where the knot is tied in the bandanna. Cut me a little slack on this, OK?

Re: Federer joins Guga as only two active GS winners to have curly hair and headbands

you're hideously bored today aren't you?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Mac may have to accept a wild card into the main draw in order to join these two at the pinnacle of style.

Carlos Moya's hair is curly...ish

Greg Rusedski has wavy hair, is a GS finalist and wears an aliceband. Does theat count? *she asked hoping the ever-so-slight rulebending would be overlooked*
