Is the "backwards-hat-indoors" look quite stupid?

YES Haas, Hewitt - that means you two!

And others, I imagine :rolleyes:

Does Roddick still do this? I know that he has commited the offense in the past.

I should also include, that the "visor indoors" look, is also stupid.

:p

I think it's fine... I'd assume they wear a hat or something to keep the sweat out of their eyes and off their face so it's fine.

so they are the only players on the tour who sweat :rolleyes:

we fashion experts from the fashion tennisthread on a certain board came to conclussion that it always looks stupid except on three year old boys! :o

Perhaps they consider their headgear a part of their outfit, no matter where they're playing?

And doesn't Hewitt consider his hats lucky?

To the defence of players who were hats indoors:
The lights are annoying. Though i cant defend the backwards-hat

I agree, the lights seem to be annoying.
Anyway, although is kinda stupid that they're using them there, well is up to them.:o

yes Becca, you are definately not alone...
it looks very stupid

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who thinks so ;)

Now, I somewhat understand for Haas- he has long hair, and it holds it back.

But really - when I saw him in Toronto, at noon - broad day night - he had NOT hat and a pony tail.

His third round, a night match - backwards hat!

WTF?

I know that with Lleyton it started as a superstition after he wore his hat backwards when he beat Agassi in Adelaide.
What's Tommy's excuse?

Who makes up supersitions in an attempt to look ugly? :confused:

:D

Hewitt uses the same hat all the time. Its been ages since I see the same dirt in its back side. eww. :p

Its obviously a superstition.

I agree visors are ugh!
Although, some girls look good in them. :p

LMAO! They are sooo much better than visors!

I think it is something that some tennis players are so used to that they are not feeling comfortable without. Like I so used to wear my sunglass when I am wearing contacts that even on cloudy days, I still have my sunglass on.

Tommy just needs to cut his hair, then he wouldnt have to worry about it. :)

When Tommy had short hair, he wasn't wearing a cap.

No idea why they continue wearing them, I'm used to seeing Lleyton in one, so I don't pay attention to it. But Tommy... he looks so much better without a cap IMO. He had to wear it some time ago because his hair was sticking out and I guess he couldn't make a ponytail out of it and then probably got used to wearing a cap and felt uncomfortable without one...

Tommy's been wearing that cap backwards ever since he was a kid
he must have grown up watching the KING of backward Cap Wearers ....... Marc-Kevin Goellner (i saw him last week and yes he was wearing it backwards indoors :rolleyes: )

Marc-Kevin Goellner is still alive?

Actually, I think it's just a few years old, from when Alex Corretja beaned him in the face with a ball.

And Becca, have you SEEN Lleyton in a head band? It's not a pretty sight. :p

Andy Roddick has just had a hair-cut, so don't worry about him.

Roddick needs to lose both.

Hewitt looks better with a headband.

barely just ;)
he lost in three sets in Nottingham last week 6-7 in 3rd.

I'm sure he was the inventor of the backwards cap on court.
