The Hat, The Visor or no head wair you decide

I personally thought Andy looked the best with his Reebok visor and crazy hair. Like the way he had it for the US OPEN 2002. That looks the coolest...

Which one looks the best Hat, Visor, or no head wair?

I'm not crazy about the visor. The red hat actually doesn't look bad on him. I'd a tasteful cap or nothing at all.

NO VISOR. I am ok with a regular baseball cap, I do not like the trucker hat, and I'd rather him not wear anything.

I don't particularly care for the visor either. I guess if I had to choose I'd prefer no headgear at all.

The visor was a great "I dont' care what you think" statement.

Actually, I think that he went to the visor because the traditional baseball cap kept the heat in his head and when Brad didnt' like the visor, he went to a trucker hat because it has more ventilation, but what I really don't get is why truckers wear trucker hats. ;)

And Jackson, what is the antecedent for "it" in your last post?

Gilbert made Roddick put the visor away. Brad says that the crazy hair and visor makes him look too flashy. Roddick needs to put his head down and get to work. So trucker hat it is...

Thanks for the picture, Ryan.

Somebody posted that on the 2004 pictures thread.

Yeah, everyone knows that Brad made Andy get rid of the visor, but I don't think Brad demanded that Andy wear a trucker hat. I think that was Andy's choice for the ventilation.

I thought Brad made him ditch the visor because it made him look like a 'pineapple' and hence no one would take him seriously?

Personally, VISOR all the way - he looks so damn haht with that spikey pineapple hair. And headband's are just wrong - anybody else be reminded of those aerobic class days, with women in lycra? *shivers* That was scary.

With Brad around, I'd say there's a 99.9% chance of not seeing a visor, considering that's the first thing Brad changed before anything else when he became Andy's coach.

I hate the visor, not because of the way it looks, but because it really does make him look like a punk teenager. And that's not the image he wants to promote for himself anymore, I wouldn't think.

Aww, I think he looks cute with the visor, his hair sticking up all wild ... and that's probably why he won't be wearing it again. :lol: cute = non-threatening; a kid. I watch Andy play with his visor and he doesn't have nearly as intimidating presence on the court as he does now with his dark blues and trucker hat.

Without the hat he just looks like he's missing something, I'm so used to seeing him with a hat on.

Deboogle!.
01-20-2004, 09:40 PM
he DOES look cute with the visor and like you said, that is the problem lol

I like it when he doesn't wear any "headgear" but I think he looks like a little kid there too. I'd prefer a regular old baseball cap I guess. Backwards once in a while would be fun too ;)

01-21-2004, 10:26 AM
lol bad luck Ryan.

Again, I love the visor because pineapple hair = hot Andy and I'm talking I like the visor in terms of physical appearance off court as opposed to on court. I'd still love the visor on court but like Deb said, he's just less intimidating that way so I guess I'll be begrudged and shut up about that. Either way, it's not coming back whilst Brad is around - not that he can talk, I mean, um, Metallica?

star
01-21-2004, 11:59 AM
I'm with you on the visor, Jag.

But, I think maybe it made players snicker at him. And Brad is probably right. So I have to decide..... looks or results?

Ok......... I'm still deciding. ;)

Snicker away - he'll only kick their ass on court :nerner:

Speaking of Brad Gilbert, did anyone hear about that diss he made about Justine Henin Hardene in an aussie paper recently? He said that Justine wouldn't be able to beat the 1,000 ranked man at AO! :eek:

Now why would Gilbert go and insult Justine like that and try to stir up yet another boring gender war in tennis? :rolleyes:

Deboogle!.
01-23-2004, 05:46 PM
lol!! It sounds to me like #1 Brad's comments were taken out of context and #2 weren't intended to be insulting. I mean people on this board in a thread about pretty much the same thing said pretty much the same thing as Brad.

And really, tact doesn't seem to be a big part of Brad's personality. I guess I'm just really ambivalent towards him so what he says doesn't strike me as odd. I've just accepted the fact that he has chronic diarrhea of the mouth :lol:

Havok
01-23-2004, 05:48 PM
1st of all, what Brad said was right. and you know with these inteviews that they ALWAYS ask those stupid questions. he did say no disrespect to Justine and she's a really good player, but let's face it he's right. now you'll hear Justine say oh i don't care what he thinks. she should just end it by saying that he's right because men and women's tennis is different, and that's it, this story that's been blown out of proportion will come to an end

Deboogle!.
01-23-2004, 05:51 PM
well that's what Justine did say.... they had her on ESPN last night and she was basically like "ok whatever I just go out and play my best and try to win" or whatever lol. It's always the media that blows stupid stuff out of proportion :mad:

star, do you think it's putting heat on Andy? It doesn't seem to... if he weren't so famous a coach from coaching andre and stuff, maybe... but Brad seems to have a personality of his own and doesn't seem that connected to Andy. or maybe I'm just not looking at it right lol

You may not think it's connected to Andy, but believe me, if Brad runs his mouth about guys on the circuit, those guys will see it as very much connected to Andy.

Well he's a tennis coach, not a model. And I can see what Star's saying but I also think Brad and Andy aren't seen as best friends. They're just coach, and player. So it shouldn't harm him too much.
