If Andy Roddick isn't wearing makeup...

...then what is that brown powdery stuff that gets all over the front of his hat after touching it? I know that sweat turns a hat yellowish/brownish, but not quite that quickly. Any ideas? It's bothering me. :p

:lol: Maybe it's clay? I don't know why he'd want to keep a hat with clay on it, though. It hasn't exactly brought him luck.

But it does look like he is wearing compact. Around his mouth you can really tell. His face just looks weird

yeah I was wondering the same thing. It's definitely the color of foundation or something of the sort and when his forehead sweats it's coming off along the edges. Very strange...

I tought the same in the last match, and currently seems too :lol:

Or maybe he is a fan of self-tanners :tape:

yep self tanner and foundation too :)

Hmmmm....

While I wouldn't be surprised if it was a self-tanner (he's a very metrosexual American male so it makes sense), I don't think he really needs tanning supplies seeing as how tan he already is. I really do think he's wearing make-up. My question is... why? Acne coverup? But on a tennis court? :shrug:

Roddick is metrosexual? I've always thought he tries to be very "macho." Maybe he's a closet metrosexual? ;)

I would say it is rosin of some type or something on his hands since it only appears where the tips of his fingers come intact with his hat.

I considered this but it would take a lot of excess rosin to continually stain the hat, and I would think more would get on the racquet handle as opposed to his hat. Definitely a possibility tho.

Maybe it's not even Roddick at all. Maybe Federer hired a makeup artist to make him look like Roddick, then kidnapped the real Roddick and took his place. In a dramatic scene, Federer will peel off his disguise after winning the final.

Amazing thought! But now - who was that Federer that lost to Canas? For you have brought up an intriguing point! Perhaps Federer never loses: only someone disguised as him does! And he always disguises himself as the winner of the tournament! Roger "Rafael Nadal" Federer has in fact won the French Open two years in a row. GOAT!!!

I know what it looks like and was wondering myself but I find it hard to believe. No foundation can survive that amount of exertion and sweating and if he was caught imagine the piss taking he would have to endure. I can't see why he would risk it. Also he doesn't look like he needs to top up his tan.

I don't know the answer but I can't believe it's makeup

True, but it's the only logical explanation as to why Federer went out in his first match and Roddick hasn't yet lost a set. :p

Roddick isn't metrosexual at all.

metrosexual: a heterosexual male who has a strong aesthetic sense and inordinate interest in appearance and style, similar to that of homosexual males.

By no means is Roddick feminine, but you could make a case for him being metrosexual, or atleast that he has several metrosexual attributes.

Hewitt had it on his hat too. I doubt it's makeup, the towels are white and seem to stay white even after being used.

Strong aesthetic sense? Inordinate interest in appearance and style? This is a guy that wore the same ratty pair of jeans for 3 years straight, wears shirts(when not t's)wrinkled straight from the suitcase, wouldn't know a mani/pedi from a hole in the ground, and routinely wears black undies under his white shorts. Roddick's grooming outside of basic hygiene is a handful of gel.

Roddick is about as metrosexual as I am heterosexual.

It's not makeup - most tennis players' faces look a lot smoother on TV, especially under the lights used in night matches or indoor matches.

As for the brown stain, he could have dropped his cap on the ground. :shrug:

but... in his previous matches appeared with the same brown strain :shrug:

In this day and age, male athletes (same with sports commentators) wear make-up because of the tv cameras (at least the hockey players do; they even pluck their eyebrows for heaven's sake). :lol:

(I've noticed powder, as in foundation, and eyeliner especially.)

I dunno. It looks like he spends an awful lot of time trying to get his hair into that fauxhawk thing. On the otherhand, no one with any aesthetic sense would ever have worn the computer vomit shirt from the '04 US Open.

Exactly!

Roddick is hardly a metrosexual. His dress style is much more UT (University of Texas) frat-jock than fashionable.

No, Gwen Stefani was disguised as Jimmy. Meanwhile, Mirka was off at the concessions stand (disguised as Gavin Rossdale) with Lindsay Davenport (disguised as Tony Roche). Tony Roche was actually disguised as Toni Nadal and had inflitrated the Nadal camp to try to get information.

No, Andy's as far from metrosexual as you can get.

And you know what? I like it that way. I don't think that really suits him.

And besides I bet Roger would get pissy if he wasn't the best dressed one of thier relationship:devil:.

Sinnet, I can kinda see how you would get the impression that he's metrosexual, but I think you might be interpreting the word incorrectly.

Anyway, that's not what this thread is about. As for his face, I'm not sure if it's something like rotin (which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me because it would take a lot of that to continually stain his hat like that) or makeup, but it's not just "dirt" as he never dropped his hat, and the stains began showing up after playing a bit and touching his hat.

We need a brave journalist that is reading to ask in a press conference. :p

i dont think andy is wearing make up. but imagine if he did? most women dont even wear make-up on court. unless its like a "secret" male players do, but dont talk about..lol and besides i think its clay. some people are just superstitious. if its not clay, then i think its dirt. lol this thread is really funny.

and for andy being metro? hmm thats a toughie. he could definitely be a metro, he is cute enough to pass as one. besides we dont really how he really dresses off the court. and theres no shame in being a metro. if a guy knows and can look better if they "fixed" themself up, then why not? better eye candy IMO.

roger is definitely more metro than andy though.

LOL @ this thread, thanks. :)

The Roger assessment rings true more than Roddick being metro. Roger looks like he makes a conscious effort, unlike Roddick who may look a certain way by default. To me he just seems more All-American frat boy. Roddick looks just fine, but without a sense of style defined enough to earn the label.

Ryan Seacrest on the other hand....:tape:

The commentators were talking about the 'desert dust' on the court and the balls, so maybe that's what the brown stains are that are showing up on all the players' white hats. Handling dusty...balls + adjusting hats = stains :confused:
