Default Rafa should grow a beard

Every year at the French Open, I've noticed Nadal lets his beard grow out a little bit.

Not much, much it speaks to my point.

The power of the beard. Even with that little scuffle, he plays well. Usually in other events he is clean shaven, sapping him of his beard power.

Rafa, grow it out, man. Not to George Bastl levels, of course

but around Safin levels.

Why not to Bastl level? That beard was awesome. It's a shame that nobody today has the balls to try it.

Not sure Nadal can actually grow out his beard that far. The man has no chest hair. Federer on the other hand could grow hairy forests.

Roddick at Wimbledon 04 had a beard.

http://www.sportphotogallery.com/con..._10-search.jpg

Played pretty well that tournament.

Fed never really grew it out.

Not to mention Bjorn Borg.

as soon I read the thread title I was thinking 'Bastl level', so I'm disappointed in your discouragement

Anyway, yes, plus an afro.

I guess while it's fitting for monks, for pretty much anyone anyone else it looks terrifying

There is no salvaging Rafa's looks. He's just plain hideous.

If he does it gradually, it will look like the hair is just migrating from the top of his head to his face. It would shift the attention away from the balding.
