    It seems to work for everything else, no?

    It's quite funny how it keeps working too, especially against one particular player who has the talent and ability to do anything on a tennis court :lol:

    Sebastian Nadal has a decent head of hair, so we'd need to see his maternal grandfather to make a reasonable prediction.

    His maternal grandfather is bald. Typical case of male pattern baldness inherited through the mother's side.

    Waiting for the haters to claim this is due to steroids though. :)

    I wonder if Nadal keeps going bald if he will lose some of you creepy stalking fans?

    He's been looking like that since 2009. It's just a bad angle and his hair is sweaty. Plus he's stressed out.

    I guess every player is bound to have a creepy stalker or two. I don't particularly think Nadal has too many of those. On the other hand, I seem to remember Fed having some of the creepiest posters ever, like that guy that used to refer to Fed like Sexi Roger or something of that nature.

    The fact is that most Nadal threads are started by his haters, which I will not name, but which are well known. If you count them as Nadal stalkers, I suppose I could agree with you. When you don't like a player, yet devote so much of your time starting threads about him, that's kind of a creepy obsession.

    Opinion. Nadal's hair has looked like that since 2009. You'll see other "Nadal going bald" threads on here all the way back to the World Tour Finals 2009. Still the same. He just has funny looking greasy hair. :lol:

    Amazing resemblance. I wonder if at the end of some tournament he will start chasing Fed around a labyrinth wielding his racket.

    He might've if he was actually balding! :lol: His hair has been the exact same since 2009. He just has sweaty stringy hair.

    Nadal has very fine hair. Whether or not he's losing it is another story, but it looks thin because it is.

    90 percent of us go completely bald sooner or later. Who cares.

    I just hope he's not gonna shave his hair like Agassi. Not a big fan of the bald look.

    If going bald bothers Nadal he can buy himself a very expensive head of hair and look fantastic without ever having to do anything except have uncle Toni place it artistically on his head every morning.

    currently implants result in a very unnatural look. Nadal had better not do this.

    Going bald is just something most of us will go through. I'm 23 and I can tell my hair isn't as thick as when I was 17... it happens. If I lose it, I lose it.. i'm not gonna hide under hats, wigs, or hairplugs.

    I can't believe people still believe that "baldness is inherited from the maternal side of the family" myth. You wish it was that simple.

    My dad still has a full head of hair at 54 and very thick. My mom's side of the family is bald and Ive lost a lot of hair since my teen years and have been thinning out since 20 and I'm 29 now

    I figure it has to be related to the maternal side .

    Hair is damaged by testosterone. So you can't have both great hair and high libido at the same time.

    Sure you can. How many male adult film stars have full heads of hair?

    Here's a hint: more than those that dont.

    The libido-hair loss connection myth has been debunked time and time again.

    Can hot water on the scalp make you go bald?

    Depends on how hot it is :shock:

    A normal hot shower.. no. If you dump scalding hot water on your scalp, you will get serious burns and surely damage your hair follicles to the point of no repair.

    Balding is a sign of HGH abuse.

    Being twice his age and always knowing where he is, what he is doing etc is what I consider creepy.

    Oh good. He was banned. It was about time.

    As for Nadal balding, well who cares. It's a natural process. as long as it doesn't go too early he'll be fine :).
