    Nadal definitely has diffuse thinning all over the top of his head, a la Pete Sampras. Federer has a thick mane, but it has no doubt receded; that's why he wears the headband.

    You know who has a perfect, thick head of hair? That's right .... SAFIN.

    Who cares? Look at Federer ......a guy who is as ugly as quentin tarrentino and dresses like a girl.....still makes boatloads and can get any woman he wants.

    Both parents contribute. Nothing related to genetics is a simple dichotomy of "you get x from your father and you get y from your mother". In some cases the paternal side will be dominant; in other cases the maternal side will be dominant but in all cases its an interaction between the two. I read somewhere male pattern baldness is caused by an interaction of 5 different genes.

    My father is really really bald, and so are all of his 5 brothers (to differing degrees). The bast-rd teased me when I was a teenager that my hair would fall out. I kept waiting for it to happen. I'm 38 now and I've still got a massive head of hair. Its just luck of the draw.

    That's simply not true.

    Yes - for those genetically prone to male pattern baldness it is triggered by testosterone; however, for men without the genetic predisposition for male pattern baldness their levels of testosterone have nothing to do with it.

    I've noticed his hair on top thinner this year. He's always pulling at it and shaking it like a dog out of water.... no wonder he is going bald. Lol.

    I'm amazed at the amount of knowledge/myth debunking about hair loss that's going on here. Good for you, guys. It's fascinating.

    Who occasionally plays tennis at the community center. Otherwise the picture wouldn't make sense. Oh wait, I can't see the racquet. Ok, no tennis.

    Edit: yes, I can spot the racquet. A lesbian south-american gang leader and yoga teacher who occasionally plays tennis at the community center.

    Am I going to be banned for all the stereotyping?

    I apologize in advance. :-|

    Come to think of it, if you combine all these different stereotypes it actually creates a very non-stereotypical character. I guess I'm safe.

    Wow, he really does!

    So he's also a German WWII officer and supervillain in his spare time.

    LLOL...I would say that Quentin Tarrentino's normal face would be a caricature of Fed's.

    I absolutely disagree with the "arrogant" part.

    We have a lot of remedies for baldness in India. I am sure tushylovesrafa can give a roundup of the top ten. Rafa should meet Swami Ramdev. :D

    Well, you never see his mother anywhere. Could it be because she's a jackal?

    His mother was very much in the stands during the USO and a very attractive lady, that too.

    ^ Amazing how well Rafa has done with that puny body. If he lifted weights, he could come back and win a few more slams.

    Him and Muzza are definitely balding. Murray jokes about it all the time, wondering who will lose all their hair first. Reeshard is looking a bit thin in top too.

    Djokovic's lego hair is clearly enough thickness for the tour.

    even Federer is losing his hair. It used to be so thick. Hair today, gone tomorrow :-(
