    He will look nice on Rafa's gear too instead of Adidas + the real GHOAT!

    who cares what it looks like - it's probably doing a great job shielding his eyes from the sun. Good on him for not giving a damn about how fashionable he looks.

    Someone needs to remind Monsieur Tsonga that visors are for girls and golfers.

    Ok so he's a little confused about his tennis game and his gender identity at this point in his life...give him a break.

    why are visors for girls? As far as I understand, they offer protection from the eyes against sunlight, with minimal visual obstruction. Functionally, they have nothing to do with whether you have breasts or not.

    Dolgopolov should wear the visor. It would be the perfect accessory for his girly hairbands

    Functionally, a striped shirt and spotted pants work as well as any other clothes. Their are just some lines you don't cross.



    ***I'm kidding. I don't see a problem with him wearing a visor.

    Should this thread not have some pics ??? We really need to ascertain your last statement with pics of both articles. We might discover a previously undetermined link.

    Ugh.....I know his tennis game is pretty solid, but eh, he needs some help in the hair/face/everything department. I know he has acne issues, but cmon......

    Cheers!

    Lost Bet Key to Visor Wear

    J-W lost a bet to Oudin and has to wear the visor until he wins a major. Get used to the look! Had Oudin lost, she would have had to wear the shirt Tsonga is supposedly wearing this year at RG (see thread "ugliest shirt evar" in Shoes &Apparel). Tour de France anyone?

    Adidas caps are made for people with pin-heads, so visor is his only option for sun protection.

    Fail...........I have a big head and adidas hats are PLENTY big and roomy on me.

    It's not a question of fit.....

    Tsonga has worn Adidas hats in matches many times before:

    Maybe Tsonga is a trail blazer just like Courier was with the ballcap in the 90's.

    I have no problem with it. A visor is just a head band with a bill. Yeah, the chicks wear them... but if it helps him both stay cool and see better... rock it Jo Willie!

    Did Sir James Blake wear a visor at any time ? OR just a sweat band ? Perhaps i am confusing him for someone else.
    What of Davydenko ?

    Add some Dreads?

    Photoshop some dreads to Tsonga's visor look please in place of the Spurrier thong thing, OK? I'm still suffering upchuck aftertaste.

    He does it to block the rain from getting in his eyes, but also let the rain cool his scalp at the same time. Brilliant!

    Visors for men and shirts with collars should be banned from the ATP Tour.
