Nadal is bald...

This is an amazing thread. A non issue, but evidence what affect media and advertising have on fandom, generally.

OK, let's get a few things straight here.

Nadal was never classically handsome. He has a weak chin, and baby features. His hair isn't gonna save him anyway.
Federer was NEVER classically handsome either. Big nose (he seems to have had work done on it), NO LIPS (You can barely see his teeth when he smiles).

Neither are ugly. But movie star looks they do not possess.

Neither would turn heads if they were normal people.

They also don't contain 1 milligram of cool in them. Not one.

The handsomest man, who's cool adds +2 to his looks, is Wawrinka, followed by Ferrer.
Saying Stan is good looking has confirmed that you really do need glasses. I have seen all the top players in the flesh up close several times. I have been to press conferences and spoken to them and I have seen the reaction of fans when they are around and Nadal is very attractive and gets the most attention. He is taller in the flesh and slimmer.

The first time I was going to see him up close I thought he wouldn't live up to the image i had of him but he more than did that. He is like the pied piper wherever he goes.

Nadal had great youthful beauty but he's just above average now and it's not just a question of hair. People follow a pied piper because they are entranced.

Where did you come with such insightful thoughts about Djokovic hair density, reciding line, grayness. From your arse I guess:confused:
Really some people here and their omniscient theories:eek:
Maybe we don't see something that he does!? Maybe he has a third eye!?

keep your day job....
Not sure what crawled up your ass, but no further contact needs to be exchanged between us for a considerable length of time.

I might also point out, that all of those things actually did happen.... So I'm not wrong...

Either way, go **** yourself.

Nadal has an Antonio Banderas thing about him though I'd never call him classically good looking. Being latin maybe helps. Wawrinka somehow seems to look alright even if he looks like a rodent at other times. Nadal going bald is just testosterone, nothing to see there.

Here are Rafa and Antonio Banderas together (at Roland Garros in 2007):

Who’s hot! Sharapova, Nadal voted sexiest again
By Ron Cioffi
Thanks to our very loyal and active readers and for the thousands of votes we received. We love the responses.

Maria Sharapova is on a roll, winning now for the third straight year. However, boyfriend Grigor Dimtrov, who was voted sexiest last year, came in second. He lost out to three-time winner Rafa Nadal, who also was the hottest in 2011 & 2012.

Tennis’ hottest couple, Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimtrov, won it in 2014.

The awards were named for Ivanovic and Safin whose notable sexiness helped them capture the awards for the first five years of the poll, 2005-2009. They were declared ineligible after the awards were named for them.

Nadal's time in the sun both on the court and on the island has given his skin a weather-beaten, prematurely aged look.

There are more serious issues people have to deal with. Spare a thought for people who are diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, it's a death sentence from day 1 basically. My friend was born with it and is only still with us because he has someone else's lungs now, most people aren't that lucky. That's just one example. And you want society to take going bald more seriously ???
Your points are taken and I'm sorry for your friend. There are so many things in this world that are bad that are incurable. Cancer anyone? I stand by my post.There is a reason that the Mens Hair loss industry is worth over $3.5 billion. Going bald affected me deeply. It affects many others in the same way. Anyways I'm obviously being way to serious about in a light hearted discussion. Rafa needs a cure for that Forehand before the hair loss in my opinion.

Many males are genetically predisposed to baldness, with some getting bald in their30s already. My father had next to no hair on the top of his head by the time he turned 35, I'll probably get bald before 40 too. Nothing wrong with that, it doesn't even have to look bad. Baldassi looked pretty nice, I think.
It is passed down from your mothers side of the family. Your father has nothing to do with it if you become bald.

He has lost a lot of youthful facial fat. Seems pretty young to happen, but it happened to him.

ok now i understand

but caps are too expensive where i live it cost 50 thousand dollars
yea, that hair transplant is not cheap. But it is worth it. cause once you transplant that hair from your back or side of your head to top of your head where hair loss is,,, you never lose that hair ever again......
