Probably a silly question (scratch that, very silly question), but who on tour sports the backwards hat? Add players and we’ll have a list on here.

The List:

John Isner
Karen Khachanov
Diego Schwartzman
Denis Shapovalov
Fernando Verdasco
Lucas Pouille
Andreas Seppi
Adrian Mannarino
Malik Jaziri
Joao Sousa
Jan-Lennard Struff
Dennis Kudla
Feliciano Lopez
Maxim Marterer
Taro Daniel
Ilya Ivashka
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez
Jack Sock

The List Of Shame as far as I'm concerned! There is nothing naffer than wrearing a backwards cap. Do you ever see any of the top players do it?

Most of those on the list are only occasional offenders. The chief culprits are Isner and Khachanov. Never do you see them without the stupid backwards cap, even when indoors! It's about time their coaches and family took them to one side and told them straight: "Lose the cap, John/Karen. You don't need it and you look so much better without it. It's a bad habit and it's high time you snapped out of it!" :rolleyes:

I blame Lleyton Hewitt!!:cautious:

The last several times I saw Verdasco & Sock, they weren't wearing it. The only time I ever seen Isner without it is in the "tube" in London recently. He must've felt nekkid.

Verdasco wears it sometimes and it’s always the same hat. I think it’s the hat he already had when he got his deep run in Australian open years ago

Marc-KEVIN Goellner. Only because I was a fan back in the day and I remember he liked to use his middle name. Or maybe it was part of his first name ? :p
marc kevin, indeed !
i liked him too ! he had some nice wins in 1993 :)
too bad he didn't bring it to the next level during the following years... :confused:

last challenger win was in bukhara in 2003... 75 67 76 in the final against baghdatis ! (2 players i like) :)
seems he (successfully) tried to qualify for a future tournament (in turkey) in 2015, by the way !

PS: would have liked to see lendl wear his legionnaire cap backwards :)
