Standing With Scissors

Posted by gauloises1 on April 28, 2010

Roger and Raf a took part in the inauguration ceremony for the new centre court in Rome today, and at least one of them was rocking some very unfortunate hair:

Meh. Give me dressed-down, chilled-out, Nole-bromancing Rafa any day.

    Yeah, that hair is a bit … hm.

    Although I guess standing next to Sir Hairington himself doesn’t help too much.

      He seems to have a thing with not setting aside enough time for these things so he ends up with wet hair, like he just got out of the shower. I’m at least hoping that’s what happened and that not a lot of time went into this particular hair style…

        This might be it – he’s always late to these functions. There’s a photo from another angle, where you can see his left hand fingers are still heavily taped for his practice session.

        Years ago, all tuxed up and already in a limo going to the Laureus Award ceremony, he did his hair by pouring water all over it from a bottle and slicking it back with his hands.

        Hopeless in grooming.

          but that’s cool about him though and a great counterpart to his counterpart.:)

            neil, don’t get me started on the hair part, it’s getting wider by the day 😛 i fear the day he won’t need the bandana cos there is just too little hair to hold. LOL

              I could get to like it. If I tried.

              anyway, he still has that lovely, broad smile… *grins goofily back at picture*

                i’ve been slowly but surely prepping myself for the day he’ll have to Bruce Willis it 😀

                and thanks for reminding me of the awesomeness that is the rest of him.

    Oh, truly awful hairdo, Rafa.
    Especially next to Fed’s always-pretty hair.

    Even Sir Hairington with his hair slightly wet displays visible scalp:
