Stan Smith was balding, wasn't he? Or maybe he just had fine hair.
Maybe not a "great champion," but he won some majors.

Now we know the real reason why Roddick and Hewitt didn't
realize their full potential!

Two slams doesn't quite cut it for the "great champions" list, I'm
afraid (not counting doubles). But notice that he grew a mustache to
compensate. Stan understood. :)

If I remember the old thread, it was cap wearers, not just backward
cap wearers. Or has the hypothesis been made more specific?

Q. In days gone by you used to wear a cap indoors, outdoors, day,
night, whatever. On a scalding day like today, you didn't have one on.
What was your thinking?

ANDY MURRAY: I used to always wear a cap for matches, and didn't used
to practice with one really at all. I wanted to get a bit more sort of
continuity in what I was doing. You know, I just felt like when I was
playing, if I had really long hair I would still wear a cap because it
would obviously get in my eyes. But when I'd keep my hair short, you
know, I don't think - for me anyway, it doesn't make a huge
difference. Even when the sun's there, the cap doesn't really protect
you that much.

I don't know, it's just something that I changed. Since I stopped
wearing a cap, I've played much better.

Well, it was both if you read the entire thread:
http://groups.google.com/group/rec.sport.tennis/browse_thread/thread/103f1a=
ed9fdaf20c?q=3Dgasquet+cap

Cap wearers in general bear the curse, but the backward types are even
more marginalized.

Like backward-cap wearers, balding players traditionally have not been
great champions. The open era's top slam winners have been not simply
unbald, but in many cases emphatically hirsute. When McEnroe's
hairline started seriously receding, his slam wins dried up. When
Sampras began aggressively losing hair, he had the good sense to
retire. And note that both Mac and Pete had impressive heads of hair
when building their careers. Only Agassi is the exception, and he had
so much hair everywhere as a youth that his follicle karma probably
persisted even after his pate appeared. Most baldsters are more like
Davydenko or [Futility, thy name is]Ljubicic -- always staring up
enviously at their hairy superiors. Murray should be concerned.

How do you think this will affect global warming?.
