It’s – well, a small trend?
All of a sudden we’re seeing ATP Tour players who have decided to … lighten up for the summer.
Notably – and most oddly – Richard Gasquet showed up in Cincinnati looking like he dipped his head into a bleach pot.
As well, doubles specialist Henri Kontinen of Finland went vaaleaverinen.
And France’s Benoit Paire is carrying on from his conversion earlier in the summer.
But a big shout to Dominic Thiem – who seems to have been the originator of this exactly three summers ago (and our eyes still haven’t recuperated).
