Rafael Nadal has arguably completed the first part of his inevitable comeback by sorting out his aging scalp.
There have long been whispers in image conscious circles about Nadal’s thinning hair, which was part of his extremely marketable arsenal of good looks.

However, the King of Clay showed up a few day’s ago at a Tommy Hilfiger meet with a rather suave looking new doo. While rumours of a hair transplant remain just that, perhaps this is evidence that he has indeed had some work done.
