Yes, tennis superstar Roger Federer is about to compete for his eighth Wimbledon—a new world record for a timeless tennis giant.
But let’s focus on what’s really important here: his new haircut. Could it be the end to all that we hold near and dear in tennis?
The internet certainly thinks so.
Federer turned up at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart this week, after a two-month hiatus, with a somewhat…more summery vibe.
Gone were the long, luscious, sweep-a-hand-through-me locks. Instead, his hair was shorter—and (near-surfer) blonder.

For while some love the aesthetic:
