  • A new thatch the key to good form?

    There might be a correlation between good form and hair growth, especially for athletes suffering from male pattern baldness. From personal experience, hair loss can have a devastating effect on your psyche; such as, loss in self-confidence or even depression.

    Modern society places a lot of emphasis on image, and often prioritizes looks when judging a person rather than their character. And hair loss in particular, has a significant impact on a way a man looks. Men suffering from hair loss may feel inferior to men with hair and may spend a lot of their time worrying and being preoccupied with their looks rather than concentrating on the tasks on hand.

    This is no different for sports stars that are under constant media attention, often appearing in newspapers magazines and television. Athletes suffering from hair loss are probably distracted due to hair loss, thus, having a negative effect on their performance. I remember Virender Sehwag (Indian cricket player) being in a form slump when he began losing his hair but after treatment he returned to a rich vein of form. On the other hand, Irfan Pathan's (Indian cricket bowler) form slump coincided with the receding of his hair line.

    However, I disagree with your example of David Tua. Tua does not suffer from male pattern baldness; in fact, he had plenty of hair when fighting Lennox Lewis but still lost. Tua's poor form is due to his age/fitness and his inability to deal with a taller opponent's jab, thus being continually outboxed and falling behind on the score sheets.
