Frank Dancevic's hair — fulsome, wild and richly brown — has to be among the most impressive in tennis. It sort of sprouts from his scalp, each strand having a mind of its own. During matches, a white headband just barely succeeds in restraining his unruly bustle.

The resident of Niagara Falls, Ont., has not had it cut in seven months.

"I'm trying to see how far it can go, but it gets annoying because I have really curly hair," Dancevic said after beating David Nalbandian at Wimbledon on Monday.

"If I don't put the perfect conditioner in it," he added, spreading his hands wide from his head, "it kind of goes out here."
