I blame Nike tbh. No way can you perform your best in the far too large and flappy tents that Nike has been giving players since the restart.

I considered that at first, but Stebe's moustache looks bigger. Just stealing and glueing on de Minaur's wouldn't suffice for that.

maybe he grew one and glued Alex's on top of it. That sounds like it would make quite a big moustache.
