His answer, of course, was backwards in an effort to keep the hair out of his face, but fear not, Shapovalov has a plan moving forward: “I was trying to ask Roger what hair gel is he using [to keep] his hair perfectly in place every time.”

Police first said the knife-wielding attacker — who is still at large — was a burglar, then in Jan. called him a blackmailer.
