Slapping on the sun cream may be second nature to Australians, but it seems some of the world's leading players are taking unnecessary risks by not wearing any protection against skin cancer at the opening grand slam of the year.Annacone admits he did not use sun cream in his playing days but said he was now well aware of the dangers posed by avoiding protection.Spain's Felix Mantilla, who was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2006 and now runs his own skin-cancer foundation in Barcelona, would like the ATP Tour to adopt a system where players can have someone reapply cream at the end of each set.Rafter said that he knew plenty of players who still went out to play unprotected.
