Re: Ferrero using HEAD raquects ?

Hey, JC! Ask Andre how to use HEAD raquects ...
Make haircut (to 0) then you will play almost like AA...

Re: Ferrero using HEAD raquects ?

Looks like it Alfonso. He's still on the Prince website, but its the weekend and I suspect no one is there to update it. Looks like Head just took his Prince racquets, blacked out the paint, and gave him a new stencil. I bet he won't really start using Head racquets until next season when he's had some time to work with them and get a frame made his way. Very intersting. Makes me wonder if Coria will come back on the tour with a new racquet too.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

that can't possibly be legal!

I like the hair though but he really needs to put on some weight, he looks so frail

Whether it's legal or not, it's not exactly uncommon.

Robredo's legs look great

Ferrero's are skinny, but he's still

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Ferrero using HEAD raquects ?

i disagree. it's quite uncommon for pros to be caught playing with a racket that they are not contracted to play with. i'm sure that Prince is not amused.

he looks like any other guy with the darker hair. the blonde makes him look better IMO.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Ferrero using HEAD raquects ?

I probably shouldn't have used that wording, since I didn't mean to imply it was common. I just meant that it's not exactly unheard of. Not that this makes it okay.

I think Ferrero looks better as a blonde too. I'm just happy to see him on court without any bandages

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Definitely won't be his racquet since the one he uses has a cross bar.

I think this is all Marat's doing.

How does prince win? Call it the future lawyer in me but I just don't see how it could be legal. Maybe in Spain under their law it's ok

But it doesn't matter, I just find it curious. now JC just needs to win a few matches here and everything will be ok

Re: Ferrero using HEAD raquects ?

It looks to me like there is a cross bar on that racquet, its just hard to see because of the lights and the shadows.

As for the legality of it, if his contract with Prince is over, there isn't squat they can do about it. The black paintjob has removed all Prince markings and the casual fan will only recognize the stencil on the strings (if even that much). If Head has signed JCF to a new contract, they probably have an understanding with him that he will not actually switch racquets until the season is over and he has time to work with them on a design that suits his needs. I once read a post on another board that Mardy Fish is not actually playing with a Dunlop, but an old Wilson model that Dunlop agreed to put a paintjob on. I find that hard to believe and I think that post was soundly disputed. Anyway, racquets are very important tools for tennis players, they take forever to get them the way they want them and it would take almost as long to convince me that any player would switch during the season.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

crossbar or not, that is a HEAD logo.
