Re: Change (slight) in racket preference

i never liked head rackets but i guess Wilson is becoming a bit too popular with the KFed racket and its giving off a "only K-thing is a good racket all our others suck and if you're not Federer, you suck" aura. OR back a few months, replace the new one with the n.sixone.


Today i break rackets, or tomorow we die
