Delpo has been using the same racquets since 2009!

Some rather odd news from the Estoril Open via TennisTV's Nick Lester -!/nicklester:

Wilson rep here in Estoril just told me Del Potro is down to last 3 frames of rackets he used when he won US open in 2009,refuses to..
change despite practising regularly in off season with different ones,comes to tournaments and goes back to his original ones..
apparently was given a new batch of 12/15 rackets just before US open in 09 and down to 3/4 now but doesn't want to switch
wilson rep told me Del potro has 3/4 rackets with him at this present time and no more
Don't get this story at all...

Same racquets since 2007-2009. 2010 he had a different one. Then the start of last year, he went back to 07-09 Wilson, and he's been using it ever since. Perhaps a sign of good luck IMO. The racquet has lead to his resurgence twice after all.

No words can describe me.
Without me, it would be just aweso.
No shit.

Baggy would smash that before you can blink

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
