he appears to be using Federer's "nCode" racquet. Sampras even said that he was using Federer's racquet in an interview before the first exhibition match that he played.

Comparison shots.

Is it just me, or do his babolat stripes look pretty dumb?

I don't know, they'd look pretty smart if he's getting VS 17 for free.

He did, the only time I have ever seen him in pictures of a tounament of some kind that he did not have the Babolat stripes was in the 2006 JP Morgan Exo against Jim Courier.

I hate to revive this old post, but Sampras was using a ncode pro staff.
