i just saw Youzhny play nadal. He been using a Head LM instinct for years, then he switched to a Head Flexpoint instinct (pj?) then this year he been using a head micro gel extreme pro (pj?). Now in rome he's using a Head no name. What's up with that? What's his racquet?

youzhny doesn't, not any more. he switched to a new, blacked out racquet in davis cup. check out pics of him on getty images if you like

I'm thinking its still the instinct xl. saw the pictures and the frame still looks like the same thickness as the instinctand it has 16 mains and 19 crosses.

I have seen him practising in Hamburg and was like 1 metre away from him when he picked up a ball. The racket he was using did not have any liquid metal ridges on it Whatever that means :)

Gasquet has LM Ridges on his grommet strip but he's meant to have changed.!

I saw him in Montecarlo and Rome, he's got definitely not an istinct under the black, it seemed to be a radical or prestige, I assume he will got the new radical microgel wheh the model will be released.

Mauresmo is already playing with the microgel radical paintjob, so if youzny was using that stick, his would probably be painted as well...

just wanted to chime in that he used the microgel extreme paintjob the tournament before he used the blacked out paintjob...i think thats kinda funny, especially since he still had the head stencil on his blacked out frame...its not like his contract ran out or anything, he just went all black...weird

I didn't think it would happen( thought he would just use a paintjob), but, at Roland Garros, Youzhny has converted to the Microgel Pro and winning!
