why do some pros have extra stencils on their rackets, for example Djokovic in this picture:http://delivery.viewimages.com/xv/73626889.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1932BBB80AB57C97602F334C47C49574001 4C9A4FB5D0EE306D
do they just think it looks better or does it signify anything else?

One stencil is for the racket manufacturer and one, usually the bottom one is for the string manufacturer.

Another example:
Pete Sampras had the Wilson "W" and then towards the bottom he had the Babolat double black bars for the strings.

Err...not necessarily wilson and technifibre. The W might just be for his racquet.

It really doesn't tell you what he's USING. It tells you what he's ADVERTISING.
