Do you think it would be likely for someone to have a racquet sponsor like Wilson, but then they used another big company's overgrips like Prince?

well, the most obvious example is any player that uses tourna grip. not really the same as wilson vs. prince (because they each make racquets and all), but is somewhat similar. tourna is very unique, and there aren't any other overgrips that i know of that are comparable to it. i think that if a player didn't like the grips their sponsor produced, they would probably use something they liked more (but would probably use their company's finishing tape so you couldn't tell). if it were someone like fed or nadal, the company would probably make a line of grips that were just what they wanted. maybe others have info on exactly what grips people use on what sticks. i don't really follow all of that to a T, but others could prob shed some light on it.
