Do you have a game like both players? :confused:


I mean my favorite players, their rackets don't fit my game at all, so I don't get why people run for rackets because a certain player is playing with them. :?

Do you realize that the purchase of either or both of these racquets is no guarantee that you will reach the Australian Open final in your lifetime?

I mean consciously realize...

How was that one??? AH ... "you sir are a gentleman and a scholar". What a coincidence I would take her as well...but maybe DomStar7 is "playing for the other team" ??

How old are you? Djoko is playing with a clone of his old Head racquet (PT 630). He said that himself.

haha very funny, but your wrong.
how come if you look at his racquet when he played tsonga they were exactly the same??? it probably has the same tension and weight as the head.

But it's a paintjob. he uses a custom mold of the aforementioned head racquet. wilson pays him to let them paint the K blade paintjob on it, so that they get more business due to his recent success.

and also, the chances that their racquets are identical as you think, are so long against it that you're better off just playing the lottery..

but no, djokovic uses a paintjobbed head racquet.

okay this discussion about djokovic's real racquet has been done numerous times. the search function can help answer many questions.

Many pros PAINT THEIR RACQUETS (PJ) to be whatever their racquet company sponsor wants them to push.

For example Nadal uses and APD painted to look like and APDC.

If you use the search function you can find many discussions as to what racquets pros are REALLY using (and some disagreements of course lol). That being said Ivanovic does use that racquet.

It looks like Ivanovic (and Hewitt) is using the real RQiS 1 Tour, so DomStar7, go with that one. If it's good enough for the pros ...

Read that...

And here is a quote from BreakPoint:

Companies copy each others racquets all the time. Tecnifibre copied the custom Dunlop racquet that Blake/Haas/Berdych uses to make the T-Fight 335/320. Dunlop/Slazenger copied the Wilson 6.1 Classic to make Henman's and Fish's racquets with Slazenger and Dunlop paintjobs on them. And Wilson copied the Head PT630 to make the custom racquets for Djokovic, Mathieu, etc.

I don't think racquet companies patent the molds nor shapes of their racquets. They do patent technologies, like Wilson's PWS, which is why Henman's and Fish's Slazenger/Dunlop paintjobs of the PS 6.1 Classic copy did not have the PWS. Companies can copy or reverse engineer a competitor's racquet and design a mold and make almost the same racquet themselves, but what they can't do is to take the actual racquet of the competitor and just paint over it to look like your own racquet. That's why Head sued Dunlop a few years ago when Safin signed with Dunlop and Dunlop took his PC600's and painted them to look like MW200G's.

Search the forums. The racquet weight is 325g unstrung and balance is 31 cm unstrung. Pretty much a bone stock Head Pro Tour 630.

There was an article that said that the Head Pro Tour 630 is used by most Head pros under their pain job. In fact it's probably the most popular racquet on tour.
Maybe if we make enough noise than Head or Wilson will start selling it. Head seems to be brain dead so it's unlikely but Wilson did release Federer's racquet so maybe they will do the same with Djoko's racquet.
