Was looking through the Getty images and came across this picture of Pat Rafter using an unusual looking racquet with the Prince logo on it. Date says it's 1998, at the Lipton Tennis Champs in Florida.

Anyone got any idea what it is ? Reminds me a bit of the Bosworth that Navaratilova used last year, but a smaller headsize.

look like a Fox racquet used by Gilbert

Didn't Rafter use a red Prince Respone all way thru his two US Open in 97 & 98?

hlkimfung, that's what I thought. Was only curious as Rafter was always seen to have very strong brand loyalty - one of his biggest selling points- so it would seem strange for him to use anything other than Prince.
