I know Fabrice started using his own, customized racquet at the end of 2003 becasue of elbow problems; does anyone know some stuff about his current racquet (its not a brand-name racquet)?
Thanks

He now designs rackets for Inesis. This is the racket brand of a UK based sports distributer called Decathlon. fabrice has helped design a range of frames for Decathlon.

Hi william, Decathlon is a French group with worldwide outlets.I have seen the racquet by Inesis and didn't see anything special about it.Reports from teachers and advanced juniors is that it is not worth the effort..Hope this helps and have a great day..

I remember during the Aussie Open where they were showing Santoro's racquet being strung backstage during a match. it was against safin i think but im not sure. Anyways the black paint that was on it didnt block of some of the paint scheme underneath and you could faintly see some Triple Threat graphics at 10 and 2 oclock. i thought someone would have caught it and posted on it right after...so it might have been a prince racquet painted black since prince has those kind of things at 10 and 2. i think major racquets might have graphics at 10 and 2 as well...i dunno

decathlon paid him 155,00 euros for a 3 year contract runs out in June.

A waste of money i think, leave the geriatrics and sponsor the upcoming talent....

Wasn't he with Head? Why would he drop a Head contract for $186,527?

(1 Euro = 1.2034 Dollars, currently)
