When Agassi retired he got the special edition radical....I think that was a nice move by Head to commemorate a great player.

Why didn't Head produce a limited batch of rackets to commemorate Kuerten's retirement? I appreciate that Kuerten did not accomplish as much as Agassi however he was popular worldwide and his racket of choice (PT630) is/was also immensely popular.

Does anyone have any inside info on whether HEAD had any plans for this when he retired??

Many thanks

Agassi was a worldwide phenomenon. People who didn't follow tennis knew who he was. Not so for Kuerten

Yup. Agassi was a household name. Kuerten, not so much. Although I'm all for a PT630 release.

I agree. I'd be even more excited for it than the re-release of the PC600. :shock:

Agassi sold a generations of a racquet line, Kuerten didn't. And Agassi was Agassi.

I think it's because the sales on the Agassi farewell racquets didn't sell as well as expected.

Kuerten didn't even play with a PC600 at the end of his career.
