If you have a look on the ATP site, it shows a pic of Haas using some Head Prestige in Houston...

Wow that's interesting, wonder if there's a conflict of interest there.

This is similar to that time when Arnaud Clement used a Wilson K-Factor with a Head stencil. Hah.

Might be a comparable situation to arnaud clement as of late...using a wilson frame witha head stencil, now just using the wilson. maybe haas is making his slow change to the head pj

Also Haas used the Pro Tour 630 with the paint Job of the Premier Tour.

That is why Haas only used the paint job.:twisted:

I would think he would be obligated under his contract to put the Dunlop stencil on any racquet he plays with in a tournament. I'm just surprised he can play with a Head racquet under his contract...

i have a feeling his situation is similar to something that happenned to Radek Stepanek last year for the Masters Cup. Maybe he lost his rackets through airline or something like that, then asked another player for their rackets used his own string then stenciled it

Or yes maybe he thought he wasn't going to play and when they made him to play he had to borrow
But with clement he is still using the K-blade ...wierd

i think that prestige, will be suitable for his style, hopefully it would be a good decision for him....

I remember that! I heard somewhere that he had to borrow a couple of Djokovic's K-Factors and a pair of socks because his luggage hadn't arrived yet.

he just didn't take it cause he thought he will have no chance to play the match

Maybe he lost his rackets through airline or something like that, then asked another player for their rackets used his own string then stenciled it I seriously doubt that. It is not the same as Stepanek's situation since Haas was only coming from Florida to Texas. Not a long journey, no customs, etc. Given that Haas is under contract with K-Swiss and is wearing Nike shoes shows he has little regard for his contracts these days.

last year on tour? Anyway, I would imagine Haas has been playing with a Head mould frame his entire career

Haas did the same thing back in 2005 when he was under contract with asics and wearing Nike shoes. Asics quickly cut him loose.

VS can you please fill us in why all these pros are using PT57A the PT630 mold ? I thought this frame sucked and did not do well (it sucked) hence it was discontinued. Why is it that we are still seeing PT57A all over the tour? more than 15 years later, why? am I missing something? :-)

cant Haas ...get a hair cut..and get a contract with Head and Adidas? k-swiss is ugly crap

k-swiss is ugly crap

Quoted for truth.

Also...Head and adidas probably think he is too much on the downside of his career to invest much in. Plus Haas gets hurt so easily. He could hurt himself badly just by reading the newspaper or tying his shoelaces.
