Hi everybody,


I got a question have hear that every 3 month the players must change her raquent and play with paintjob.


And the player must chnage raquet if they is a newest model


For example aero pro drive and aero pro drive cortex


Could I say "I not would chance, because I love to play with the aero pro drive I dont want change on the newest cortex model"




Must a do what company say or could I have my own mind and change by myself:confused:

It depends on contract. But, most contracts say: "You can play whatever racquet you want, and we (company) will paint it to look like current model". That is best both for player (money) and for company (advertising).

Pete Sampras is an example of a guy who never changed PJs. He was cautious of even the weight of the paint affecting the way his PS 85 played. Obviously his contract didn't have anything in it about PJs.

That worked out pretty well for his racket, we had that throwback phase where PS85's were going for well above $200
