So have adidas decided to just give up on the US market after bungling their re-entry into the racquet category last year? Does anyone know for sure what their plans are? They're selling what look like the same frames with different graphics in Europe, but everyone here is blowing the old models out with no signs of new ones on the horizon. I still can't believe they came back without a single pro using one of their frames - it just seems they overestimated the strength of their brand, at least here. I love my Barricades, but the overall reaction to the line was tepid at best and downright surly at worst (y'all know how ugly the forum got on this subject!). So do any of you have knowledge of what adidas are planning to do? I'm curious more than anything, I suppose.
