Just came to my mind if a company says that a pro uses so and so string but really doesn't.

Any comments?

Well... Agassi DOESN'T ADVERTISE he is using Luxilon. The head ads still say he is using Head Tour or something.

Roddick is supposed to be using an all Babolat hybrid. I doubt he was ever using Polymono... Now he has supposedly switched to Hurricane but was shown playing with a blue string on the crosses in Miami...

Also it looks like Wilson made a move in this direction when starting to sell a wilson branded natural gut 'made in france'...

Carlos Moya and Alex Corretja sort of falsely advertised strings when they were supposed to be using Ballistic. Fernando Gonzales falsely advertises the Hurricane because he is using ALU.

5-star in the crosses . . . hmmm

Won't the ridges go the wrong direction to bite the ball ?

I think pros are using racquets which are not the same racquet as ones which we can buy shops, namely, their racquets are improved for pros. If my thought abobe, I think racquet companies should mention about it.
As far as I see, Coria's racquet is a little different from NXG.
