Okay, question no. 1...

Rafa is known to still use the APD "Original", but does anyone know for sure which version Tsonga is using. Querrey too?

No 2...

Who are all the pros (male and female) using this stick (any APD version)?

All the hatred directed at the APD-wielding masses but, well, if so many pros are playing with it (including I now learn Andre A and Steffi G) just maybe it's not such a bad frame after all. :wink:

BTW, you've got to wonder how much lead AA has on that.:)

That makes sense since Andre posted a pic of him, Steffi and Martina Navratilova on his Facebook page yesterday. Steffi was holding a Pure Drive in that pic. I've read somewhere that Agassi was a little bit of a racquet or tennis gear nut...guess he likes experimenting with different racquets these days. What I also find funny is that he was reported as being a good customer of Donnay in buying a big batch of the X-P Dual Black 102 racquets.

Now if someone could produce a video of Andre using the APDGT, that would be even cooler!

I don't understand the hate for the APD? anti-Rafa fans maybe?

I tried out about 12 different sticks before finding I liked it best...I am leaning a little more towards the storm with it's 98head since I mostly play net. but still.

I'm honestly glad to see it Wilson was about the only brand you could find anywhere when I was growing up and just as Head made its way up the ranks now so has Babolat... more competition = better sticks for consumers.

Yes. Steffi's using a PDR!
I just ordered one. Although I'm a guy, she was one of my favorite players!

This couple just gets to me. Do they not eat! Protein shakes and sit-ups are no way to spend retirement. :smile:
