I hated this frame the first time I hit with it. I've hit it three times now (don't know why I tried it again - I am no a huge Nadal fan) and I like it more each time. Seriously thinking about buying one - even though I'm a Pete fan and don't want to play with Agassi's racquet.

Minus the rubber-band... or any dampener!

I've never hit with an Aeropro Drive... or any Babolat for that matter. Are they that much more stiffer?

I was thinking the same thing...except about Steffi. :)

See, if he'd been playing with a smaller head sized racket he could have been #1. (Oh, he was?)

Looks like Steffi is rocking a gut/poly hybrid

It looks like Andre & Steffi are both playing with Babs.
What's up with that?
Not too long ago he was with Head, then Donnay, and now Babolat.
Make up your mind!

He looks more fit than many current ATP pros.

Don't Andre and Steffi know that real "players" think that Babolat rackets are cheap hollow toys? They must not know a lot about tennis.

Some guys do lose leg and arm hair as they age. They usually find it in their ears though.

True.
They both used the same racquet way back in the day too. the Prince OG.

wonder if he's signed up with babolat now since roddick has joined him on the seniors tour

NikeWilson

I wonder if Agassi has demo'd the stock Head Radical racquet. After all, the Radical line was dedicated to him by Head.
And now that his pro-career is over, maybe it's time he got rid of his personalized paintjob racquet and try the stuff that consumers play with.
haha.

I thought Agassi had a lifetime contract with ' Head"

Apparently not. Steffi with the PDR, I am so loving all of this. Heck, I even like Andre beating Roddick. He's hitting SICK with that Aero Pro. looks like PHT/VS Touch or all PHT.

I think that was a Head Radical with an AeroPro Drive paint job. :)

Doesn't seem to be using his usual elastic band shock absorber either. Strange. It's also stenciled with the double line so perhaps he's got an endorsement?

I do like how after they've retired, a lot of these former top pros switch to a completely different racket. Says a lot for Babolat that they seem to be a popular choice for retired pros?

I just find it strange that for some people players who were so picky about their frames and strings (Sampras) during their playing career are far more relaxed when retired.

Then again, perhaps that's not that strange and they're just going where the money is? (And they can pretty much play with anything!) For example, I know I prefer to play with a prestige mid, but if babolat wanted to pay me to use a pure drive I'm sure I could adapt! ;)

It always kills me to see people get so excited about something that happens in a exhibition match. Come on, guys - we've all been to exos. It isn't real tennis, and we all know it. (But man, how does Steffi just keep looking better and better as she ages? It's absurd.)

Saw Agassi last night in San Jose. I wasn't close enough to get a good look, but he carried a Head bag onto the court, and was swinging what looked like a variant of the Radical in the typical orange/black. Perhaps someone courtside has better shots?

That's a great racquet Agassi is using.

What?? Roddick beat Agassi 5-3 in the men's singles.

Agassi won the "super tiebreak", though. Roddick was hobbled by a sprained and swollen ankle. He was visibly limping around the court.

Still impressive for Agassi, he was really striking the ball well. But let's be realistic -- he didn't "crush Roddick" as you said. He lost their set.

She is the #1 US girl, Won Oz open in 2012. At 16 she is coming back from a medical issue which cause the USTA to not want her in the Open until she got late medical clearance.

Are you a Roddick fan? Or did you attend ths show?
The vidéo shows Agassi striking some great shots against Roddick, that's why I commented so. Ok "crush" was a little bit exagerated:)
Back to the topic, he actually played with his custom Head at San Jose and Vegas! Good to see him playing with Head.
