Natalie Dechy was using an all black racquet with a Head logo on the strings in her match over Kirilenko. Looked Prestige shaped which is her usual racquet.

Anyone have insight about this? Or is it just cool for racquet companies to paint something black and create a buzz over nothing just before the US Open?

She was using an i. prestige before, but this one is surely different. It has a different bumper. So it could be a radical mold. As far as I know Head will issue a remake of the first Radical Tour (black/yellow) because Agassi retires. Maybe?!?!?
BTW: They will also issue a retro version of the first Prestige because of the 20 years prestige next year.

Will this play like the original prestige? or will it be like today's prestiges? Any idea?

What I was told it will be a 100 % remake of the original Prestige Pro. We'll see.

jura, Does that mean it will be made in Austria too? If it is going to be a genuine remake of the Prestige Pro then it should be made in Austria like the original was.

You're right, it should be. I didn't think about this until now, but I don't think that they will produce it in Austria.

jura, I agree it is most likely that HEAD will outsource the remake Prestige Pro to China. I don't see how the remake from China can play like the original did from Austria.

Yeah, in fact it might play better being made in china, have you thought of that?
