I believe he used the flexpoint instinct at the nasdaq-100, or something when he played against Tim Henman. Then at the wimbledon juniors, he was using the flexpoint prestige, and now in his match at the U.S. open, donald was using the flexpoint radical? what is this kid thinking? honestly, isn't it best to just stay with one racket and practice with that throughout the year? i don't know, maybe he really doesn't like the other rackets and just likes to experiment.

when you haven't won a match at the ATP level in god knows how many matches you try anything to win. either that or head is making him play with everything under the sun to try and sell more frames to other young 15 year old who may be fans of DY

If you were a 15-year old kid with a Head sponsorship and a vast choice of shiny material, what would you do in a situation like that?

When he wins his first match and they come out with the Flexpoint Donald model, he'll have to settle down.

FYI, his racquet is a paintjob Radical, it is actually a prestige.

Perhaps he's been using the same racquet all along and all of those were just various paintjobs from the Head Pro Room leftover bin? ;) LOL

Could his lack of success be due to Travler's weighting concepts? Pherhaps Donald is playing stock or not putting in enough lead, if that is the case that could really turn things around for him.

Because he can play equally as bad with any of them. :)

Yeah, the radical is a custom, the flexpoint is actually a real one and so is the instinct.

LOL I was there too. Santoro was tooling around so much. He was just smiling at Dechy and hitting crosscourt dropshots off Weinhold (Dyoungs partner's) serve.

May be because Head makes such crappy rackets that he had to try a bunch of different models and hasn't found one he likes.

Donald needs tons of McNugget kids meal and then pump some iron! Lets wait till he's fully grown and then see what he can do, but before that happens...bash him all you like! muahaha!:mrgreen:

Oh, yeah, he's been adding a lead strip from 3 to 9, and polarizing the handle with 10 grams. Or, something. :)
