Marat Safin - Prestige
Mikhail Youzhny - Instinct
Dmitry Tursunov - Prestige
S Kuznetsova - Instinct
Myskina - Instinct

Only Sharapova and Davydenko play with Prince,
Petrova and Safina - with Babolat
Dementyeva, Kirilenko - Yonex

The question should be, "why is Head so succesful in signing Russian players?"

That's right. I think Head gives them better deals. It's a very huge market for them and close geographically.

You must be 12 or something. That's OK. We accept everybody, even "very special" people. Continue my friend collecting points

I like the pun in the title of this thread. At first I thought it was referring to *******s but then that's cause I have a tendency to look beyond the literal first and go with slang terms and I try to be analytical. *note the operative verb - try*

And then of course I realised it was about the brand when I remembered that I give my friend a thrashing regularly cause he can't wield his newly purchased Head properly.

Oh sorry. I didn't know they censored that blow word. I only thought they censored swear words. My bad.

If you look at the geography, the Head plant in Austria was fairly close and it was the closest major racket producer.

Everybuddy likes Head! The russians are just ahead of the curve, they play with newly designed racquet technology that actually allows the racquet to perform orally after the match in addition to striking balls on the court.


hahaha @ heartman and ajk1

Andre knows about performing with the head, as well as receiving it.

And then there's the plant in the Czech Republic as well.
