    Does anyone know what racket Andre really uses? I'm not to big on the paintjob conspiracy but i was just wondering if anyone had any hard facts on what it is, because when i pause my TiVo on a closeup of his racket (safin's also) it is very clear that the liquid metal ridges are painted.

    and if you look carefully, it doesn't have the LM Radical graphics on it (although it is the same colour scheme) - compare the Penn advertisement in last month's copy of Tennis (Sampras cover) with the WTT advertisement in the same issue.

    pretty nice Head bag he was using at Cincy though - nothing like anything on the TW Head bag section.

    It's common knowledge that Agassi has always played with a Snauwaert Ergonom. Why do people have to keep bringing it up?

    Geez Guys . . .

    Almost all, top, pros have custom molds that resemble the racquets they say they are using. They get them undrilled from the factory and have racquet techs custom drill and weight them.

    Get off this horse. It's only for show.

    He bought the Donnay Pro One mold one decade ago. What ever is use, is definitely a deviant of it. And, its definitely not one that you can find in a store. Changing racquet is harder than changing wives. Just ask Boris if you don't believe me !

    firstly stating the obvious is that AA uses a custom mold racquet for a long while however he also has 2 different types of head sizes he uses during the year... one is the 104sq inch and the other a 107 sq inch which he alternates between tournaments during the year... kinda remarkably weird....

    almost right. he tried the 104' head last fall thru this spring but has since ditched it and gone back to the usual 107'
