Is it a real graphene speed? Anyone know his strings?
It doesn't look like a head speed graphene mp up close
More and more players are playing with Novak's stick
Nice to see.
I agree - looks too narrow in the head. I'd guess Radical.
but novak doesn't use a g speed, or are you saying that sascha uses a lm radical??
He did use a real IG speed and youtek in the past years
it looks like a Radical Microgel mold....just like Nole...
It seems no one is interested with using the speed mold
based on close up pictures, looks like the mold of the youtek/youtek ig speed (18x20). Seems too round to be a micro rad mold like nole's, that stepanek and paes both seem to be using these days....
yes, it is the IG Speed MP.
I would say that you are right
its not the novak mold..its different.
i also think its the real speed mp!
it does not seem that round ...
it seems also thicker than a 21mm beam Ig Speed
german forums are pretty sure it's the IG Speed MP 18x20
There are no shared holes in his racquet. Looks like a YouTek Speed MP 18x20. His sticks even say MP with the Graphene paint job.
On an italian forum, one of the most important stringers of my nation wrote that Zverev is using the SAME mold used by the Djoker
So what's djocovics mold
Liquidmetal/microgel radical mp mold with custom lay-up
A little off topic but it seems like all the HEAD players are using radicals. The players that actually are allowed to say they're using radicals are very lucky when it comes to not having to .. I guess not be truthful.
Does not like it to me
??? what do you mean?
They use two different racquets. Not the same.
Well absolutely possible, i'm not saying i'm the messiah of tennis and you probably have better infos about this topic than me
Did you have the possibility to see Zverev's frame personally?
As you can see Novak bumper guard goes past the silver stripe on the shorts side of the white paint at the head of the frame.
While Alexander's bumper guard stops way before that same silver stripe on the short side of the white paint. They have two different head sizes and head shapes. They have two different racquets.
Djokovic and Stepanek both use the same racquet
IG Speed MP 18x20, belive me or not
he played that one for a while it seems. Someone saw him at a youth tourney 2-3 years ago and he was using it already.
I believe you guys , what about the weight? D'ya have any idea about it?
Either YT or IG Speed MP 18x20. He did use it in white a few years ago.
Can you see the difference in the racquets??
Yes, i play with an Ig Speed 18x20 and that bumper looks like the one on my own racket, it's definitely shorter than Djoko's one. Probably the paint-job makes the head shape visually different from my frame
Head Hawk/VS? Interesting....
That sounds like a very nice combination!
If it was the reverse I'd agree.
Oh yeah I didn't think about that? I suppose he is used to use a hybrid like that with a multi or similar and know when he can get NG for free he takes that instead. As I said said he is probably just used to it like that...
Is it a 100 or 98?
Well if it is the ordinary IG then it's 100.
Yes, but there's no way a top ATP pro would be using anything even remotely close to a retail Head stick.
Of course they could. If they liked it retail why not? It's not that he would have gotten custom made sticks two or three years ago. Maybe a bit of lead here and there but otherwise why would it not be a retail model? The IG speed (and the Youtek previous) was an excellent frame!
I was being sarcastic. I have been severely rebuked many times on this board for suggesting this very thing.
Sorry about that... Thought you were one of them...
I got a close look at the citi open practice courts a few days ago. Definitely looked like a 100sq inch speed
