    Yes because gaining weight equates to enjoying life! Of course! He's not fat, he just enjoys life more than I do! I'll remember that the next time I see a fat **** in a scooter at the grocery.

    You know how many times I've heard that? The stupid, idiotic drivel that people spout. I swear to god. "Have fun! Eat horribly unhealthy food and live a little!" I have literally heard people say that. Honestly, that's fine if people want to be in denial about being fat and lazy, but keep it to yourself.

    He is not under Babo contract anymore because the strings are blank without the babo logo (looks like it from this pic). If he is testing out frames they would at least require him to stencil the logo.

    May be he is just on a renewal phrase where Babo still gives him some money and free rackets but at a lower rate since he left the tour already.

    Probably more than $1 per frame

    Like $10-20 per frames that cost over$150 and also recouping the cost of the molds. In the case od Pure Drives, it's amazing that Babolat basically used a mold that they bought from Pro Kennex for $25k or $50k (the PK Destiny), rebranded it and contracted Roddick, Moya and Ciisters and voila, a line was born... Once they got Nadal on board via Moya, a whole generation can suffer:)

    I had a client I gave lessons to who was a multimillionaire and who owned Prince before selling the company to Benetton in the late 1990s. He told me the iconic Prince graphite racquet cost 'about $15 to manufacture' and that the popular (at the time) Prince synthetic gut cost 'about 40 cents' to produce, package and all.
