    I just saw the match on tennis channel and when he was putting his racquets away...he had a racquet with a technifibre plastic bag covering it. Does that mean anything like he changed strings...or future companies? Or did the stringers just put that on? :shock:

    Tecnifibre is the official stringer for the tournament that's why.

    thats because all of P1's players have a P1 bag on it but Rafa uses the tournament stringers hence the technifibre bag.

    Rafa has a 10 year contract with Babolat. He is not switching anytime soon that is for sure.

    Fed, Safin, djoker etc.. got strung by P1, not by the official stringing service, Rafa does make use of the official service, thats why the plastic cover said TF
