Marcos today used head youtek ig in his training in cyprus
Youtek ig speed
how did he like it?
you answered before you saw my question. good stuff
I don't know, just saw it in tv
i thought you were maybe his hitting partner
Marcos kick with it
look the video on the right from 45.00-46
He as using the new Graphene IG Speed, its the same as some pictures floting around in the forum
Great find, thanks for sharing.
that's the new graphene speed
Head was probably interested in the attention given to his racquets when he smashed four of them last year.
I predict he'll smash six this year.
^^That would be HILARIOUS.
Ti kaneis file? Ti lei to nisi mou?
Baghdatis will hopefully get something going on late in his career, ala agassi. Such a pleasure to watch, at the least entertaining.
Finally He got a deal for free racquets, nice for him!
Gaia sou klementine. Kala eimai. To nisi mas xalia.
We hope Marcos goes bit better.

Marcos gives the island something to rally behind and forget the everyday reality. Really wish he was a better ambassador though. Here's hoping he has a good year.
good move for him deserved a sponsor
Now those are some dudes who travel in comfort over style.
Not everyone in Biz/First Class appreciates the look. I usually have a warmup jacket, not a hoodie. But some people are ok and ask if I'm an ex-pro. To which I say "only until the alarm clock goes off."
@Finikas, thanks for all the great pictures!
Couldn't care less what people think about me when I fly in sweats! I paid for my ticket just like they did.
Thanks west coast ace, my pleasure
He' still using the blue one in match right now.
Flying via emirates not too shabby.
If he were to use the new speed he probably won't be allowed to before the unveiling on the eleveth.
Probably, though I saw one of the finalists playing with the new Speed racquet in the AO play-off. (.....)
On topic: Great news for Marcos!
Off topic: New Instinct paintjob
Has anyone clos-up pics of Marcos' blue Cyprus PJ btw. ?
We'll see what he has when 2013 hits. Who knows what the wording of the endorsement contracts say? Could stipulate that he has to finish the tournament with the old stick. We'll know as January unfolds.
I thought there was more, but here is what I found:
Marcos looks slim/fit on these pics...hope he can get it together and deliver some amazing tennis this year
That's not how it works. If he liked the Speed and if HEAD did not wont anyone to know the new cosmetics then the racquet would have been painted all black.
Sorry for this size of the photo...here he is still with blue racket.
He's still using his blued out Fischer.
Still with his old frame.
Nooo!... Baggy can't have finally quit his beloved Fischers!:shock:
Well if Safin didn't drive Head to bankruptcy i think they will be okay with the likes of Baghdatis...
Photos of Marcos's rackets
Here are a few pictures of his rackets from June 2012:
From another thread:
Interestingly enough, the bumper guard was labelled "Tecnifibre - 16 x 20". The racket definitely seemed to be from the Fischer Pro No.1 mold though. Funny that it didn't have Fischer or Pacific labelled on the grommet strip.
Hope this can be of help,
That's because he was with Tecnifbre before and the "315 speedflex" was a copy of his old Fischers...
Sweet photos prostringing!
Looks like the racquets were a bit of a collaboration... "Custom design and paint by Curt Stefan" (Bosworth) yet built to specs by P1... Interesting
Thanks for sharing.
Or maybe the Graphene is unbreakable, and that's their angle.
This is the mother of Frankenstein..
Priority One Twitter photos :
Marcos used the graphene to Davis cup
Uses the head racquet in munich as well. still no head stencil though, which means he hasnt signed the contrac yet imo.
