    He's also using completely new string. Looks like 4G to me.

    Probably needs the money since the Germans sent Cyprus down the toilet.

    Hope he can control the power of Head GRaphine. I think it will help his serves. and overall game.

    Graphene didn't help the beat down he got from Korolev in R1 at the open. His game looks like it has changed a bit with the new racket, but that's just my opinion.

    True, Marcos was constantly looking at his racket after every unforced error. Never seen him going that with the Fischers. Looks like he was playing flatter as well...imho...

    Cyprus wasn't the only one...

    We all know the main reason why Cyprus went bankrupt was the Baghdatis racquet sponsorship.

    I really like the Fischer frame that he is currently using. It is the same frame that Kafelnikov used under different names.

    If I could buy brandnew fischer-racquets today, i would buy 30 frames and never use anything else in my life.
    im wondering where marcos is getting those racquets from?!? and he seems to get a lot of them, as he is destroying them without hesitation.

    Dont know what you saw being strung but he was definitely using the old Fischer Vacuum Pro 98 painted blue in his matches.

    Please enlighten us. There is only one mold that blue racquet can be and that is the old Fischer which Pacific currently has the rights to.........

    I wonder if he would by one off of me since they can't be to easy to find nowadays? unless pacific is still making them for him and not sponsoring him

    Pacific still does make the old Fischer Pro No. 1 for the players. I got to hit with one that was made for a certain Italian Professional.

    lol you guys.

    i am in teh string room, and i am chatting with the head stringer. and lets just say we talked about isner and del potro and dimitrov and baggys rackets. now i am not a pro stringer or anything and what other stringers do on here has nothing to do with me. he was nice enough to chat with me and offer some insights that he did not want to leave the room. but you guys of course are all 5.5 blasting 125mph serves and know the difference between 295 grams and 295.4617 grams. its TT. i dont really care.

    The blue stick is his old Fischer mold (now owned by Pacific) that he's been using for years. END OF STORY.

    Anyone who says otherwise is either plain out lying, misinformed or just doesn't know anything.

    Why would you post about any of this if you didn't care? And the best part is that you posted no information (because you have none), it was all name dropping. Pretty lame.

    Tell us about Serena's racquet again.

    I just don't understand why if Pacific is still making him sticks(I can only assume since they own the molds) why he has to paint them baby blue?
    Can they not afford to throw him a few bones? Their Pjs are sweet looking anyway,not much diff than the speeds actually.

    ^ Pacific is probably afraid of MB breaking rackets faster than Pacific can make them, if the rackets were free to MB, LOL.
