    Why is it sad? I think it is about time they re-sign him as he has been using their racket so faithfully and doing so well with it .

    how many top flight players does kolya need to beat the hell down to get some respect. it's not very hard to find even the lowliest qualifiers with sponsors. feel like prince is always jerkin' him around.

    I think they re-signed him. After a long time, Davydenko's profile reappeared on Prince's now updated website. This is actually a good news because Prince really needed some top players. He is still using the Ozone Tour but I really hope that Prince can update it as a EXO3 Tour.

    Here is my design and suggestions:
    Retaining orange cosmetics and 97 sq in. Maybe add one more creating the most controlled racket of the line, the exo3 tour 90. With leather grip. (looks a bit weird in all orange). Now prince can divide them into four groups: pro(tour and graphite) with leather grip, tour(rebel and ignite), all around(black and white), and lastly thunder (red, blue and silver, maybe even gold and platinum). Excellent wide family of great performance rackets from tour to power.

    Why? It's called buisness. And it was not really there decison not to be in a deal with him, he looked at other brands and didnt re-sign

    From what I hear, Prince is admitting to many mistakes now...particularly in their product line which is outselling Adidas frames by a slim margin... ;)

    I find that hard to believe. Adidas rackets have a year or 2 left max. Tennis Warehouse has dropped them in the US, in the uk they havent taken off as well. They feel cheap, are very basic and wont survive. If a company like fisher went bust, that had a better racket history in the last 20 years then Adidas wont. There range is to small and not gooe enough. Prince has a much stronger history in rackets and lets face it the speedports were average. But the original o3's were ground breaking and we sold so many of the silver, blue and reds it was a joke. The player rackets were a bit different but the o3 tour had a strong following. These new EXO 3's are very good and will get prince back out there. I know that Prince does alot better in the US than the UK, in the UK the rackets retail to high, and Babolat, Wilson and Head have it sewn up

    This has been discussed long time ago
    He used a blacked out YouTek Speed MP 18x20
    There's a thread with pics. I think the title is something like Davydenko's 2009 racquet

    Sorry in advance for the tangent, but I just went to Prince's site and heard Metallica. Not The Prince, either, but theMy Friend of Misery bass line. This struck me as odd. I wonder if they're using it legally.

    what are you talking about.... get your information straight
    sam querrey is not using the new prince exo3 ignite
    he is going to be sporting the exo3 tour
    and it also sees davy and ferrer will be using the exo3 tour as well

    i think he only resigned because prince offered him a sum or money
    and it couldnt hurt since he didnt have a sponser for a year
