    That is what Dunlop says on their facebook.

    It is likely to be Verdasco.

    What do you guys think?

    Could be Blake - he's not been happy since he left Dunlop. Read that interview with him on here where he says he only has 3 rackets left!

    I thought I read somewhere that TF was possibly going to stop making racquets.

    Yep. Somebody read it somewhere and told it elsewhere, where another one read it just before telling in another place that he read somewhere that... In the end, no one knows where this rumour originated.

    I got $50 on him using a PJ of his Tecnifibre after "testing Dunlop's new technology." This is horse crap. It has nothing to do with racquets, everything to do with money.

    It was quite obvious from the start. We haven't even seen him touch a Dunlop like he did with the Yonex. Because Dunlop are prepared to PJ his current TF and Yonex were not.

    How can you make a Yonex look like any other racquet?

    Dunlop having quite a year, if the Berd renews they will have 3 Top 20 players! Heck, if Almagro does well 4...

    verdasco's TF would be easy to pass off as a 2hundred frame of some sort with a pj.

    I'm not sure. Personally, pro athletes have nothing to do with my choice of a racquet.

    I've always wondered if these endorsements actually translated into bumper sales per se.

    Anyone who's serious about tennis will buy a racquet that suits their game and not their idol.
