    Interesting he's toting around both the BLX90 and PSBLX90.

    I wonder what's under the PJ or is it retail?

    why would Wilson pay Edberg to use their rackets ? He is retired and noone is interested in Edberg serve and volley anymore

    Current paint job part of the deal. He doesn't have the needs of some of the players on this board.:?

    He's probably got a lifetime contract... although I think he was using Fed's racquet.

    At one time, I recall reading that he was a distributor for Wilson in Europe. He may still have an interest in that company.

    Wilson probably heard that Edberg was all of a sudden going to be on international TV and said, "get that man a frame from the new lineup, stat!"

    If you noticed, Edberg kept banging the strings against the heel of his hand, I assume indicating he was still getting used to the new feel.

    heard it was like a guy with a peashooter going up against a guy with a shotgun, if Roger was smarter he would embrace the new tech and rip Joker a new butthole

    He has used the tour 90 line for a while now. I remember watching a champions tour event a year or two ago and he was still using the K90 with leather grip.

    Yeah, he shook it a couple of times and then bent it over his knee. It looked like he was seeing if it was cracked. I've seen posts that describe parts coming lose in the handle and in one case the handle coming off completely! Hopefully Wilson has fixed this issue. I've really enjoyed my demo of the racquet so far and feel it's everything I was hoping Wilson would do!

    Djokovic plays with a super-flexy frame that's more old-tech than new.
