    Anyone got the latest tennis magazine? On page 22, bottom right corner there is little article about What kind of racquet is martina navratilova using? and in the article it says
    " Aside from being in extradonary shape and having an inexhaustible will to compete, she's able to whip the whippersnappers with the help of her uniquely shaped racquet. it's custom-made by warren bosworth, Bosworth tennis in Boca raton, Fla., a comparny that fine-tunes sticks for pros, including Lleyton hewitt and robby ginepri and recreational player"
    So does that mean that Hewitt and Ginepro doesnt use yonex brand nor babolat??
    I dont get it

    hewitt uses yonex and ginepri uses babolat, but they get their sticks customized by bosworth (grip, weight, balance, etc)

    yea, bosworth not only manufactures racquets, but customizes them specifically for pros.

    He only "fine tunes" them for those guys as your quote says. However, Bosworth claims that Lendl actually switched to the racquet in the last 2 years of his career.

    I did see Lendl using a Bosworth frame his last year at the Key Biscane tournament. It was very odd to see Lendl NOT using his egg-shaped Kneissl/Adidas/Mizuno frames.

    Lendl switched to the Bosworth decagon the last 2 years of his career. Navratilova uses it now. I also saw a recent ad with Brad Gilbert an he used a Bosworth as well. They must be pretty good racquets...but Bosworth cannot compete with Wilson.
