anyone know? thanks.
It's still a mystery to me. I know it is not RDX 500 because I actually look at his picture in the Tennis Magazine today and it has 16 main and 18 cross. That is the spec of the RDX 500 mid not midplus, or not? What racquet size does he play with anyways?
its a super rd tour 90 under the rdx 500 paint job
he is supposed to play with a rdx mid, not mp.
does it really matter if its mp or mid
well the string pattern is different, and it does actualy matter. he is supposed to adrevrtise the mid, whearas nalbandian plays the mp, and dementieva plays the mp HD. now that joachim johnaseen is doing well, and is actualyl playing with the mid, im sure that yonex is quite pleased.
roger said once.. hewitt hasn't changed his racquet since the day he won us open.. so watever racquet that was its the same one as now.. guess? coz i didnt know what acquet he was using then.. ohh btw i missed out on 100 bux to get his racquet that he used in the final of master cup.. damn i lost the auction by 100$..
wow, i hope there is a good reason for that, like you were uinconcious, or stuck in an elevator without a cell phone.
article about painting rackets
Yes, hewitt uses RD-tour 90 painted like RDX-500
the weight and balance are what i'm most interested in - is he playing stock?
Hewitt said in the ESPN article that he adds a little mass to the head of his Super RD-Tour 90.
He was using the RD Ti-50. What was the final bid?
I think Yonex is an honest company. On its website, it says Hewitt "Plays the Yonex MP Tour-1 (90")." se it yourself at
you can see on the pics, even in yonex's rdx adds, there is a small peice of lead tape in the super metal ips patch. the reason you can see the elad is because its darker, and the other players in the add, nalandian and dementieva haven't got that lead.
what maeks you think yonex is honost? on heads website they say agassi uses the flexpoint radical, before that they said he used the lm raidcal, before that the i radical, before that the ti radical, before that the radical tour . .. . and we know that palyers typically dont switch frames . .. so i dont see how we can give the companies the benefit of the doubt.
That yonex site on Hewitt looks pretty old.
Because they are NOT saying he is using the new RDX500 Mid.
you're right. i just found some pictures where everbody can clearly see that he adds lead at 3 & 9 o'clock.
it's interesting to see that now he adds more lead to his racquet than he did in the past, although we all know it was the same super rd tour 90.
earlier in his career he did not add lead, as you can see on the following picture.
He's added more and more as he's gotten older and the players he competes against hit harder.
