    Could someone update a list of Volkl's tennis players (players that are using any Volkl racket at the moment)?


    Thanks.

    No. Benjamin Becker uses Babolat racquets and wears Boris becker clothes.

    Kevin Kim still uses the Voelkl Tour 10 MP. Right now he has the PB10 MP PJ on it.

    Before I posted, I had the same doubt because one of the pics showed babolat. But in an interview, he mentioned the Becker 11, so I thought he must be using a Becker now.

    It is really sad about Volkl/BB if a pro who endorses their shirt will not endorse their racquet!

    I think you are very confused. Benjamin never had a contract to use Becker or Voelkl racquets. Benjamin has a contract to wear Becker Clothing.

    Renaissance Tennis Management is proud to announce the new sponsor of their Number One player Benjamin Becker: At the Masters tournament in Hamburg Benjamin signed a 3-year contract with his long time idol Boris Becker to endorse his new clothing line "Boris Becker".

    "With his amazing success in his first year on the ATP tour year, being named the ATP Newcomer of the year and sharing the same initials "BB", Benni is the perfect testimonial for this new clothing line", says Norman Canter, founding partner and Managing Director of RTM.
    Because of the famous and legendary initials "BB", Benjamin was always asked if there is any relationship between him and Boris. Until now, Benni had to negate this question: "It is like a dream come true", says Benjamin. "I started playing tennis because of Boris when I was a little kid. Now, I'm wearing his name on my shirt, when I walk out on the court. I'm feeling very honored".


    Now Jamie Baker was using the Boris Becker 11 MP and wearing Lotto clothing.

    They use to until about 3 years ago when they cancelled every player they had under contract on the tour.

    It has nothing to do with sadness, gladness, willingness to endorse or the quality of their product. It's a business thing. Benjamin already has a contract with Babolat for racquets, and Volkl isn't spending money on getting racquet endorsers now. This is how endorsement always works. I don't know why people are determined to read into things like this so much. Product endorsement is always a contract/money thing, straight up, not whether or not a pro is "willing" to endorse something.

    I'd rather buy a racquet where the manufacturer spent money on MAKING the racquet as good as it can without shelling money to some high profile pro, and having the price bumped up because of endorsements...
