4 or 5 years ago, Volkl was "hot" and all the rage. It was THE racquet brand to be seen using. That eventually faded. In fact, some pro shop owners tell me that they sell very few Volkls these days. For the last couple of years, Babolat has been the "hot" brand to be seen using. I get the feeling it's star is waning and it's on it's last legs (perhaps because Roddick can't seem to be able to beat Federer with one? :lol. In fact, a local pro shop just started carrying Babolat (after not carrying it for many years, maybe to make up for their sagging Volkl sales?) That may be a sure sign that Babolat is on the decline, just as you know the stock market or real estate market has peaked when everybody piles in. So what's the next "hot" brand in racquets? nCode? Liquid Metal? Fischer? Technifibre? Some other new foreign brand that has yet to be introduced? What's your prediction?
