    Its a tough decision for anybody who picks him up because he sure does not want to get rid of that racquet. He really likes it!

    I held it whilst I was getting my rackets strung on tuesday. The grip is massive and hand made by Nate.

    Ivo slightly changes his grip during his service motion... i could not believe my eyes when i saw that first alive.... there is a point in his serve when he holds his racquet with his palm bent around his monster grip but no fingers on... big hands....

    In length I mean, not size. But I guess it's his change of grip.

    Who would want to sponsor him? Consumers can't relate to a 6'10" tennis player with a massive serve and very little game otherwise. He also plays with racquet that is difficult to PJ.

    His strings seems to be stenciled with babolat, so is his strings being sponsored by Babolat?
