What racquet is he really using? Is it a real rdx 500 mid?
I wouldn't bet on it, but I never knew that he switched from his old Head sponsorship (painted i.Prestige).
Must at least be some sort of Yonex since you can't paint an oval headed racquet and make it look rectangular. He used to use an i.Prestige Mid up until recently but it looks like he must have just signed a contract with Yonex as he's also wearing Yonex clothes and shoes when he used to wear Fila.
Amazing that he could just simply switch from an i.Prestige Mid to a RDX 500 Mid and continue serving bombs and hitting killer groundstrokes like nothing's changed.
hes dating hewitts sister maybe he had a hit with one of his srd90 and switched to that.
When i remember right,dokic was using or is using a head with yonex-paint too.....
It really is the rdx 500 mid.
Yep, supposedly an RDX 500 90 with an custom 18/20 pattern, made up to his specs.
Does anyone know what strings he uses?
I think he likes Philippousis's game so he got the racquet and clothes before.
I saw his match Tues vs. Michael Lladro. From two rows up from the court in Armstrong... and literally 6 ft. away from him, I can tell you that he is absolutley NOT playing with a Prestige frame from any era. It is a Yonex frame by the head shape but god only knows which one or if it's a custom mold.
Regardless....this guy is amazing. After watching his match I knew this guy actually could beat Roddick. The guy is scary he's so good.
The guys is great when he's on and not hurt. Injuries have slowed his progress until now. I saw him play Roddick on the TC in San Jose this year the week before Memphis and he played him very close, I think he lost. When he came to Memphis I just knew he would have a good tournament. He did and won it. I think he has a bigger forhand than Roddick just a little less consistant. He is an amazing talent.
