    Just watching the Roddick/ Karlovic match and at one point the flexpoints were clearly visable underneath the black paint of Karlovi's new "Babolat" racquet. So he was one of the few players to actually take a liking to the flexpoint "technology" - interesting. Anyone know which Babolat he will eventually be endorsing?

    We know its not an Bab Aero. That is what babolat is trying to get him to use. the flexpoint holes are hard to hide so Im not really sure what they are planning

    PS is pure storm, not prostaff

    They should not paint it like a Pure Storm. I like that Babolat is not trying to deceive anyone.
