    I did practice with him in a Future in Barcelona and on the TenisVal-academy in Valencia. He uses a Babolat Pure Drive + with two white Babolat overgrips and no replacement grip. He strings it with Hurricane Tour. Do not know the tension.

    2. I have no idea.
    3. 3.
    4. No, but I think it is around 55 lbs.
    (5. Do you want to know what I am playing with? ;) )

    Thanks!

    He use also the Babolat Pure Drive + with the Pro Hurricane Tour at 55lbs and the grip size 3 and two white Overgrips?

    He didn't use a vibration dampener?

    In which size use he the Hurricane Tour? (1,20, 1,25, 1,30 or 1,35mm)?

    Thank you

    Pffft, like I'd know
    Asking again repeatedly is not going to get you anywhere, in fact, people will most likely begin to ignore you. Especially annoying is the fact that you have posed the question "Which gauge of PHT does he use?" several times despite being told (several times) that no one knows. Again, no one is sure if he uses a damper, so you don't need to ask five more times.

    Let me be the first to ask, why do you care so much about every little thing this guy does, especially if you don't know what he looks like and don't know his style of play.

    hsv91,
    are you from Togo? Is that why you are so interested? I don't imagine there are many tennis players in Togo...

    You have played with Komlavi Loglo.

    Babolat says that he played the Pro Hurricane and didn't the Pro Hurricane Tour, is that right?

    Plays Komlavi his backhand one-or two-handed?

    Thanks

    Come on man... You have asked the same question six times in this thread.

    For your information, and i think you want to check this up, but his overgrip is not Tourna Grip but a new revolutionary grip called Western Grip

    :twisted:

    Yep, his overgrip is this new thing called "western grip", I haven't tried it, but it's supposed to be really good. By the way, stop asking the same questions.

    Thank you for picture number 5.

    On to business of more importance.

    Straightens Loglo his hairs with what product exactly and also please include number of ounces? Loglo has much much more styling of hair compared to me. Haircutperson of Loglo, please respond kindly. I must match hair of Loglo precisely otherwise things not pretty in my performance of tennis. Oh, and headband of Loglo is what brand? Very important. If double secret information...or privileged and classified in any way, please email me as soon possible is.

    Thank you in advance for replies please.

    EDIT:
    Hey, sorry, that was a little harsh. I'm kidding....honestly, I know hsv91 is probably a rising 17 yr old tennis player who could beat me in a singles match......a happy young kid whose first language is not English and he's thrilled that someone from Togo is doing well in international tennis. Bravo. I'm with you. And secretly I'd love to have hair like your boy Loglo.

    I just wanted to make the point that equipment matters just a hair more than hairstyle, that's all.

    Allez Loglo!
    Go Togo!
    And take Benin with you.

    What brand clothes is Loglo wear?


    Yes Big Banger original is his string of choice, no dampener from what I can tell.

    He does look very cool though. If he was any better I bet he would be a fan favorite because of that sweet hair, and the mutton chops.

    It looks like, that he use the "Babolat Custom Damp" in yellow as dampener.

    Not a hint of irony.

    Cool dreads, though, on Loglo.

    He does play serve and volley, as he says the courts are very fast in South Africa, and most people play S&V there.

    Also, there were a few pics on google images that seemed to show he had a two handed backhand.

    Hello,


    I have a question:



    Why didn't get Komlavi Loglo "5" ATP Ranking Points and "1" ATP Race Points for his first round match at the Beijing Olympics 2008?



    He must get 5 points for this match, because for example the player Lee Hyung-Taik get “5” Points for his match at the Olympics and he lost in the first round, too!



    http://www.atptennis.com/3/en/players/playerprofiles/playeractivity.asp?player=L311 (Lee Hyung Taik, get 5 points!)



    http://www.atptennis.com/3/en/players/playerprofiles/playeractivity.asp?player=L596 (Komlavi Loglo, didn’t get 5 points!)



    Why? :confused:

    His kit is from an Italian company called 'Tennis Teknololgy' or 'TTK'. They make really good stuff.

    Ok, thanks for the picture!

    His setup is also:

    Racquet: Babolat Pure Drive +
    String: Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour
    Tension: around 55lbs(do you know his real tension)?
    Overgrip: Babolat VS Grip Original

    My questions:

    1.) Is this his setup, which is his real tension?

    2.) I am certain that Loglo uses the "Babolat Custom Dampener(yellow)". Does anyone know if he uses it without the clear insert, or with the clear insert inside the dampner(please look on the tread pictures)?

    Thank you!
