Is he gonna have a new raquet or is he sticking with is Cortex Babolat?
he doesnt change his racquets...
he plays with the same ones but babolat makes you think he changed his raacquets so you can buy new ones...
He is sticking to the same pj.
So he is staying with Babolat
why is this in the shoes and apparell section????
Babolat isn't coming out with any new racket til next febuary. but My question is What new rackets are being released at the US open ?? Last year there were lots of new rackets that came out at the US open time.
its a good racquet
I second that! I'm changing to AeroPro Drive after my summer holidays...
Are you talking about his new racket or new paint job ??
I heard Nadal will be switching to the new Wilson Pete Sampras PS 6.0 90 because he wants to become a pure serve and volley player now.
If Nadal switched to that racquet he would be out of the top 10 and wouldn't win another French Open.
So you agree that Nadal is only where he is because of his racquet. Interesting.
You're right though, if Nadal had to use the same racquet as Federer, Nadal would have never beaten Federer at any French Opens nor at Wimbledon.
haha i would like to see nadal with pro staff
ncode or kfactor are also fine
he would be in top 333 for sure
even though pro staff and ncode are 2 best rackets ever made
Yep, he signed a deal with them for 10 years.....
that was when the new cortex stick came out (even though he doesnt use it)
so he's got like 9 left
sorry for being a little bit off topic...
but which manufacturer(s) is/are probably gonna release new rackets during USO pls =]?
Another Fed excuse!!!!!!!!!!!...Keep em comin
that why federer uses his racquet and nadal uses his, because they have always played with the same sort of frame. And even if nadal switched I still think he would be top 10.
staying with babo
Its amazing that Nadal does so well with that hollow toy. If Nadal switched to Agassis racket he'd probably be #1 by a long way.
federer may not have won as many slams as he did if he used nadal's racquet either....it goes both ways....
they pick whatever racquet suits their style
Then why do people here keep harping that Federer should switch to a bigger racquet if he wants to win more?
Also, with Nadal's racquet, Federer should be able to generate even more topspin and have even a bigger serve.
Its all about the spin my friend..
dont forget less shanks on his backhand side
Nadal is sticking with the current paintjob for the time being. A new racket takes approximately 18 months to fully develop. I'm not sure if Babolat have started working on new Aero Rackets yet, but i've a feeling there will be a new Pure Drive in 2009 and also some beginner rackets.
Radical? Radical feels a lot more hollow than AeroPro. AeroPro doesn't even feel hollow. It feels smooth, yet crisp.
he is not going to switch. there is no way... he is too good with that stick already and he will not switch with wilson
Aero pro feels bulky to me when i pick it up but it doesn't feel bulky if you swing it. it is very strange sensation
Hopefully we get a updated PD.
The idea they had -- curving the grip -- to the curvature of the palm (of the hand) doesn't sound bad... no?
If Nadal won the Frech open then the Artois tournament and then Wimbeldon maybe he is happy with his.
I agree the APDC does feel very smooth and crisp. The racquet has a lot of feel.
the question is why hasnt babolat created a signature nadal aeropro. I mean that racquet pretty much symbolizes rafa. It stands out so much people automatically know its rafas racquet even if they dont watch tennis that much. I mean they created a roddick racquet and he hasnt won a grandslam in 5 years. Im sure the next line of aeros will have a nadal signature racquet.
Finally! Somebody else thought about it.
what if he went back to using a Pure Drive
Of course, lol, BreakPoint is just pulling people's legs.
yeah, I've been thinkin' about this too. I wonder why they haven't done it yet.
Meh, it's not that great. My brother was crazy to get it, and when he did, I tryed it. It's kind of heavy and makes a huge vibration when I hit with it.
And if Federer had to use Nadal's racquet where do you think he would be? Now that is an interesting question.
Federer would win every match he ever played without losing a single point. :shock: :lol:
in fact, he would pull out the racquets. his opponents would think to themselves: oh....my god...fed is playing me using rafa's sticks...
and as the realization dawns on them, they die, thereby forfeiting the match. federer would win a calender slam 15 times in a row without ever hitting a tennis ball, and then retire because there would be no more pro's left to kill
Greatest post ever. I think I peed myself laughing.
Perhaps to signify a possible 5th French Open title??? As far as i know they aren't developing one yet though.
Damn you, misleading title!
I'm quoting you off the first page, and there are those that I will miss--but he's not using Cortex--sorry....
no he won't switch....unless Fed switches :wink:
Wow the APDC has a lot of feel? Time to try other racquets.
I think Nadal's topspin and closed string patterns won't mix too well.
If it was a shank on a 90, what do you expect the shot to be on a 100? A blistering winner?
It'll most likely also be a shank or a fluffy sitter at best.
Nor would Federer win any opens if he had to play with Nadal's.
He definitely won't change from babolat at least because he already has a 10 year contract.
I would love to get my hands on a Nadal signature racket....why haven't they thought of this yet....
