    Does it have the 'food pyramid' written on it? :)

    Hmm, what you think it is?

    It looks a bit like his old Fischer in some aspects.

    Racquet aside, it appears as though he's lost some weight. I always wondered whether he'd make a commitment to getting fit. Maybe he has.

    He Looks a lot better not wearing a bandana too. I hope he has a good 2012. It would be nice to see him win some big matches again.

    And looks like Bernie is gone officially from Head to Yonex. I wonder if that will help him play any better ?

    new look for Baggy in 2012.

    baggy has been putting in a solid training block, once his body adjusts to the weight redistribution:), he will be fine!
    Actually if he keeps it disciplined, he is one of the guys who could move up this year. He has the class.
    The racquet PJ is nice enough!

    Watching his match with Harrison, I don't see any markings or a stencil on his racquet , anyone know what is up, did he split with Technifibre.

    Yes, i agree, it looks the same but why not any Tecnifibre stencil or logo? His partnership whith Tecnifibre ended?

    Really sweet blue color. There are not enough blue racquets out there.

    Always wondered if at some point he might go to Pacific since one would think they have the mold of his old Fischer.

    Ok, my fault.
    I got confused because of the string pattern.
    I think i saw a pic from his practice a couple days ago where he was using a pacific dampener but i wasn't sure about it.

    I'm less interested in what the racquet actually is (word on the street is that it's been the Fischer since forever, even when he was sponsored by TF), but rather, I'm curious to know if he continues to be endorsed by TF or goes to Pacific or some other brand.

    I guess he's switching from Technifibre, cause the Technifibre's logo has been taken off of Baghdatis' website.

    Same old Fischer Pro No.1 that he has used since the juniors just painted blue now and with no sponsor.

    great photo,
    hope he keeps the mold & brings out his own line!
    He would be a great pick-up for any company but he obviously still
    loves his fischer!

    Club Med should sponsor him, if the Cypriot Tourism Bureau isn't.

    Yeah, you can really see it's a Fischer one He used, you can even see that where the Fischer logo (just above the handle) was supposed to be is missing, whoever owned Fsicher racquets know that Logo would come off easily as the logo of the butt cap.

    A friend who owns a pro shop in BS.AS. strung a few of his racquets last month (Baghy was here, playing an exhibition against Monfils).
    My friend pro shop is pretty close to the club and he received a couple of racquets to strung (Monfils EXO3 included). For Baghdatis part, he strung his regular fischers and one blacked out frame: this one was a Dunlop Bio 300, all black.
    Maybe he was testing some stuff on practice. On all his matches was still using the Fischer....

    Fischer VT Pro 98 indeed: round butt cap, Fischer bumper guard, thin throat, tapered beam with thin shaft and thicker head. It does look really good in blue.

    yeah! I thought a minute after what I wrote.
    There many more Babolat Pure DRive, and others but Baghdatis is solid blue and looks terrific!

    If you take a close look at this stick, there are elements of the Cyprus flag, wreaths. so do not look similar to the stock racket, PJ selected on the basis of Marcos`s sympathy
