    Novak has donated his frame through Tennis Australia to raise funds for Andrew Florent diagnosed with cancer

    Item #: 170977691750

    Hopefully sells for a high price, good cause

    I saw your title and immediately thought you were referring to the frame Novak gave to the spectator after his win against Stan last night.

    (Nole gave away the racket to a female spectator, and a pair of his silver Barricades to another lucky person in the stands)

    ^^ I'm sure it's online somewhere...it would probably make the tail-end of the highlights package.

    I didn't watch it that carefully, but I thought he was handling two different racquets post-match. I wonder if he had a stock retail OEM Graphene Speed Pro in his bag---shared holes and all---that he gave to the woman in the stands.

    Sorry, I just loves me some conspiracy theories.

    Yes they were shoes. You can see the Silver back of the Barricades

    That was my initial thought, too, because the racquet he gave her had a normal Head dampener and not his orange one he was playing with.

    Thanks.. unfortunately not much else as far as vids. I did try and film some of that fed match in regular speed and the footage itself looked good, but the points were all too short, so not worth uploading.

    I have some extra footage of alejandro falla practicing which is decent, will eventually put that up.. I have a bunch of other slow mo stuff from fed etc.. but was much of the same thing, so not worth uploading it all.

    You should still upload the Fed stuff! I really enjoyed it, and I'm sure many others did too! Good work :)

    FabFed got a bargain - 4 or 5 thousand for the frames used to win Wimbledon. Anyone have a link to the sale?
