    Caption: Roddick looked like a fruit then, still looks like one today.

    (Rickson's right. I guess I DO like to caption pictures.)

    denty, guga is not using the Head pt280 and JCF is probably using a paint job of the POG.

    yeah the colors eems imila,r with hte yellow and red, but if you look at a picture of teh 6.1 (below) and davydenko's frame, pay aattention to the 3 and 9 oklock inside of the frame colors, its not a 6.1.

    if you guys go to a certain auction site, and search fora the item number 7171495541, you can finda good picture of a super rd tour 90. that is what davydenko is using in that pic, not the 95.

    Yah, i dont think he ever switched from the POG, there was always differences in the string pattern :)

    And Roddick used to use the Michael Chang, it looks like a Precision approach in that picture... o_O

    He's been playing the PD for a while now. I remember him playing with it last year in Newport with Agassi, Tony Roche and McEnroe.

    I don't think Andre waxes.. I think all his hair's just gone... From what I hear, only 3 ATP guys shave their legs, Moya, Coria and Ferrero... so dirt...

    It can't be a Diablo, look at the number of pass strings at the top of the heart of the diablo, it gets 3 pass, Agassi's Ufo gets 4.
    The chase is still open

    Agassi has been known to switch racquets a few times, but last i heard he is still using his Donnay custom frame, but that was a long time ago, and i believe his string pattern (and perhaps frame) has changed since then. He used to play with a 20x21 pattern IIRC. (it was on the cover of a tennis mag if you'd liek to go count), this was probably ... 2-3 years ago.
