    I happened to read an interview of Fabrice Santoro on the Tennis Masters Series Cincy website & in it he mentions that he's in the development with a company called Inesis to develop a lighter racquet for his aging body. In the Q&A section he talks about how he became a 2-hander as well. It was nice for me to see some press regarding him, He's one of my favorite players because of his unorthodox style.
    Can anyone shed any light on Inesis?

    Inesis is the house brand of the French sporting goods chain Decathalon. I've read some mixed reviews about their stuff in British magazines. It looks interesting, but the only way to get them in the US is to go to teh Decathalon store up in Boston.

    What is Fabrices setup ? Are these rackets similar to the babolats in that most pros need to lead them up ? Whats his stringing choice and tension ?
    TIA, Joe

    I believe Santoro's actual frame is a ProTour 630 with iRadical 630 cosmetics, that's blacked out with stencil ink.
