    I just looked the July US Tennis magazine and there is picture of Stefan Edberg using Tour90 on some exhibition match. I could not believe that Wilson will go that far and make contract with Stefan (who plays rarely) to indorse new racquet. I doubt that he bought them him self.

    I read yrs. ago Edberg had 200 Pro Staffs that were "drilled" to the specs. he used during his playing days put away for him . He always used the Pro Staff sans bumper guard.

    Edberg is retired but did he use a real retail tour 90 or was it a paintjob of his 'custom' PS 6.0 95"?

    I believe they are painted to look like the latest "flavor" wilson introduces . Edberg is a great rep. for wilson . A world class player that had & still has everyones respect.

    Tour 95

    The racquet that he is endorsing is a PS Tour 95 and not a Tour 90. Take a good look at the picture in tennis magazine and you will see the rounded bean and the yellow painting in the PWS.
    Is it a real Tour 95? Don't really care, but you can be sure that it isn't a PS 6.0, because it's not a boxed frame.

  6. There were pictures here of Edberg playing the Tour 90 a year ago.

    I've seen pictures of him playing with a Hyper PS 6.1 as well. He played the exhibition at Queens last year with a T90.

    I heard Edberg still 'works' for Adidas too. He's a worthy ambassador for the sport in general.

    It's possible that he's got a lifetime contract with each. Agassi recently signed a lifer with Head.

    So what you are saying is that he gets Head for life!
