    Hi doesn't use a TF320. I believe he uses one of the older Major frames painted to look like the 320.

    At Wimbledon his rqts were strung with Red Code in the mains and X1 in the crosses. The tension escapes me, but he wanted it strung with 10% pre-stretch so it was strung on the Sensor we had there.

    Regards

    Paul

    The racket is out of the mold of the MAJOR Bullit Elite (16x19 pattern). Same mold was used for T.Fight 325 but with 18x20 pattern.

    i havent tried 16, but i've used x-1 17. its a bit stiff once you first use it, but once you wear it in for about an hour or two, it softens up and plays real nice. really good on the serves.

    I believe the consensus is that his glasses are Oakley "Half-jackets."



    ^New guy who says he skips last hole stringing.
    That is crazy are you unaware of the Paintjobs that pervade professional, sponsored tennis.

    and whats with the bold.

    "Half-jackets"?

    what's that all about?
    can someone tell us more?
    are these optical glasses or do they help with ones vision (eg. by increasing contrast)?

    i am eager to find out more about this, since i have some problems with my vision and am looking for a solution..

    i sometimes feel i dont see the balll well enough...

    Oakley frames have crazy names like Flak Jacket and Radar, Janko's are believed to be Half Jacket XLJ and that he uses prescription lenses in them.

    I have some of his racquets also. Lead at 3 and 9 but otherwise look like 320's to me. Haven't lifted the head guard, but one is currently unstrung so I might take a look.

    You're not gonna play like Janko! Give up pantsy!! :D

    btw, we can probably hit soon now that the AO is over. I kinda stubbed my toe and possibly broke it last week so I'm out for a few more days I'd say though.

    i believe he uses just the regular half jackets because in his pictures you can see that the lenses are more round unlike the more rigid and squarelike ones in the XLJ's.

    Janko wears contact lenses when he doesn't have his Oakley glasses on! This was mentioned on the Tennis Channel maybe 6 months ago.

    actually this is not his racquet anymore..
    he's currently using the tfight 325 with the 18x19 pattern. not sure though if it's the regular or the XL version

    I know this thread is 3 years old now, but I'm still confused about what Tipsarevic is actually using? Does anyone have resent pictures or even Janko's racquet from this year or the last?
