    I would think Babolat has a big budget this year for signing new players since two of their top players retired and the other hurt. They will make some big moves if someone is available,

    One of the least enjoyable male pros to watch. Suppose if he's paying for the racquets it's a boon.

    With Princes current financial situation it doesnt surprise me in the least that its probably no longer sponsoring lower ranked players. For the mens side I could see them only keeping sponsorships of Ferrer,Isner and the Bryans.

    Spoke with some guys from Prince this weekend, and they said the new owners are all in when it comes to doing things right, and that 2013 will be a great year for the brand.

    False: they are working on at least 1, but won't necessarily be available next year.

    There will still be frames with ports in 2013.
