    Am I the only one who thinks that the shape of his new kfactor 95 looks pretty much like maybe a head pro tour 630...could be the angle though!

    Any views on this?

    It would appear to me that Wilson has come up with a HEAD racquet clone. Natalie Dechy is also using this racquet.

    Thats pretty pathetic, considering all the other racuets he could use, plus why have a HEAD racquet Pjed as a Wilson?

    yea its obviously a pj. for one it doesnt have the trademark balance things at 3 and 9 o clock...also he's not gonna switch to a new racquet over night. so if anything hell keep using his prestige pjed as a wilson.

    Doubtlessly a paintjob, no pro is likely to switch rackets that quickly, let alone just before the biggest tournament of the year.

    He's been trialling Wilson's since at least January, I took (and posted) pics of him using blacked out Wilson's way back then at the Sydney International.

    Are we sure this isn't one of those painted up as a K-Factor? These blacked-out frames back then were Wilsons, they even had Wilson grommets.

    Tursunov trialling Wilsons - confirmed with Pic

    Nice pics...those supposedly blacked out wilsons don't have the pws at 3 and 9 as well...maybe it is a wilson after all....although to me it looks exactly like my head pro tour 630 with a new paint....could also be a prestige without the grommets!? Did anyone notice if Djokovic's Wilson/head/whatever has the pws?

    The nBlade doesn't have the PWS at all. Not ALL Wilson racquets do, it would seem...

    Yeah, I noticed that Dechy's racket wasn't like a Kfactor when I was watching the mixed doubles Roland Garros final.
