    Was watching the Verdasco-Djokovic match today from China Open and noticed twice that Verdascos Babolat racquet has the YY yonex buttcap. It was very noticable when they showed in slo-mo his forehand winner at 2:4 on 3rd set.
    I know he used Yonex RDIS 200 for a while and had great results; but why would the handle or buttcap by Yonex on a clearly babolat head shape ?

    Just a guess, but perhaps the two rackets have a different shaped grip and he has a custom Yonex shaped grip on his stick. Pros have been known to have rackets customized.

    That's the new Babolat brand logo.
