    If you think about it, he's gone through thousands of racquets. I presume, and I guess it's a big presumption that he doesn't reuse his racquets once his strings are done.

    So when he switches and gets a new racquet during a match, where do they go? I'd love to have one!

    I know that he used to travel to IW and Miami with 32 rackets. So I don't think he throws stuff away.

    They go back in his bag, and then on to his stringer to restring them ready for the next day.

    Auctions some of them off, probably gives them away after some use to tennis camps or something. Would love to get one for free.

    P1 cuts them open and does mad scientist experiments.

    They're trying to create the God racket so that they themselves can defeat Roger and Nadal in a 7 minute golden bagel.

    NO! I'm pretty sure FabFed IS FED... :wink:

    Every once in a while one ends up on the bay, sometimes for charity.

    My guess is that Fed has a livesize doll of Novak in his backyard.
    When he is done with a frame he uses it to beat up the novak-doll :)
