    Does anyone know what racquet Pete Sampras is using today? It was mentioned that it's a custom all black racquet. Does that mean it's not even made for public but only for him?

    Also, I wonder if Pete Sampras would continue to use the original PS 6.0 now that it's been re-issue.

    Is that the one you're referring to when he played Agassi at MSG 2011? i was wondering what that racquet he was using. Also, he's using a bigger head size now (100). I guess for more pop and age :).

    At the Champions Series I strung at last year, he was using a pure storm tour.
