There is like no [k]factor nor wilson logos
kinda weird ehh?
^^^It's illegal in China, and considered an enormous disrespect to the heritage and culture of the Chinese.
A similar question came up recently in a post relating to Djokovic's bag at the Olympics (you'll likely find it if you do a search). The reason for the lack of logos on his bag is to comply with Olympic guidelines on the size of markings by non-official sponsoring companies. Rather than make a special bag compliant with the rules, Wilson likely just dropped the brand markings on his bag.
hahaha that sucks to have a no logo bag XD
Hmmm.....maybe that's why he lost? As we all know how much one's bag affects one's play.
It's not actually the bag that affected his play but what's inside his bag that affected his play.
Whew! As long as what's inside his bag didn't affect his play.
The rackets were at least stenciled, right?
yes they were stenciled

Why wouldn't the racquet logos count
[k]factor is a insult in chinese... meaning ***** **** ***
Lol .. Why's it disrespect?
I like it without logos! Wish mine were like that! A bit more understated...
it looks like crap imho... oh. and yeah he really needs to play with a bigger racquet...
Federer really should go to a bigger bag.
^^Agreed. BP hit the nail on the head. A bigger bag, along with bigger shoes and a tension-check from one of the coaches on these boards would have assured him the gold.
Yup, exactly! A bigger bag would give him more spin and a bigger sweetzone. And let's not underestimate the importance of switching to a bigger shirt, bigger shorts, and a bigger headband.
You know, the casual fan just doesn't realize that the smaller bags of the past have been left behind in today's game. They were too flexible. Back then, the construction was mostly canvas or in some cases plastic. But even then, the plastic was not the reinforced plastic that we see today.
Today's bags have better zippers which can handle the traffic of the players getting rackets out more often. Back in the olden days, players played with strings until they broke. Now, they play with strings for 7/9 games. Old bags with metal zippers just couldn't stand up to the stress.
There's also the weight factor. Newer bags are significantly lighter, using plastics with less filler. They prove that they can take the stress of the newer equipment which is rougher on the bags.
Also, the bags are longitudinally stiffer. This has to happen to keep pace with the modern game. Players of today are bigger and stronger. The bags have to keep pace or they'll fall apart.
The smaller bags just don't have the functionality needed by today's players. Federer clings to a smaller bag because that's what got him to the top. But clearly, Federer doesn't realize the importance of the new Mega bags like those produced by Volkl.
Ha ha ha!!! Classic!!! Good one, Rabbit!!! LOL :lol:
(You guys are too funny.)
This explains Fed's slump this year--he's been using the wrong size bag!
Bahahahha that's just gold!
well my thread is better muhahahaha :twisted:
beautiful. i'm so proud. simply beautiful post. thank you rabbit!
np...you know I kinda feel like it's my obligation to the casual fans around here to keep them informed on how the games changes.
Rabbit, great post! Of course, my favorite part of your commentary was the last sentence.
Thanks for sharing.
Fed need to change bag to a Midplus!
and there is always the matter of how well and true the bounce of the bag is when it hits the chair!
What, are you the new fun police?..
Why are you the only one that tells everyone when there are other threads on the same subject?
Get a life!!
I heard the olympic Federer bag is a paint job.
It's custom... if you were Federer would you rather have a big "W" on it or no advertising through your bag? Although maybe it's some strange olympic rule.
