    I know Nadal is marketed as using Pro Hurricane, but he really uses Duralast.

    So which other players do this?

    I'd imagine a lot of them do considering how easy it is.

    I think may be many pro's didn't know what they're playing.

    I read somewhere Sampras had a Nike logo sewn onto Wilson shoes for some time when he played.
