    Especially given his recent success, why is Murray not using the Flexpoint (meaning endorsing the paintjob)? Is Head just trying to associate the Intelligence version with Murray for marketing purposes? Bringing back an older frame?

    Does Murray even have an endorsement deal with Head? If so, perhaps he refuses to use paintjobs like Sampras did.

    Head would be wise to find someone else. Murray is a big whiny loser and cannot fill Agassi's shoes. They'd be better off just allowing Agassi to endorse it even though he's retired.

    The players decide what racquets they use.

    Looks like it. He is listed on their website under the "pros" section.

    Murray shop

    It'll be interesting to see what racquet they sell via the 'pro-shop' on Murray's website (link below). I doubt they'll be able to sell the i-Rad, which means it'll probably be the Flexpoint despite all the pictures on the site that clearly show Murray with his i-Rad.

    The point is people always talking about Murray....... like him or not, any publicity is good for advertising (well except for steroid use!!)

    Correct answer. AA will have marketing appeal for years.

    Murray winning a few small tournaments and saying he listens to the Black Eyed Peas to enhance his 'street cred' isn't going to move product.
