What's Simon's racquet?
 
It's curious that this hasn't been discussed already, seeing how Simon may break in top 5 soon. So, what's under the MG Prestige MP paint?

Did I hear the T Masters Cup announcer -- I think Gimelstob -- say that Simon's racket was an inch-and-a-half longer than normal?

If I heard correctly, is that so?

28.5 is one looong stick.

Another pro using the Pro Tour 630! It's getting boring!

It is Microgel Prestige Pro. same racket as many pros use these day. TW gave it one of the highest ratings ever.

Simon's racquets has a 18x20 string pattern. The MG Presige Pro is 16x19.
Check out the code in the throat

Uh huh, Overall 79 is one of the highest ratings ever. I really do wonder what kind of person you are in real life as you just troll the boards like no other, more so than ummm I guess no one comes close to ya. :?

I was fairly close to him while he was practicing. No, I didn't hold one of the frames, but I am aware of the various Head frames over the years. This one seemed to have indents, dimples at 8 and 4 o'clock. I believe that its an iPrestige.

It looks like to me that the code in the throat says PT57A for the Pro Tour 630.

Also listen to the sound his racket makes. It is exactly same as the Microgel prestige. It has very distinct unique sound. also why not email him on his site and ask him. i heard he still answers his own emails cause he is not yet a mega star.

is that the site? because that is another guy with the same name. emailing him questions about tennis might confuse him terribly.

LOL,,, i think that is his uncle. Maybe he know what racket Simon is really using. Or just email the president of HEAD and ask him.

Or maybe you could look at this photo and see that it says in the throat of Simon's racquet PT57A which is the code for the Pro Tour 630.


*Edit* If someone with better computer skills than me make the above photo larger. For some reason I can't.

Fedace 11-19-2008 08:53 AM

^^It is just a code for the stringing pattern. so the stringer doesn't get confused and string it like Wilson K90. LOL.....those codes get mixed up all the time...
