Pics of Nadal's Racquet
 
I managed to get some pics of Nadal's stick at the IW stringing room.

His strings are labeled as Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour Nadal, 15L. It is more likely an older, discontinued string, although I'm not sure what (Some have said that it is Kirschbaum). Anyway, the tension is 25 kilos, and his grip size is indeed 2.

From far away the cortex really does look real. Thanks for confirming it is just a paint job for me.

HOLY ****!!! Damn good eye whoever noticed that Cortex was painted. I didnt even noticed aha it looks so real from far distance. but hmm you think he really is using that Aero pro drive? or maybe he's using his older racquet the one he used in like 06 but with a apdc paint job? idk you guys think so? just curious. but thanks for the pics :D:)

He's using Duralast and a PJ of the APDC. He's using the APD. There are about a thousand threads on the matter....

Well, he won the tournament afterwards, didn't he? 6-1, 6-2, no less. I don't see a problem.:)

Plus, I couldn't find any red velvet carpets, royal pillows, or wool rugs.

kimbahpnam 03-23-2009 10:27 AM

and wouldn't it be only the towards the butt of the handle that would touch the floor because it protrudes outward?

penguyen17 03-23-2009 01:07 PM

Ooooh... So thats where Nadal's racket went off to when he sent it to be restrung during his match with Roddick and it was missing for a while.

Haha. Just Kidding
