Tomic blacked out racket
 
Just found this video of the Hopman Cup:

Doesn't look like a Yonex to me.

Nah I don't think it looks like a yonex either. Maybe back to his old head? His sister uses Babs so anyone's guess at this point.

Midguytenis 12-28-2012 01:22 AM

Head racquet.

Midguytenis 12-28-2012 01:24 AM

I wonder if Yonex decided to break the contract after seeing and hearing all he did last year which was embarrassing to Yonex to have a player sponsored at gold price to be worth it of nothing.

Looks isometric to me

uk_skippy 12-28-2012 02:33 AM

Buttcap looks like a Head (white with black insert).

Regards

Paul

def not isometric, has a very oval shape to it

Head racquet - as pointed out by Midguytennis and uk_skippy.

I wish Yonex would drop Tomic. An overated, rude player.
He hasn't won anything and acts like a super tennis star.

Federerkblade 12-28-2012 03:30 AM

My mistake. He was saying earlier this year how the yonex suited him

niktub 12-28-2012 04:03 AM

straight outside edges
 
it might be the same frame as Tsonga's.
sort of PST PSLt or new mold

after a second look: oval not straight(stringjob illusion)
Head 1st Bet

Dollars can change your taste.

Would like to see him return to Head, the Radical always seemed like a pretty good fit for him and I don't think the racket change helped him.

Humm I actually mentioned it an hour before hahhaha :twisted:

If anything happened, it is Yonex that dropped him, no results because of his work ethic, nothing to do with the racquet, anybody can play very well with Yonex, I just switched to the 89 tour from Pro Staff 85 that I used for a long long time and I think Yonex is a way better racquet.

Anyway, Tomic has been mocked everywhere, even in Australia, his home country, I would not doubt if yonex decided to end the contract eralier because of last year's embarrassment. I think He is darn good player, but definitely not a slam champion.

I'm not really familiar with this stuff but is Tomic considered by Australians as one of them?

What I mean is... his parents are from Yugoslavia, he was born in Germany and was 3 years old when they migrated to Australia (?).
Everybody loves a champion and this kid can play but his attitude not to mention his fathers' attitude makes me wonder how is he regarded in Australia?

Up until about March this year he was :)

JTJet 12-28-2012 10:30 AM

On a side note, do I hear Tomic maturing? Talking about "learning his lesson."

And I mentioned it before that. But who cares, it's not about points here. Also the kids think Tomic is great, I did some work for Tennis Australia with their Super 10's program and 70% of the boys said Tomic was their favourite player.

Watching the hopman cup now. Butt cap looks like head.

airdupont 12-29-2012 01:27 AM

What's strange is that he still has the Yonex bag...

raging 12-29-2012 01:50 AM

not really...he won't have signed anything yet. May still stay with yonex.
