Will Delpo ever get rid of k-factor

LOL, this the biggest mystery in the long history of paintjobs.

Wasn't he practicing with a Steam/Juice paintjob last year?

paul_tennis 01-10-2013 12:46 PM

His facebook page posted a photo a couples of hours ago practicing with the KFactor paint job at Melbourne Park...

Here is the link:

people complain when players use paintjobs.....and they complain when they don't.

I'm a firm believer that it's simply superstition. He hurt his wrist with the Juice paintjob, said 'never again.' Might even be losing a lot of money but he doesn't care. If true, I dig it.

That's assuming he's actually using a kfactor...?

augustobt 01-10-2013 01:31 PM

Why he would use a paint job of a stick that they don't even sell anymore?

I've seen claims on these boards that they are one of the classic hyper frames?

Prostaffer 01-10-2013 04:33 PM

Little known fact...there are only two of those sticks left in the world.

He has both of them.

Geology_Rocks! 01-10-2013 05:30 PM

I've seen somewhere that he has only 3 or 4 of those left.

I guess he will be forced to switch eventually.

That will start "THE DECLINE OF DELPO"

Funny I have 3 or 4 of them new collecting dust, I'll bet he would love them

hps 95 iirc.

Wilson probably knows that Fed's signature on a racquet is worth around three top 20 players' endorsements; maybe they don't really care about the poor guy....

I take it you've never seen Victor Hanescu play?

heninfan99 01-11-2013 09:11 AM

All iterations of the six.ones have their pocket of fans. Wilson should at least keep making the K and the BLX(v1) It's not like they won't sell well, right? Give me a Hyper over the Amplifeels please....

Haha, I have. But there is a huge difference between delpo and hanescu. Don't see why wilson cant give their second highest ranked male player a new pj instead of sporting an old one:confused:

To my knowledge, Delpo uses the K95 paint-job purely out of superstition. He won his first and only Slam with that PJ, and for his very short stint with the BLX PJ, he most likely just couldn't get comfortable with it because if anything didn't go right, he most likely attributed it to the fact he didn't have his "lucky" PJ, including his wrist injury.

This!

Doesn't make sense a top 10 player don't sell rackets!
