Champions Tour Gear: Chang & Wilander
 
Flipped on Tennis Channel while waking up this morning to see Chang playing McEnroe. Chang had been using an APD (or PJ of such) for a while now, but this looked more blacked-out with the old style white logo marks @ 4 & 8. Also, looked more like a thinner, traditional beam (box even?), instead of an aero profile. Perhaps a proto of the '14 Storm / Control replacement? Something else PJ'ed for Babolat? Of course, I may have just been groggy and not seeing right.

Also, they had a montage of backstage clips of the old guys. One showed Wilander, saying he was strung @ 48 mains, 43 crosses. Looked like a thin beamed red frame, but couldn't make out the make or model. He played (and lost to) Courier in the earlier match, which was before I woke up.

It was part of the Powershares Series, this one from Tampa, so it's current.

Anyone see this? Have any insight?

Chang was using the Pure Drive in Tampa - that's from Nov 2012.......

Mats using the Donnay from a few years ago......red hoop with the silver shaft.

Сourrier also uses Donnay - The X-Series Red 99.

Courier actually uses the XP Dual 102.

Wilander uses the X Red. Not sure if it is the 94 or the 99 though.

I just participated in one of Mats' traveling clinics and had a look inside his bag. He has probably a dozen racquets in there, all different. He was using a kennex on the day of the clinic. Said he can't find a frame he really likes. I told him my friend has an old F200 like he used on the tour and he said the balls are too heavy these days to use that racquet...
