Devilito 06-04-2013 05:35 AM

RodSmooth 06-04-2013 06:18 AM

Wait what?

C'mon

He couldn't go with prince or something? Smh

phnx90 06-04-2013 06:46 AM

Francis27 06-04-2013 10:41 AM

What was his former racket?

uk_skippy 06-04-2013 12:14 PM

He's been testing various Babolat frames, along with Head ones too.

And he did also tested the Almagro and Robredo racket.

Let's wait and see the final choice...

Why won't tecnifbre take him back? Unless he is even sick of his major bullit elite now as well....

Crisp 06-04-2013 03:42 PM

I imagine testing like this goes on quite a bit. I can remember Roman Prokes saying at a conference I once attended that Agassi used to try out every major rivals racquet because he wanted to know what he felt so that he knew how to hurt him on court. Verdasco is obviously not doing this but looking for a new frame himself. I think he should go home to Tecni, his best results were with them and he was definitely comfortable, even if he has to takes pay cut... Back yourself in and get the results.

Rafa let him borrow a racquet I see.

Babolat makes sense for his game. Loopy forehand and APD go hand-in-hand.

McLovin 06-06-2013 02:50 AM

Didn't he try switching to a Yonex a few years back? I think he played a couple of tournaments with the RDiS 200, then went back to his old frames.

EDIT:

Yeah, here we go, back in 2010:

I watched him playing good with rdis200, and win some tournament.
Maybe $$ matter put him away from it.

Can't believe money kept him away from YY. they're notorious for paying big bucks for racquet deals.

True. Plus, as edwincen said, he won the tournament with it!

That doesn't mean it isn't necessarily Rafa's frame.

kimguroo 06-06-2013 08:35 AM

Who was hitting with verdasco in that pic?
Probably Nadal??? They practiced together at French open and there is a pic of nadal holding a verdasco's racket. Possibly verdasco was just hitting with some of nadal's or his team's babolat racket to feel.

Yep. It was funny that verdasco won tournament with Yonex then switches to dunlop. After he went dunlop, his name is almost forgotten.
Can't blame that pros follow $$$ instead of right equipment.

I think I saw verdasco practiced with head rackets a few week or months ago....

True, a test without his own string is worth nothing. You think it's possible he just borrowed a frame from Nadal and let the RG string team string it with a BB orignal?

Doubtful. I was only speculating. I would be more inclined to believe that he tried one that was modified to the specs of his current racket to do a direct comparison.
