List of racquets the pros really use
 
Paralleling this thread:http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=467205

Why don't we compile a list of "the real racquets" pros use vs. the racquets they "endorse"?

Who'd like to start? :twisted:

For clarification, let's make sure we have the format right (thanks Seth):

Can I request that the OP updates the first post with the list of pros and their racquets? :)

I edited, it just seemed much more logical to me, I reckon I didn't even look at the format. :neutral:

For reference, I think it's better left as a running dialog as pro's racquets (both "used" and "endorsed") will change over time.

Head Radical (think it's a PT57A) : Yonex V-Core 98D

Tomic is using the VCore Xi 98 I think

he was using the HEAD YT Radical MP 16x19 (TGT260.2) blacked out but back to the Yonex frame
