".....he signed a bunch of his playing racquets and gave them to Wilson per his contract. They give it to top Wilson reps as a gift. "
I'm intrigued Sup2Dresq---are you saying a standard Wilson endorsement contract requires the player to hand over their existing, soon-to-be superseded sticks back to Wilson ? Can Wilson compel their stars to do that ?
Fellow racquet nerds, any other ideas ?
