No it was the Ultimate Pro, a thick beamed quite powerful racket that at first he liked and played with it in a exhibition. Then later used in a tournament (Hamburg 1990) and lost, then he switched in the middle of a match to his old Pro One and stick with it, later Agassi said he wanted easy power, he also said when he went back to the Pro One "it's like going back to an old friend"
He could hit with condifidence again and reached the final of the FO.
