Yes, I understand. I'm just trying to understand how the racquet companies negotiate with players outside of the top 50 or so. Although Malisse was obviously a top 20 player at some point in his career, I assume Prince is less likely to fawn all over a talented player in his 30s who has fallen out of the top 50.
The Prince Retro Mid is a racquet that I was not familiar with. It looks like it would be right up my alley. My first racquet was the Prince CTS Precision 90. Like I said before, I own the Diablo mid and midplus. The Mid is 93 in. and the midplus is 100 in. I like them but they do not swing like my old CTS Precision.
