Fred the Red. I just happened to see him when he was walking off the practice court. Apparently he was conducting an exhibition, and had just finished signing a bunch of autographs. Anyway, he was heading to the same box I was, so I just started talking to him when I saw his racquets. I asked if I could look at them, and he handed them both to me. They were both from St. Vincent, and he confirmed this when I asked him. I also asked if he ever used the later version, he said he has hit with them but liked the way the St. Vincents played.

He asked why I was so curious and I mentioned to him that I also play with the St. Vincents. He said cool, and made a joke. I then took a picture with him. By the way I did not notice any lead tape on the racquet. Although I did not focus on the strings, they looked like nartural gut.

PS; he still hits a ton and plays like he could still go out there and play on the pro tour.

Super, super nice guy.
