I had a message typed about how horrible 'those' rackets were...Tenex, Add-In, Tensor, even the Garcia X15...with their string-eating grommets and creaky handles. Fortunately, not many folks played with them enough to need restringing. Didn't want to speak ill of Playboy . Surprised they put their logo on such a lousy design but I'm sure the Taiwan factory was happy to oblige.

Would have been a strange racket to use during a mixed doubles match!

Looks like Patti was a year older than Jimbo...not like that mattered! Pretty girl, for sure.
