It sure sounded like they did. Lendl and Navratilova were quite outspoken about the Boz being the best racket they ever hefted. Living up to the terms of sponsorship, I suppose... Which Head did Navratilova pick up, and what did Lendl switch to?
Martina walked out on court with 2 Head Extreme Pro 2's.(by looks)
It was not a big production just, two racquets no bag. All the other players had bags and, Hingis had 2 different type of Yonex racquets and, hit a few balls with each before picking one to,play with.
I forget what, Lendl plays with now but, i would guess Head since he is coaching Murry.
Some people on the forum have bought Bosworth racquets but, move on.
Like Donnay there was a lot of hype and, again you see the 2 for 1 sale also, Yanna Wickmayer there own countrys player dumped them pretty quick!
