They black out racquets if they have one sponsor but choose to play with another company's racquet. Sometimes with or without agreement from both companies. It happens a lot at the Oz Open because some players have not re-signed for the new year & may be holding out for more money or wanting to switch racquet companies.
January is a nervous, busy month for most racquet companies...
