    Pros Using Modern Prince

    In addition to Isner and Andujar, as previously mentioned: Joran Vliegen, Marcel Granollers, Shuai Peng, Katarzyna Piter, and Ana Lena Friedsam (although she sometimes switches from a stencilled Prince Textreme Warrior to an unstencilled 2017 WIlson Burn in the middle of a match) all use current...

    this atrocity of a tennis shoe

    Even though Nike doesn't technically own Cole Haan, much of its leadership, including its CEO, Jack Boys, came from Nike/Converse.

    this atrocity of a tennis shoe

    Cole Haan is a Nike company, much like Converse is a Nike company. Converse also put out a Jack Purcell EVO tennis shoe a few years ago, but the purpose of these Cole Haan and Converse releases is to give their consumer base, who don't really shop for Cages/Barricades, want big logos, or are...

    Verdasco´s real racquet?

    Verdasco is the only player I know that has been known to play with every major racquet company except for Wilson.

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    I think a player will do whatever it takes to make a racquet look like whatever their contract stipulates. It's nothing new, but this one is pretty obvious, like Qiang Wang's Yunlop.

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    Definitely not a Head frame. It was odd to me that she would even switch from Babolat to Head in the first place, knowing there is nothing in Head's lineup that matches the super high RA's and super powerful Babolat frames she's used to.

    Ramos Vinolas Pj

    I'm not sure if you saw correctly, but I'm 100% sure this is not the 2015 PJ in his hands:

    Ramos Vinolas Pj

    ARV has always played with a Pure Drive but he played with the 2015 PJ in the semis against PCB today. The last two rounds, he played with the 2012 RG PJ. He’s yet to play with the newest 2021 PJ, but it’s always nice to see players use racquets that are a decade old.

    Roland Garros Postponed by 1 week

    It doesn't just mess up the grass season, but it's also extremely disrespectful of other tournaments that still forged ahead without any fans and took a hit. I live in Charleston but the tournament is not allowing for any fans. Same goes for current tournaments in Bogota, Sardinia, and...

    Bone Spurs and Elbow Surgery :Racquet Suggestions?

    I tore my ECU tendon in my wrist after playing with the Pure Drive and Pure Aero for years since juniors. I switched to the DR98 and now the Phantom 100G with no issues since the Babolats. Any racquet with an RA under the low 60's and stringing in the high 30's did the trick for me.

    The Prince Tour 12-Bag has a neon green liner all throughout, with the exception of the thermal compartment.

    Sock is with his older "America" Pure Aero VS?

    The flag editions were supposed to coincide with the lead-up to the 2020 Olympics, but you know...Coronavirus happened. Benoit Paire and Taro Daniel are also still playing with the France and Japan editions, respectively. To be honest, the pros can play with whatever PJ they want. Sabalenka and...

    Petkovic with the new Pro Staff PJ (Yes it really is that subtle)

    Is this just the German Flag PJ that was meant to coincide with the Olympics?

    Lucas Pouille to Babolat (Pure Drive)

    Credit to Rubin though; he just got the ball back and waited for Pouille to make the error. Lucas just could not find the court. It wouldn’t surprise me if he goes the Jaziri or Granollers route and goes back to his Prince unstencilled.

    Lucas Pouille to Babolat (Pure Drive)

    He posted on his Instagram not too long ago that he's officially now with Babolat, and using/endorsing the PD. I wonder if Isner is eventually going down that route too...

    Are Sampras and Rafter only players who retired with win in last single match?

    Andrea Jaeger, former world no.2, won her last match, a first round match in Houston 1987, before giving Lori McNeil a walkover with a shoulder injury. She retired at the age of 19, citing the shoulder injury, and never came back. Mary Pierce won her first round match against Ai Sugiyama in...

    Serena Williams blacked-out Wilson

    It's definitely not her Blade 104 mold, as this model has no Power Holes, as I said in a previous post. This one clearly has traditional grommets.

    Serena Williams blacked-out Wilson

    Whatever it is, it doesn't have the Power Holes that the SW104 has along the 3 and 6 o'clock parts of the head. It looks like it has regular grommets.

    Feliciano Lopez still playing with Wilson's Skunk cosmetic from last year's French Open?

    Sabalenka is still playing with her zebra Wilson frame too. Maybe they just like it?

    New Prince Beast/Warrior PJ?

    I randomly saw Shuai Peng playing the USOpen qualies and saw that she was swinging a new Prince PJ. Is this the new Beast or Warrior PJ, which she previously used? Or a totally new line?

    Old adidas grass court shoes

    The grass season is like two weeks long and grass courts aren't really very common for the average tennis player, so it's understandable why it's not really marketed and produced for the masses.

    Are Barricades discontinued?

    Ugh I just bought the SoleCourt too. Any idea if it will have the 6 month warranty?
