I had a friend say this to me last week, when we were playing against a guy in doubles who was using Babolat (AeroPro Drive I think). Back when I was in university, Babolat did not have great reputation. Everyone say, they make shoddy quality light racquets for kids and girls. I thought that Nadal change that though. I know their racquets still light, but I thought that they were seen as legit brand now. Do Babolat still suffer from prejudice as a 'non-masculine' racquet?
