Camilla Giorgi Mystery Stick

Anyone know what Giorgi was swinging at Wimby? White racket with green, no labels. I thought it might be the new Strike but there’s a tag on her hoop that says Handmade In Italy.

Looks like a generic, featureless, 16x19 98" mold that a lot of new racket companies are using. Definitely not her Pure Control that she used to use under new paint.

The most interesting in this picture is the grip size i.e. the space for two fingers.

And I read here at TT that guys using L2, even L1 grip size without any space for finger ...

She is joyless on the court. Doesn’t even give a sincere handshake. And she won an event early this year and even then didn’t even acknowledge the crowd at the end. She just looks like she’s always saying “Get me out of here.”

Can we keep the female player bashing to GPPD?

Yeah like i said above, a cold fish.

Kinda reminds me of the bride in "a night at the roxbury" when she shows her evil side lol

i dont read any comments about her tennis, only how she looks. Sharapova and a lot others dont smile the whole time on court too.
I think she has some good points :p

She's been quoted as saying that she doesn't enjoy tennis, it just a job for her so judge her on court demeanor the same way you can judge a cubicle worker at the end of a 8 hour shift.

Maybe she was or is pushed by her parents like other women in the past? Anyway even Agassi admitted that he hated playing tennis.

Probably, for us tennis enthusiasts is a difficult concept to grasp but is not uncommon occurrence for many professional athletes in many sports.

I would figure if you're going to invest the time and effort and put up with the demands of a pro tennis player, you should probably enjoy it. Too cool for school. Nike Kyrgios it's only tennis. Not that important. Gimmie players with a passion to be the best.

The outcome of tennis matches is only determined by the points won by the players themselves, not by a judge or audience. Please keep it that way! Also those pro am matches with vips and sponsors like in golf is disgusting. Having a lot of money, or talent for acting does not make one talented for sports too!
If Camilla is allowed by her chaperon dad to show her mystery stick to me than i show her mine ;)

it s an handmade raquet , producted by an automobile factory owner that likes tennis, called Fabrizi , in Italy, basically it s an H22 , she tried and liked and she wanted 50. After that , she started to have problem with his wrist and she back to babolat. Anycase she doesnt have a contract with Babolat currrently.

So of the shelf Babolat frames are better than pro stock Wilson copies. ;)
I already told that on this forum but pro stock obsessed are hard to convince :-D:happydevil:

Say what you want about the girl, she doesn't leave anything on the court(uh...game wise). She isn't the greatest strategist(she's needed a real coach for some time now), but damn does she play like she's on fire. She is one of the few women worth watching in tennis anymore. And seeing her in person is impressive in more ways than one - she makes most top ranked women look like they are hitting at club player speeds - literally. I mean, I just watched a few matches at the USO on YouTubez where women were landing second serves below 70mph. Dunno about you guys, but I wouldn't pay to see that when I'm disappointed seeing it for free. It might be just a job to Giorgi, but she takes her job seriously and arrives on the court to get the job done; no gamesman screaming/pee breaks/timeouts/'injuries', no challenging good calls to go sit in the shade for another 20 seconds between games, no stupid drama, no shouting to umpires about being a mother, or threatening to strangle them, or accusing them of cheating or being against her or her entire gender, no outright cheating/breaking the spirit of the rules, no excuses about losing, just great tennis. It's very refreshing.

In fact, come to think of it, those points are one of the reasons folks prefer to watch the mens tennis over the womens. It's not just that it is quantifiably better tennis, it's also less drama no one really wants to see.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED your commentary on drama-less tennis ... until you said we prefer men’s because there’s less drama. IMO ATP has allowed most tournaments to devolve into kindergarten field trips. For better or worse, commercial audiences (i.e., less tennis savvy) want to see drama. Why else would Kyrgios, Fognini, Paire, etc., get main courts at best time slots. I too enjoy watching “troubled artists” like them hit their best shots, but I question why I have to suffer watching them hit at least a dozen completely stupid shots or pushes for every highlight shot. But please let me take off my shirt before anyone wants to shoot me for such opinions.

Not sure if anyone answered the OP here, but the all white racquet with bright green on the bottom is the Pure Strike Project 17 Wimbledon version. These were released about a year ago - not this Wimbledon but the one prior. I had a couple of them before I decided to go in a different direction.

It’s the Pure Strike VS Tour/Pure Control Mold

Watch some old McEnroe or Jimmy Connors matches. Amazing drama.

Yes, awesome drama with Mac and Jimbo. But also solid tennis (for the athleticism and technology of the time). I enjoy the drama, but only if it’s accompanied by some great tennis. Drama + mediocre tennis makes me change the channel or walk to another court. I see a lot of that lately. On the other hand, Medvedev’s drama-filled whooping of Nole in Cincinnati was very entertaining (even though I wasn’t then a Medvedev fan).
