    How much would Federer have to pay to end his lifetime contract with Wilson? And would Head be willing and able to pay that much on top of whatever they'd need to offer Federer to get him to even consider a switch?

    No chance... Head rackets can't serve,,,, roger needs a good serving racket, that is his main weapon.

    Just a custom paint job for someone who thought it might be funny. Move on people. Federer isn't going away from Wilson

    Just looks like a speed mp to me.

    The decals on the second photo are different sizes and placement from each other.

    RF on that stick = Really Fake. Seems to me they left off a couple of vowels...'RaFa' would leave Babs before the magic-painted 97 is abandoned.

    It is a pretty cool painted racquet though. I picked one up a few weeks ago and I'm loving playing with it! Dare I say, I'm going to switch to it over my Volkls! :eek:

    Let's not forget Ivanisevic... and I'm sure many others...

    It's the player and their technique, not just the racquet...

    Are people (Nostradamus) suggesting that if Federer or Sampras used a PT10 or PT57A, they would not be as good servers as they are... Preposterous!!!

    Raja might consider switching to Head in a few years time so that he can maintain the tech advantage if Head can convince the Wilson rocket scientists in charge of project Bazooka to switch over. ;)
