Khachanov' change racquets in Madrid

Watched his match against Verdasco yesterday. He began it with Head racquet (also carried Head bag - his current sponsor, i guess) but then switched to his belowed Blade without stenciled W logo on strings. Did somebody notice this? Is it ok for a sponsor contract? Seems he doesn't like Head that much. Maybe his poor results this year are because of racquet change?

I think he played a Wilson "Blade" last week in Munich. And against Munar: https://twitter.com/hashtag/khachanov
Switching back to using his H22 (Blade paintjob) in Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian wells, Miami, Monte Carlo and Barcelona as well, has not helped his game. His results have been abysmal throughout this year. Apparently, he has yet to make a decision whether he will be switching to Head.

He changed after Dubai, for the first match of IW.

Not only has he been switching racquets, but he also updated his spec. Was at about a 332 swingweight last year, now at 341. This reduced maneuverability due to a higher swingweight with his unique forehand backswing has hurt his game, in my opinion.

Thats wierd, always read that he uses a relative light racquet.
