Krejicova’s racquet

I demoed it a month ago. It was fun to hit penetrating, loopy shots, but thats not my game. I prefer a tighter pattern, thinner beam, racquet. But if I were a fan of the thick beam, tweener (but player stick leaning) racquet...its worth a try.

How do you know Head did not provide her with rackets??
Players have mental blocks (Novak with 360+, Federer with tuxedo, Nadal with underwear (JK)) and sometimes stick with older PJs…

I didn't consider this a possibility. Thanks for explaining.

It may be that the old Extreme model is still on sale in Krejcikova's native country. More likely though, she may not have a contract with Head because until recently, she was primarily known as a doubles player. Krejcikova's success in singles is very recent. The Extreme Graphene 360 model she plays with is more flexible and less head light than the new 360+ model. Let's see if she is fitted with a racquet with the new paint job for the final.

She is HEAD TO TOE in Head, why would you even think she has no contract with Head???

She has the contract, she has the 360+ PJ frames (TGT285) but prefers this PJ, again, as I hinted, like a few others…

Regardless of the Paintjob, she is using the TGT285, previous generation of extreme, like Berettini

Why? Because Head has not bothered to furnish her with a racquet with the new 360+ paint job. That's why.

Do you understand English??
I clearly told you she HAS the latest paintjob rackets but prefers older paintjob (see Murray latest example, or Novak 2019-2021)
Do you really believe she would be advertising Head clothes and shoes with no contract??

YES. I understand English. And, I understand marketing. Clothing and racquets are two different divisions of the same company and she may have different endorsement deals with each division. Krejcikova is not a big star like Federer who can override management's decision if she prefers a certain color racquet. It does Head no favors to have a player who promotes a version of a racquet that they no longer sell. The point of endorsement deals is to increase sales. If I were Head, I would not pay her to play with the old paint job. And, I doubt they do.

Dude, research a little bit who you’re talking to before you make even bigger fool out of yourself.
Yes, Head sponsored player is in the final of the FO….

Mertens, Djokovic, Murray, Federer, Ballisavilli, and MANY others…stars or not.
You are clueless how things work.

I didn’t notice head stencil on string…any idea why?

She was making the most insane angles on that backhand side. And to think before the match with Sloane she was thinking about not even going out on court.
Naomi Osaka done opened up the mic. People can actually talk about the stress of the tour.. because so many tennis players have a number, an amount of points, a lot of things to obsess over as it is.. more so than any other sport are their so many items.

Trying to be nice and share info directly from Head over and over...whenever you guys asked...
Used multiple examples of Murray, Mertens, Djokovic...and still same crap
Had to wonder if the person understood English
I guess so. I just haven’t been on these threads in awhile and not used to the edgey replies. Carry on

She is using something worthy of a Wimbledon Singles Simi Final..
Let's see if it can get her to the Final..
Perhaps even a singles GS Championship again..
