Heard before that all players sponsored by Babolat Racket should play with a special 125 years anniversary Color racket. Why Nadal is still playing with the normal one?

You mean the 135th anniversary, well it is simple, Nadal sticks to his normal things and doesnt wanne switch.

Well, we all know he doesnt actually use the cortex GT but rather older versions painted to look as such. my guess would then be that he probably uses the same rackets he's been using for years and doesnt cycle through them like someone using a currently produced racket could. babolat thus decided it wouldnt be worth it to either specially produce an old racket and paint it new or re-paint rafa's current rackets for one tournament then paint them back to their current form. i'm sure it's quite the ordeal for them to release a new racket model they want him to endorse.

Because he's Nadal. He can pretty much do whatever he wants. He doesn't want to switch then he doesn't have to.
