Kim Clijsters used the PD original. She switched to the Cortex version at some point but I’m not sure which one!

In honor of Dustin Brown announcing this year is his last. He at least had PJs of the 2012 and 2015 versions, I think both were purchased retail if I remember hearing correctly. He didn’t have a stencil in his 2015 Pure Drive when he beat Nadal at Wimbledon 2015
