Yes, Zina used the Prince Graphite Oversize to win the U.S. Open Juniors.

Did any professional ever use the F295? Have heard it is a more powerful/stiffer version of the 200 endorsed by Willander. Want to buy one just because it is so darn pretty (to put next to my pro-vario on the wall)
Yes - I've posted earlier that I thought Woodforde used the 295 for a time. I have it on vhs, I just haven't had a lot of time to dig out the vcr, plug it in and watch it yet.
Woodforde - must be some early footage!

Argentina switched to the REsponse from the Woodie

Bit late to the thread, but i just spotted Johan Kriek with what i think is a Rossignol F-something-or-other during the WCT Vegas in 1984, it has the same piece in the bottom of the throat as the F200 and the F295 wasn't out yet for another couple of years:
Looks like a 200 which i didn't know he used. I was always under the impression he went from his signature frame straight to the 250.
Carlos Costa ( Spain ) plays with rossignol , this man is the actual manager of Rafa nadal , when your Rossignol model are out of stock have a very big problem , during many years are picup rackets of this model for all the world ,
Francis Roig the 2º coach of Rafa Nadal was playing with Rossignol, and remember a Derrick Rostagno
ohh i loose i my mind the mythic Manolo Santana
The picture resolution is fairly poor, so I would guess that it's the 250 with the shadow from the palm of his hand causing it to look like the racket has the webbing at the bottom of the throat like the F200. I can't imagine Johan using two such dramatically different rackets. The F250 volleys so crisply and precisely, while the F200 is not nearly as sharp at the net but allows fantastic workability from the baseline.
Anyone heard of my old racquet it's a Rossignol FT Legend - CPP constant perimeter principle??
I am still using it, I had only one until last month, i found one on **** and now remarkably found grommets which i was able to use.. I will attach pics when I work out how to on this thread..
Wow! Look at the string pattern on Woodforde's racquet. I count 12 mains.!?
