So I think a lot of people knows that Thiem is now using the newest pure strike under the newest PJ. After he joins Babolat he was using the 2014 1st gen pure strike (which is a very unique frame, a lot of people hate it but small amount of people love it )for a long time, then skipped the 2nd gen (which a lot of people absolutely love it including TW playtesters), and from the bridging of 2019 he switched to the 3rd gen pure strike. Just a very interesting story. Also another rising talent Felix Alliassime was using the 1st gen for his entire junior career, played with the same frame under the 2nd gen PJ for a couple months, and then switched to the Pure Aero VS, which is basically a Aero Storm with a different type of Cortex.
Just how interesting is that a widely loved frame for in most reviews and playtests but two of the major pro players stayed with the older one that not so many people like.
