I like Brad Gilbert. So what!
What is your reaction to his comment tonight that Donald Young was playing better recently and a reason is his switch from a Head racquet to a Prince racquet therefore hitting with more spin.
That is a pretty broad statement and can be a little confusing to our clients. I don’t know about you but I have seen a lot of very good players generating a lot of spin, and, believe it or not they were hitting with Head racquets.
I know they don’t have much time to go into detail from the “booth” but perhaps saying which model, string pattern, string, tension, etc., also changed would have been helpful.
A lot of tennis players believe what these guys say and it makes it a little difficult to convince our clients that there may be other factors involved, not just the racquet brand.
I deal with every racquet brand so I don’t have a dog in this hunt, so to speak, but I am curious about your reaction.
What do you think?
