Hingis' New Raquet?

I just saw in pictures from her match tonite that she is using an all black raquet with no yonex sign on the strings. is it a yonex raquet or is she switching it up? does anyone know?

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

Who knows? Very interesting though - it would be a disaster if Yonex lost Martina after all these years ...

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

that aint a yonex. i agree with schorsch - it does look very similar to the racquet loit, schiavone and nadal use. i would not be shocked if martina had switched to babolat by the time this years us open comes around.

it's a shame, i don't understand why she would change. if martina leaves yonex than yonex have lost two big name players this year, hantuchova early in the year and now hingis.

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

Somehow I doubt she would change after all these years... but maybe she wants change.

I ♥ Hingis

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

It has been reported that Martina is not even touting a Yonex bag, instead, she is carrying an adidas racquet bag. So this rumour has some merit to it. However, not long ago during Wimbledon, a Yonex rep replied a fan on Hingis.org that she will be debuting the new Yonex RQ IS2 racquet at the US Open. If all of a sudden she switches to Babolat, that would be a huge blow for Yonex in terms of publicity. Compound it by the fact that Martina has been a great spokeswoman for Yonex over all these years with the company's sticks along with her GS titles, it would spell disaster for PR at the company.

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

sorry thomas.chung didn't mean for that to sound so nasty.

i was just reiterating the fact that this new frame looks nothing like a yonex, and everything like a babolat.

Re: Hingis' New Raquet?

Yes, its definitely not a yonex head, but I want Martina to stay with yonex - I don't know why, I just think the two belong together!
