Del Potro’s Down To His Last Two Racquets

Tennis players with racquet sponsors can have as many as they please, right? Well, that’s not how Juan Martin del Potro works. I’ve heard in the past he’s very specific about his racquets, and it’s so much so that he only has two left right now as he plays in the Paris Masters. How does that work?

“I send to the stringer very quick, and they string for me, like in every half an hour or every hour I’m changing the racquets after one set. But I think it’s enough for close the year. I hope for next year I will get more racquets.”

Delpo’s explanation for not getting additional racquets now? “They’re not the same.”

Just hope he doesn’t break a string!
