I have not payed with these racquets (hint hint Volkl), but boy does the technology sound cool. The German company has developed DNX Technology - a new unique material structure featuring high-strength micro tube construction that is 25 times stronger than regular carbon fibers. Its a whole new material class whose properties represent the fourth dimension of carbon (whatever that means). Basically, super strength characteristics.

They are working with me and we're working together, and I'm extremely excited about it because it's kind of the first time I've had a real opportunity to work with the designers, with the people who kind of tailor make them for me," Blake told Tennis Week in a recent interview. "I really do hope, and in a lot of the tests, Tom Ross who I work with at Prince that does the racquets, has told me that he's made these models for me and we're getting closer to the one that's going to be on the shelves and stuff. He's kind of had a few other people trying them, and they all seem to like it. It's exciting to me to know that people are liking what I like in terms of a racquet."

I apologize for the lack of postings. No excuses, for those who are actually coming to WATR (all two of you...not counting Jay and Scott). But I'm back in business!
Here are some VERY cool shots of Andre Agassi and Roger Federer playing on the tennis court at the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, UAE. The hotel is known as the best in the world...looks like it may live up to the hype...
Not a lot to say, the pics truly speak for themselves, except that my guess is they don't chase the balls...
Visit the Burj Al Arab hotel website
