Player: Andre Agassi
(documented or estimated)
Andre Agassi was going through his rebellious phase in 1993, the year that HEAD created the RADICAL racquet for him. With its black and yellow design, it fast became known as 'The Bumblebee', and it appealed to the Las Vegan, who felt as though he could "express" himself with his new racquet. "Having something that was so different, it felt as though it was in harmony with my personality and my rebellion at the time. I liked it because it was an expression. It was the greatest expression. The only thing, besides your mouth, that you can talk with is your racquet," said Agassi, who won the 1994 US Open with his new RADICAL racquet. "If it looked the part and performed the part, I was pretty happy with it. HEAD built a racquet that was like an extension of your hand and from the first day I never looked back." The racket illustrated below was used by Andre during the French Open 1995. Donated to the Berlin Tennis Gallery by Head Austria, Bernd Hofer, Ass. PM Racket Sports, on June 26, 1995.
