Hello Dan,
Please ask these players on how do they select a suitable equipment for themselves and how much time they spend with any new equipment before making up their mind?

PS: I am eagerly waiting for the Butterfly Marcos Freitas blade review which you promised sometime ago. :)
Thanks,
KM1976

Please ask why don't they use carbon in their blades?

Could you ask them how many (same kind of) blades they usually test before they pick up those they actually use and do they have any weight prefernces.

Thanks:).

Can you ask them if they are planning on coming across the pond anytime? I've got a reverse pendulum with their names on it;)

Will you play a game against Dan so we can have another giveaway?(a match against them in doubles would be really fun):D

Also, Simon and Hugo are both known for their strong backhands. How much time do they spend for backhand training compared to the forehand?

Could you ask them who was their best doubles partner they played with and if they will play doubles together?

Hey KM1966, great question ill ask this. The Freitas review will be out very soon don't worry :) Keep an eye out next week hopefully! :)

Already have this on my list, will do :)

Sure no problem, good question. I once saw Zhang Jike testing around 8 Zhang Jike blades at a Butterfly stand. He was knocking them for the sound :)

Aha absolutely! They won't be ready for your serve Kevin! :D

Ask them if they have been over the design themselves or is it pure marketing?

Also if they have helping choosing the different veneers/plies of their signature blades.

One question that pops up in mind is, how much of their training time is spent in doing body stretches.

Hi Giang, no probs I asked them that. Both Simon and Hugo came up with the concepts for the design :) They both talk about it in the review footage. Should be a good one!


One question that pops up in mind is, how much of their training time is spent in doing body stretches.

Around 1 hour per day it seemed. All the players there spend 1 hour in the morning doing lots of gym based stuff and stretching. It was impressive how professional all the players were considering how young the team is. They have 2 fitness trainers and a physio therapist. Impressive setup!
