    You cannot be more correct my friend.

    By the way which racket was Saina Nehwal using against R.I. during their Uber Cup meet?

    Looks very much like Nanoray 900.

    Jap women double M.Naito is using the same racket.
    Today replay shows close similarity to N900 :)

    It's the Nanoray 900. Sania previously was using 700RP - the 900 would be a "natural progression" for her.

    Yes, Nanoray 900 is more likely than the other two i have mentioned.

    LD is using Yonex Voltric Z-Force II

    LD is definitely using Yonex Voltric Z-Force II

    Here are some pics from the Thomas Cup:

    It does look like the Yonex Z series based on the stringing pattern: 12 mains in the center before the 1st top cross. Not the normal 76 hole pattern. However, he was using a 72 hole racket earlier this year.

    He's just trying out all the existing technology before he makes his own brand of rackets :rolleyes:

    Wait wait.... WHAT? This can't be right.... Rs 20450 is RM 1122.45 in Malaysia. Even N90III isn't THAT EXPENSIVE......

    I'm sure that LD racquet isn't a Z-Force II, grommets are different.
    Look that t-shirt and think:

    too many coincidences:
    shoes (no doubt, are quickforce 7)
    shirt
    photo with Messi few months ago...
    It may be coincidence, but there are several coincidences.

    OK, is Ahsan using the FB now against the Malaysia pair? Thought he will be using the 900 by now?

    So far the only solid evidence is the Adidas shoes and the two different rackets.

    It surprised me too.

    Still thinking that shirt is more than a coincidence, sponsors control those aspects
