we squinted, and we saw some funky stencil jobs

by

These were neither Chanel logos nor portraits of Andre Agassi, but still we were intrigued…

Tommy Haas played with a barebones Dunlop stencil on his racquet at the Stockholm Open last month (right), and used a proper stencil at the Paris Masters Series the week after.

Meanwhile, The Legends Rock Dubai had some fun ones, too: Jim Courier rocked the Stanford Financial logo (an silhouette of a crest) on his racquet. Stanford sponsors the rankings on Courier’s Outback Champions senior tour.

And winner Paul Haarhuis played with a… smiley face?

    How did you find out about the Stanford Financial logo?!

    There are times in this world when the blogger need not credit their sources :)

    So, Jim Courier showed up at Legends Rock Dubai, gave his stringers a copy of Standford Financial annual report, and said, will you put this crest with imperial eagle on my strings? Is that what your source told you? I think not, so then where did you find this? No credits, but at least give your information source!!

    TRW

    does anyone know how to stencil their own rackets … what kind of paint is used, etc. i’d like to put a big “Lleyton = God” on mine.

    Interesting. But are you sure that “Lleyton=God” will fit in your Yonex? Or will it turn out as “Lleyton=Go”, or “Lleyton=G”…

    Another option would be to put his face or silhouette on your strings. There’s an example with Agassi somewhere on TSF.
