This racket was received from Gustavo "Guga" Kuerten at 2002 "A Night at the Net" Celebrity tennis match at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. This amazing I.Prestige Head racket was match used and signed by Kuerten, and displays all of his customizations. The stringbed has his customary stencils of both the Head and Luxilon logos. Kuerten was one of the first tennis players to use the polyester Luxilon strings, taking the tennis world by storm. The new strings allowed him to swing with maximum power, but with so much spin that he had tremendous control. Like Sampras' racket, Kuerten's has the iconic purple Tourna grip, which he has autographed.

Guga is recognized as one of the most humble and beloved tennis players in history. He won 20 ATP titles including 3 French Open singles titles in 1997, 2000, and 2001. This was a gift to a celebrity Kuerten fan.
