OK, who on this board is willing to pony up to settle this argument once and for all on what racquet Federer is really using? How about one of the guys claiming he's still using a PS 6.0 85?

Must not be an actual picture of the rac. then since Federer's rac. doesn't have the useless, ******** elongated grip.

It is not obvious from that picture. But I think it is original one from Fed (and it is to big for a 85inch2 head...). The price is pretty high now (CHF 3000.-)

Seller with 0 feedback and he won't even show pics of the actual racquet. Good luck! :D

I think it is from the official swiss olympic association (i think they don't often sell on ****)....

Yeah, I'm kinda skeptical of the racquet on ****. Curious which newspaper mentioned it though.

However, I would assume that if he was donating it to charity, someone might mention it on his site, but I couldn't find anything on it there...

3,182 Swiss Francs (current bid) = US$2,545... Interesting that I don't see anything about it being sold for charity.

Upon closer inspection, I did find a reference to Sporthilfe which is a legitimate charity organization, guaranteeing delivery, etc. Could be legit.

It is a legitimate charity organization which in this case was formed
for raising funds for the swiss olympic cause, hence 0 feedback
( first time for Athens olympic since existence of ****.. ).
As you can see from the list, all swiss athletes with any name have
donated something worth auctioning.
As Federer said in the newspaper article, he would not be where he is
without the help of the swiss sports federation ( SchweizerSporthilfe)
This is the reason why they all donate, they have all been recipients of help one way or another on the way to the top. You can see
all items donated here.

Now all you have to do is put the money where the mouth is
and all the arguments about what racquet he is using are finished
as you can try it for yourself.

TW - it would be a great service to your customers if you could buy this racket - you could settle all our questions once and for all!

Even better, you could sell customized nCodes or tour 90's guaranteed to be "customized as close to Federer's racket as possible".
