I believe i saw an old picture og Ferrer playing with the Wilson HPS 5.1 stretch. Can anyone confirm that he once did play with this racket?

I found a picture of Ferrer with a Wilson HPS 6.1

Before that he was using the Babolat Pure Drive

oh, right! It was the HPS 6.1 i saw him using too, confused it with the 5.1. But i believe that's a stretch version of the 6.1? Ferrer has always played with a longer racket i think.

I have played with stretch version. Stretch HPS has 18x20 string pattern, but on the picture is 16x19. didn't count :)

on the picture it's a 16x18 pattern. But the handle sure looks longer then 27" racket handels. You have to add that he has not covered the whole handle with tourna. You can see it's quite long. I guess that racket is a custom HPS 6.1 with 16x18 pattern and his 27,7" length.
