Why call the ultimate racquet the "Holy Grail" when "Excalibur" is a better analogy for a racquet? Seems to me a tournament trophy could be a holy grail. Isn't the sword Excalibur just as unattainable as the Holy Grail?

Interesting
I think that the excalibur is the best racquet for you and the holy grail is your favorite to use. They are basically interchangeable.

The Holy Grail is an ultimate, probably illusory object of desire sought by many.

Excalibur is an object known to all that only one person can rightfully wield.

Dude, excalibur was pulled out of the rock a long time ago. I left it with the Lady of the Lake for safe keeping. After we broke up I heard the b**** pawned it.

True, but I rather go to war with a sword than a cup :)

Good think we don't call the ultimate racquet the Ark Of The Covenant. ;-)

I'd prefer Gungnir instead

Well Excalibur was always there, just sticking out of a rock, but the Holy Grail was far away and required a lot of man-hours and knight-days to find it.

Not with a 130 mph forehand aimed straight at your nuts :-)

So like Sampras to the PS 85?

in truth, the holy grail isn't a grail, but a person. and excalibur is a sword. why can't we just call the ultimate racquet......."the ultimate racquet?" because it is not a grail or a sword in any shape or form :D

Pretty much what I was thinking, but (for once) was trying to be brief. The St Pete or that 300lb piece of rebar in the shape of a tennis racket that Lendl used.

Yea, thats excalibur. Not even Fed could use it for very long. That racquet brutally hurt my game.
