just watching rafa vs. nole, and i thought djokovic's racquet head looks way bigger than it normally does. does anyone else think so?

Don't give the paintjob conspirators a chance to pontificate.

Djokovic uses a mid plus. If he used a mid size racquet he probably wouldn't be in the top 10 because his two handed backhand would have been a liability.

Mids are from the Triassic period.

Marat Safin anyone?

EDIT: That actually made it sound like I was agreeing with the quoted poster. This ("Marat Safin anyone?") is sarcasm. Thank you.

same here,I spot it right away.. it looks like at a 98 maybe a 104 and painted to be a pro-blade.. one of the pro I saw praciticing at Carson was using a proto-type or a painted over to look like the blade but it had more of a rounded off profile instead of a squared off box type frame... and it was also bigger ...

What about Safin's backhand?

I watched this match, and oddly Djoker's racquet "looked" about the same size as Nadal's--maybe a tiny bit bigger.

Certainly didn't look like 93 sq. in. Maybe black racquets look bigger on television.?

Djo use to use Head Radical MP, which is a 95", so I'd guess its the same.

u should say black rackets look smaller on tv.
this is probably the reason wilson made it black, so it can disguise the fact.

last time wilson advertised Djok used nBlade 98. then suddenly Wilson is selling KBlade 93 and DJok also changed to 93.

how ridiculous can this go.

quest01, just because you're not good with a mid doesn't mean others should get rid of them. jo11y has a 2 hander and plays just fine with it.

any more offhand putdowns?

i smoke lots of people with a mid, and the best players in my area use mids. so no, it's not a fossil.
