This is getting ridiculous...
This has already been posted like a million of times.
YOU ARE NOT SMARTER THAN FEDERER! HE WON 12 SLAMS WITH THE SAME RACQUET!!!
Fall in his game DOESN'T MEAN that he should change his gear!
He has GAME not EQUIPMENT problems!
What do you think it's going on?
-Over the last 8 months every single tennis player that uses a >90 sticks were granted by god with 500% game improvement?
-Federer is out of shape?
Think a li'l bit about this, and for God's sake USE THE SEARCH BUTTON.

Cheers:)

The writer of that article has no idea what he's talking about. He thinks there is a linear relationship between racquet head size and tennis match results. If his logic was true, all pros would be using as large of a racquet as the rules would allow.

When did you come up with this amazing new idea???

I'm going to call Rog right now, and let him know. He has been looking at new ideas to change his game, and had not once though about this.

Thanks for the heads up.

Federer's only hope of surpassing Sampras's open era record of 14 grand slams is by switching to a 95 square inch racquet.

Usually that's the case. But in federer's case, he changes his racquet coinciding with the opponent's service game.

Joke-a-vich, of course, I was being sarcastic. What other alternatives are there ?

AS a golf pro once told me you should only change your equipment when youre playing well so you can see the additional benefit of new equipment. Roger is doing fine and I am sure head size isnt the problem for one of the all time greats!

Not knocking the big man but seems the youngsters are patient like Nalbandian in his day and packing much Kryptonite. They're not just tugging on Superman's cape but look ready to bury the legend. To be the Man you must beat the Man and they be beating him now.

80milionth post about this

So 90 is obsolete? how did Djokovic win the Masters Cup in Shanghai with a 93inch racquet?

People who dont know how to play seriously shouldnt be criticing the worlds best EVER.
If you cant tell the huge amount of control you can gain by going down to a 90 ish inch head you really dont know what you are doing.
Play with an aero pro cortex and then play with any 90 racquet, kblade tour, nsix-one.... and you will see the gigantic difference in control...:mad:

Eh, Ranchdressing. Might be worthwhile to note that Djokovic didn't win the Masters Cup with a 93...he is only advertising the 93 KBlade, his mold is actually a 98.

I love how this topic keeps coming up though. Federer does alot better with his 90 sq inch than all the Prestige Mid users at the moment. Safin, Calleri, Acasuso, and formerly Monfils.

Also on another note. I think it's worthwhile to note that while Fed may use a 90 sq in. In my opinion the 90 sq in K90, N90, SuperKarmaSecretCocoPuffProSpec88 sq in...in general the Wilson mids have a high stiffness rating and I find them to be notably more powerful and forgiving than say a Prestige 98 racket.

Racquets that are 90 sq. inches are not obsolete. Djokovic uses a 93 sq. in racquet, and yet he won the AO and the masters cup at Shanghai.
When you win 13 grand slams, you can tell Federer to change his racquet.

So many mishits that he has made it to what 3 straight FO Finals only losing to "possibly" the greatest clay courter in history. I don't think 3 sq inches will get him over Rafa....just playing better at the right moments of those matches will.

not true... OMG i can't believe you people you would trust to anyone, if i say that we live on the Moon now you would trust me...

BTW Federer better retire, than change racquet.... if that's the only thing that bothers him right now...

fed can do whatever the hell he wants lol.. you guys honestly thinks he gives a crap about what anybody says on a stupid message board? I would like to think the people he has around him in his life, and he himself know what the best thing for his tennis game is. Dumping Mirka would be a good idea though

I'd like for you to take a k 90 and a k 95 (or any 90 and 95 rackets) hold them up against eachother and tell me how big of a difference you see. There might be a difference in feel between two rackets, but as far as pure head size goes there is very little difference.
