How would these pros do if they used the following racquets (straight off the shelf with no modifications and strung in the middle of the recommended tension range) at a tournament....

Roger Federer: Gamma Diamond Fiber C-2.0 137 sq in 9.6 oz
Andy Roddick: Wilson PS 6.0 85
Venus Williams: Wilson ncode sixone tour 90
Serena Williams: Yonex RDX-500 mid
Lleyton Hewitt: Prince Shark OS
Andre Agassi: Prince Diablo Mid
Marat Safin: Pure Drive Oversize
Maria Sharapova: Head Liquidmetal Prestige Mid
Jennifer Capriati: Wilson nCode n1

I was thinking about this too!
What if players would swap racquets?
For example: if Agassi would use Federer's racquet and Federer Agassi's, would that make a difference?

federer would still win if thats waht you mean. and agassi's serve return would have some serious issues with it. 17 inches less frame would not be kind to him.

Probably just as high. He once said big servers can serve big with gardening tools. I tend to agree.

2 games? i doubt if it would last 2 points. the frame would deserve wahtever he can do it.

I wonder if Venus and Serena switch to some more players' frames... you think they may could play better? But maybe not that extreme. Maybe something comparable to the MP-2i or Pure Drive.

i dont understand why they need the OS wilsons. serena's frame is huge, and she is a strong girl. it makes no sense for her to be playign with such a frame. someone needs steal her Ncodes and leave her an old school hps 6.1 mp. that'll straighten out her forhand and serve issues. anyone out there planning on going to jail for larsony anyway?
