I noticed this because I just bought two of these from skraggle. Clearly diablo and I assume its the mid, but I am not the best at identifying. Pretty sure not a pj because he is a qualifier. :)

Don't get too excited. There are guys on the futures circuit using fishing nets.

Yeah, he is playing well. Interesting to me that he is coming to net with some sucess. I thought it was "impossible" to volley with nadal's crazy spin. The true tenets of tennis don't change. If you can come to the net with pressure, you have the advantage.

Midplus? I don't know, the diablo is a rounder frame and makes it look bigger than it is. The midplus is 100 vs the 93 mid and it didn't look like it was big enough to be the plus. Opinions, anybody else? Murray??

It looked like Deheart was using the mid plus version of the Diablo. He would be shanking and mishitting like crazy if he was using the mid version.

^^^Yea that Diablo must be a great racket if it can handle the monster topspin that rafa was throwing down tonight..

Of course!! 100% equipment, not the player!

Every time I shank, I will go up 1 sq inch in my next racquet.
Until my racquet is so big, I can't control my shots... no shanks, no control, no feel... but who cares right?!

Nadal won easily in straight sets though.

I don't know. Racquets, weirdly, always look bigger on TV and when watching someone else, than when just holding them.

I have Diablo mids and they seem fairly small just holding it, but when I see other people use them, they look much bigger.

I'm guessing it's a mid, especially if it's not a custom mold (why would Ryler deHeart have a custom mold?) The Diablo midplus would make a horrible pro frame.

Then again, he could have midplus with a lot of lead. But, I still think it's a mid.

I thought that his racquet looked more like the Diablo Midplus. You could clearly see too that he leaded it up at 3 and 9 with about a 5-6" strip.

Dang it, it looks like he using the mp, since the head is big and the throat is wide.

But I dont get why no pros use the mid. Its a great racquet w/ stability & control with just enough power, spin, and foregiveness.

it was mid... also why do you think that he would be mishitting? mid is not that small, also he would never be able to volley so good with 100sqin...

Please re-type your response here ^^^. You agree it's a midplus but you don't know why some still think it's the midplus?! I think what you meant to say was you don't know why some still think it's the mid.
