I think Goran used to use Prestige Midplus XL with CAPs. I have no way to prove it, but I read it here sometime ago. Goran's using a Yonex racquet now, and I know this for a fact because I saw him play on the Delta Tour with this stick. :)

Goran was using Head Prestige Classic 600 XL
Safin is using Head Prestige Classic 600 with LM Prestige mid paint job
Kuerten is using Head Pro Tour 630 with LM Prestige midplus paint job

This has been beaten to death but almost all of Head's players on Tour who are suppose to use Liquidmetal Prestige don't. They use Prestige Classic 600 or Pro Tour 630 with a Liquidmetal Prestige paint job.

Goran has been using of late what could be a Yonex Ultimum RD Ti 80. But I think it could also be a RD-70 Ti long 98 under the paint, but that just my opinion.

Safin, Kuerten and Goran all use a Head Prestige Classic 600 XL. They just have paintjobs.

No Andrew, that is not true. Safin uses a standard length Prestige Classic, and Guga uses a standard length ProTour 630. Over the years believe the length of Goran's frames varied from a standard 27" to 28". However, in his last few years, I think I recall his frames being 27.5"......

guys it is obvious that they all use the lm prestige and goran the i prestige xl. they just make it look like paintjobs so we have things to talk about. come on do you really think head would fool the public to make some extra money?

I remember Goran using the Prestige Classic for a long time after the i.Prestige was introduced. Then a commentator (can't remember which) said that Head convinced him to switch to the i.Prestige because it was more arm friendly and Goran was having big shoulder problems at that time. And I think it was during the Wimbledon he ended up winning.

Now I think Goran's using a FlexPoint, according to the photos of him playing at Queens.

yeah that sounds right, i also remember goran was switching between 288 inch long frames, and 27.5's for a long time. safins is definantly using the prestige classis 600, standard leanth, along with most of the pro tour, and guga uses the pt630 or 280, i thought it was the latter, but im not sure.
