i was looking at the pics in the pacific life open thread, and andy roddicks grips look massive!. it might be an optical illusion created by the angle the pic was taken at, but it looks as if, with a backhand grip, he;d still have 1/2 and inch till the throat of the racquet. ne one know?

Nope, not that big at all...Looks long because of how high he wraps his overwrap.

That overgrip job on hhis frames looks spastic. Hire me Andy, you'll get better quality. Hell, I'll even drive the bus and take care of your leftover girlfriends.

Here's a couple of Roddick's personal frames on ****. I think they might even be authentic :)

I don't know if they are legit but they look the part, even have lead tape in the right spots. I believe the seller doesn't know tennis, when's the last time you heard someone use the term "catgut" ? String looks like Andy's blue hybrid anyway. 2 frames for $250? If you play with this frame that's a good deal anyway.
