Just saw the picture on the ATP site of Querrey and Isner beating Rog and Yves, and the racket that Isner is using does not look like the Prince racket that he is suppose to be using. Anyone have any ideas what the racket is?

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Looks like a Bosworth.

I feel like it's an optical illusion. the O3 white has little white patches around the 11 and 1 areas and I think at that angle, they might be making the racquet head look weirdly shaped.

just my opinion. the throat of it doesn't look like a Prince racquet's shape, though...

The patches are the Triple Threat weighting system. It still is an O3 White:

I would tend to agree with you.

Like he needs the extra length :)

Yes he does. When you're that tall, low balls are much harder to reach, a longer racket makes that problem a little bit easier...

Hmm, I didn't think of that. Makes sense then. And I suppose he does need extra handle length for his hands on the backhand side

I'm sure that certainly helps, the man has to have HUGE hands...

I guess it makes him more proned to getting jammed. ~~~>
