It's just an effect of the lens. If you pause it around 0:25 when Rafa's arm is near to the camera, his wrist looks thicker than his head.

He's definitely moved up to 110 sq inches.

I think it's called foreshortening.

Wow. That was bad. I'm pretty sure that I've never whiffed that bad at a shot. How could this happen to someone like Fed...

Apparently his frame isn't big enough since he whiffed on match point against rafa.

None of you have ever heard of a bad bounce? Seriously. This guys hit millions of tennis balls on every single surface, he's not gonna whiff on a regular bounce.. it was pretty obviously a bad bounce..

http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/blog/busted_racquet/post/Video-Roger-Federer-whiffs-on-match-point-again?urn=ten,241312Yes. Fed has switched to a Wilson 135 sq. in. custom racquet. (It's called the "Big Raja".) He is doing whatever it takes to beat Rafa.

Bad bounce? Hah! Even the "whiffing" on match point is to lull Rafa into a false sense of superiority.
