Okay. Let's get a list up. It seems the pro mid-users who hit a 2HBH with a mid frame (by which I mean below 95") is tiny now. To show that I'm not completely insane though (by really liking the MG Prestige mid and having a 2-handed BH) and to help inspire me a bit, can others help me get a list of pros who presently or recently had a 2HBH and played with a mid-size frame.

I'll kick it off with two players who recently used a mid... Marat Safin (now retired of course) and Gael Monfils (now plays pro custom. Reb 95)...

Come on then!... who else can we add?:)

TIA,

R.

Soderling using YT Radical MP, even though really prestige. Still count? Comes in at 98" though.

Verdasco seems to be using a frame with a smallish head. I know others say it is a 97 or 98, and they may well know, but it still looks small.

A 93 is still a mid so good call dude. I dobt he would have used a 93, bet its been 90. He did change for a few months to a RQIS tour but changed back

Hewitt is really still using the RDiS 100 Mid.

Yeah, below 95" please (which rules out Del Po, I'm pretty certain.)

Thus far though, a depressingly small list...:( there must be more pros who now or fairly recently were using a 2hbh on their mid frame?

Bellucci using a 90 or a 95?

(And every racquet in Isner's hands looks like a mid.)

I believe he's using the 95.

Someone above listed Gulbis but pt57 is a 95 so he doesn't count.
