View Full Version : What grip size does Andy Roddick use???

06-21-2005, 07:11 AM
I see pictures of him and his hands look like they wrap all the way around the racquet. Plus he looks like he uses overwrap. I tried the 3/8 with overwap and it seems bigger than my wilson 3/8 with the same overwrap. Are there any guys out there who use the PD in a 1/4" grip?

I read that he uses L4.

babolat grips do feel a bit larger than wilson grips in a similar size, maybe about 1/2 a grip size up. i believe andy uses L4, 4 1/2 grip w/ tournagrip overgrip. nadal uses 4 1/4 grip on his aero pro drive.

I think he uses a 4 1/2 with a over grip.

It's a custom mold. Feels a little bigger than the stock Babolat #4.

I read that he uses L4.

After calling RPNY, I was told that Andy uses a grip size between L4 and L5--approximately 4 and 9/16. Sorry, but I don't know if that's with or without the overgrip. Also, as david aames said, the handle is custom molded. Keep in mind that Babolat grips, while similar in shape to Wilson, seem to be a touch larger. I don't know why.

If that is the case, Roddick must have huge hands. The owner of the pro shop I go to uses a 3/8 with overwrap, and he is 6'3. I am only 5' 8" and my hands are smaller I went with a 3/8" on my wilson, and 1/4 on PD. the wilson is just a bit bigger with the overwrap , but not uncomfortable. Still don't know what to look for as far as sizing goes.

I don't know about Serena, but Venus uses an L5 plus an overgrip. Serena's grip looks thick on TV, but what the heck does that mean?
