Nice try, freshman. Already mentioned...

The list is endless, I figure it would even be more endless if we were asked to name all the two-handers

spinbalz,
But you are proving my point. The list is essentially endless.

Not so endless if we talk only about current pro players who have (or had) a good enough ATP ranking to deserve a mention, for exemple players are or have been top 100.

Probably safe to assume they didn't use Babolat Pure Drives growing up.

True. But then again, you'd have to be pretty young to have used a Babolat growing up. ha hehe
I can't stand the PD, but I feel most of their stuff is well-designed. I wish they made a Pure Control (so solid) with a slightly smaller, more maneuverable head. I guess that would be a Dunlop Mfil 2hundred or a Volkl Tour 10.

Man, it was not very long ago that the Babolat name was synonymous with natural gut. VS logo -- that's it. Maybe a couple of subtle little stripes at the bottom of the stringbed. Now, frames, shoes, apparel and molto accessories.....dominating the junior and college ranks.

A bit of irony in last week's AUS/ARG Davis Cup tie: I could not help but notice that both doubles teams were righty-lefty combinations....and the doubles match featured a thin Yonex and a Babolat Drive series taking on another thin Yonex and a different Babolat Drive series frame. Funny thing is, the two Yonex guys had 2-handed BH's and the two Babolat guys had one-handed BH's. He played poorly that day, but Wayne Arthurs sure is a good volleyer with that thing.

Then I thought of Alex Corretja, who had a really solid one-hander and used a Babolat PD in the latter stages of his pro career.

Exceptions abound.

Sometimes I feel people place too much emphasis upon equipment. OF course it's important, but would a switch to a headlight, thin beamer really make a kid like Roddick volley better? Or would better technique and repetition under pressure be the key? Talk about good technique [and being raised with it]: I think Arthurs would volley well with a Big Bubba! Or a Big Bertha for that matter.

I believe it's mostly the player, not the frame. I guess the professionals make the best choices they can so they can play to their strengths, not necessarily improve upon their weaknesses.

Sorry, I suppose this belongs more in the Pro Rkts.Gear section of the forum.
All the best, gang.
