    It's in the same general ballpark, but there are quite a few differences, depending on how closely you want to look. Some of the differences include flex/flex pattern (since Roddick is actually using the old Pure Drive +), Cortex (Roddick doesn't use it), and weight distribution. Try searching for some of the threads that will give you actual Roddick specs for further weight/balance detail. Also, Roddick plays with a custom handle not available at retail.

    The question is whether he really uses such a stiff racket, given how
    Hard he hits.
