    Cipolla is on TV right now playing B. Reynolds. His frame is definitely Wilson and it does look like it could be a Wilson Steam (red color on bottom of hoop and blackish on top half of hoop). Unusual racquet for a pro, if true.

    Sure looks like a 6.1 to me. Regardless of the model (HyperCarbon, NCode, KFactor, others) if it's a 16x18, the pattern is fairly open near the top of the stringbed. It's not a Steam, but it's understandable that you could think so. The SpinEffect Steams are so different from what many pros grew up with and have played most of their careers with for many, if any, to switch. Just my observation, though.

    Judging by his size it must be a Wilson Jr.'s racket...
