    Interesting and unmistakeably true... but what I think is more interesting are the other parts of the gallery, such as the giant nCode and the giant head racquet.. Also, I wouldnt mind getting my hands on some of Roddick's PD's

    The 2 Hundreds are Thomas Johansson's, and I'd hazard a guess of Elena Bovina for the 0-3s, since she's been using them as well lately.

    The 28" Head racquet doesn't seem to work for him, as he's not winning any matches

    Could be corias too,since he use a white overgrip..
    With the Fischer i would say zvonareva;)

    But Thomas,
    i dont understand why theres no longer head racket on their page,so it only comes in stdrt length?
    When its so,ferreros and Schüttlers Rackets are special longer versions!?

    Well isn't that a coincidence? Roddick and I both lay out our racquets before a match in a similar fashion. Just joking, maybe when I win the lottery I'll have the gumption do that for every match. Great pics.

    Er, Rainer plays a standard length frame. Head makes them special for Juan Carlos at 28". As for them not being Coria's, Coria plays a 28" frame like Juan Carlos does, Bovina, plays 27". The Fischer wasn't Vera's, not sure who's it was. Someone who likes to have a knob on the bottom of the butt, and uses a gold coloured poly as well.

    On Juan Carlos' racquets we can also see that he isn't using the Head's grip shape (rectangular), it looks like the prince grip shape, which he is used to :)

    If Thomas Martinez could confirm ?

    Are you sure about Rainer??
    There was an german interview where he talked about his new stick,and it was definetly a longer flexpoint,and he explained why he switched from the prestige classic to the flexpoint! the most reason for him was the length too!

    I would say the fisher was one of the coaches I saw alot of them using fishers.

    Maybe he did go longer, but at the US Open when I last did his racquets, they were standard length frames. I'll be honest, I've not had his new one up close so I really cannot say. I would guess he stayed at 27", but hey, anything is possible in the world of pro tennis.
