    wether it is the same stick, blah blah blah PS6.0 85, tour 90 the new Ncode 6.1 you be the judge, one thing for sure the racquet set up he used did affect him, ANY CHANGE AS MINUTE AS IT CAN BE IS NOT A GOOD THING FOR PLAYERS AT THIS LEVEL.

    I am not so sure he was blaming his racket. Maybe blaming himself. I would think professional like him would brought a "safety" backup stick and will not let a new racket be the reason for a loss.

    Anyway Wilson still has the Williams sisters around.

    Seems to me like he was more looking for the right tension in the strings.... not a particular racquet... that would make no sense.

    Prolly has a couple strung up differently..

    Doesnt matter now anyway.. heh.

    I'm sure it wasn't the racket, if he had any concern at all with the racket in the previous rounds, there is no way he would have played with it, by the way, it is a great racket, just got one

    Danty would you mind give us some feedback of the ncode racket you just received? I am sure many are anxious to hear. Thanks.

    Is it a big surprise that Federer got beat by a 3-time French Open champion? It had nothing to do with Fed's racquet, and everything to do with Guga out-playing him.

    Federer did about as well this year as he ever has. One of the commentators said yesterday that Federer likes to hit his shots, especially his backhand, from his knees to his waist (or something like that). He felt like clay, with the high bounces would be hard on Federer, and that Kuerten, if he was moving ok, would be favored. He may have been looking for a good string tension though, because of the dryer conditions.

    It's hard to accept this statement without seeing the match firsthand (thanks network scumbags). Former is not equal to current. Was Federer "off" or was Guga just "on" and who really knows other than the spectators or those in areas that actually got coverage.

    Did Guga's backhand breakdown Federer's(Self proclaimed, greatest one hander on tour :roll:) backhand?

    I watched the match live. It was just one of those days for Federer. Guga was on fire, and Federer barely hit anything past the service line, and was generally very poor.

    no matter his opponent is on or off. there is no surprise that Guga beat anyone on claycourt. He is the best claycourt player!!

    Guga played a nice match, but federer hit a lot of shots into the net or out that I would have expected him to place better. He was playing very un-federer like. Whether that was the weather or the racquet, only fed knows.
