    yes. babolat's blue grips are a different color.

    Roddick uses Tournagrip XXL...which is much, much longer than regular Tournagrip.

    On Unique's website (they are the manufacturers of Tournagrip), Safina is listed as an endorser.

    XL is 20% longer, but XXL is 40% longer than regular Tournagrip. Although actually it's just wider.

    It's designed for people with very long handles or very big grips... ie John Isner (who is a huge dude) or Roddick (who winds it way up the handle).

    There's no reason to buy XXL unless you like to wrap the grip way past the handle, OR you have a #5 or bigger AND like to wrap it past the handle.

    It costs a lot more, especially since 30 packs are $54 dollars since only Unique sells them.
