    it says on his profile he uses a 98 sq. inch head but on tv it looks like he uses an oversize.

    Serena is actually a size 0 in real life, the camera angles just make her thighs ginormous.

    I thought this too, but if you were to take the MP and put it up against an OS. The MP will fit into the stringbed of the OS with only the OS' frame left showing. So they are pretty close in size and not having anything to compare it to on TV only makes it harder.

    No way. He wouldn't be able to play at that high of level with an oversize.

    That must be why Federer has his string tension so low - his matches are always televised.

    Haha, I like it!

    Back to the original question, i'm pretty sure it's the MP.

    it is pretty sure a mp. i play the os, which is not sooo very much bigger (106 vs. 98 = +8), but the most easy to identify feature is the shape of the head - while the 98 is a bit more oval, the 106 is rounder, besides the fact that the os has a 18x19 stringbed, while the mp has a 18x20 stringbed.

    What a comeback, Voltron. The ignorance on these boards can sometimes be appalling.
