    given sampras's style of flat ground strokes, ever wonder how sampras would have done if he used a PC600?

    some things to consider:

    -pc600 is slightly bigger in head size, which might have helped sampras at the french

    -dense string pattern of the pc600, for his flat strokes

    Hmm... this actually is a really interesting idea. This is what I can think of so far:

    Pros

    -Denser pattern gives even more precision to all of his shots, including serve (maybe a slightly enhanced or different feel, as well)
    -maybe 4 inches would make a difference (though I wonder how... the shape of the racquet head maybe)
    -Better tension maintenance for his nat gut

    Cons

    -Less natural spin from denser pattern
    -A little less pop (or BOOM, in his case)
    -Different feel overall
    -Not a PS85 (not saying that it is better, just much different)
