    I believe i saw an old picture og Ferrer playing with the Wilson HPS 5.1 stretch. Can anyone confirm that he once did play with this racket?

    Before that he was using the Babolat Pure Drive

    oh, right! It was the HPS 6.1 i saw him using too, confused it with the 5.1. But i believe that's a stretch version of the 6.1? Ferrer has always played with a longer racket i think.

    on the picture it's a 16x18 pattern. But the handle sure looks longer then 27" racket handels. You have to add that he has not covered the whole handle with tourna. You can see it's quite long. I guess that racket is a custom HPS 6.1 with 16x18 pattern and his 27,7" length.
