    In 2002 he used a racket painted like a HPS 6.0 . It is definitely not the same racket he used in 2003 and later and the headzise looks larger than 85 as well.[​IMG]

    its not a 90 inch head, its definately a 95. we know that he wanted bigger than the 85 he was used to so he went to a 95. maybe he found that to suck and then switched to his custom 90. so i guess since he was experimenting, it could've been the hps 6.0, or maybe just plain 6.0 95? but then, it could be a pj.

    In all likely hood it is the PS 95 or the classic 95, with lead.

    First, he used a HPS 6.0 95 Tour red/black/yellow paintjob on a PS 6.0 85 (since he was still transitioning from it). Then later that year, after Wilson developed the PS Tour 90, he used the same HPS 6.0 95 Tour red/black/yellow paintjob but now over a PS Tour 90. Once the PS Tour 90 was released to the public in the spring of '03, he dropped the HPS 6.0 95 paintjob and began using the regular PS Tour 90 black paintjob.

    This has been discussed before, with pics and everything. If you do a search, you may be able to find it.

    Did he ever use a 6.0 95? Then I could say that I used the same racquet as Fed...

    No, he did not. And neither did Sampras (just in case the rumours start flying about him, too). ;)

    than isn't possible that fed uses a tour 90 now. I mean he supposedly uses a 90 headsize.
