88 is a 90 really, if you're talking about the KPS.
It's not his fault he's shanking more as he gets older, HE'S SHRINKING in his old age.
C'mon guys, have a heart for one of the elder statesmen of our beloved sport.
Who probably should give it away while he's at the top ( or at least top what is he now, top 6?)
Poor old bugger!
RF's 2014 paintjob, yet to be seen if he has a 98".
Note the photo has RF in his Wimbledon 2013 outfit Saw this from federerfan07
^^^ It looks so cheap, kinda looks fake like one you'd pick up at Big K.
federer will be using tecnifiber racquet next week @ shanghai. wow!
WOW WOW WOW...so FUGLY!!!!! Please tell me it is fake and restore my faith in Willy!
The real deal. They look awesome in person.
Doesn't he have a lifetime deal with Wilson?
check your meter.
^^^Thanks, Wilson should leave the pinstripes alone they only look good on an MLB jersey.
Although Federer has a lifetime contract with Wilson, he is using a Tecnifibre racquet at the Shanghai Masters tournament?
I'll have to measure it then I suppose and see to it if indeed it is. Unlike the 93 prestige, I've done the measurements.
Miss Sixty are very nice fitting! Nevermind the croc and the melon.
There was another user who measured the headsizes of several mids, including the PS85, the KPS88, the Tour 90 and the Prestige, and posted the results on this forum.
Looks like Fed is staying with the PS90.
Mahut found success with Fed's big racquet!
Really? What's he won with it?
How do you even know that's the same racquet? It doesn't look like it. Besides, if there was a paintjob of it available, why would Wilson give him a blacked-out frame?
No PWS, same string pattern. Most likely it is the same racket.
Didnt Mahut previously us some 95 with PWS racket? So this is a change for him.
Mahut has been using a frame that looks like a Blade mold without PWS for a long time.
Here he is over 5 years ago with the K-Factor Six-One 95 paintjob on the Blade mold with no PWS:
And here he is with the BLX 6.1 95 paintjob on the Blade mold with no PWS after that Wimbledon epic against Isner over 3 years ago:
Here is another picture of Nicolas Mahut's racket:
I know that the side-arms are loose; I did not string this racket but instead placed it on my machine as it was of interest to me.
It appears to be very similar to Ernests Gulbis's racket:
Hope this can be of help,
Not only very similar but the same ;-)
H22 16x19 it is.
Interesting locations for knots in Mahuts racquet?
To string this racket you got to start from the top and with 16 main you end also on the top.
On the mains seems is natural gut, and you do not want to know a mono on natural gut.
My mistake, thanks for the confirmation.
Wondering what's the beam width? 19-20mm? or like the retails 21-22mm?
Thanks in advance
I know that mains end at hoop in this racquet.
What I am wondering is the distance last mains to the knots. Also last cross is tied off very far. Are the strings being looped or why?
