    One to hit the balls back with, or ... that would do it for me!

    At the baseline...
    One with rear mirror to see Federer's face while I'm picking the balls behind the fence. ;)

    I'd probably use a pretty heavy racquet to be able to block back some of those powerful shots...any of the players racquets with lots of lead.

    Big Bubba, at the speed they're hitting serves, gives me a greater chance to actually touch one and hope to push it over the net with a powerful racquet.

    Why wouldn't you use your current racquet since you are most comfortable with it? I don't get the point of your question.

    This is kinda an interesting question.
    I agree with DSL on the heaviness, that is why most pros rackets are heavy, for the reason he said. I would use my racket with a lot of lead tape.

    Yep, it's obviously the frame I use now. If I ever did get a chance to hit against a real top level pro, that would not be the right time to go looking for a new stick.

    Probably just the racquet I use now. However, I don't think it might matter, I probably won't even get a racquet on their returns, haha. Besides, if I changed my racquet just to play someone, it signals that I'm not confident about my game.

    I'd play with my own racquet, get thoroughly owned by the pace and spin. Then if I get a rematch I would experiment with another racquet (probably heavier) just to see.

    one that can cover the whole net and 20m high to prevent lobs.
