    Or does Roger Federer appear to be playing Wimbledon with a racquet whose head size appears larger than 90sq. in? Could he possibly be playing with the HPS6.1 (using the nCode paint job)?

    Matt, I thought the same as you yesterday when watched his match. Looks like a 95 sq. in. head size.

    I heard that at the FO he was using a larger head as he wanted to counter act the wind, and maybe at Wimbly he feels that he needs more forgiveness on his groundies as he has less time on the ball.

    Or the most likely solution is that he has had so much paint on his racket that it gives the appearance of a bigger head!?

    Geez, if Federer actually was switching racquets to counter the wind....well he's truly a moron.

    And if you guys can tell the difference between 90 and 95 sq inches on TV....well let's just say that would be truly unbelievable!
