I mostly browse these boards and don't post much. But these conspiracy theories about racquet paintjobs need to stop. Think about it, if you had the EXACT racquet Federer played the US Open final with, do you even remotely think you could hit the shots he does? Would you be able to go on tour by using his racquets? NO! What difference does it make if hes is using a PS 85, 90, 95, NCode or whatever! His racquet is a custom made stick to his specifications. I have somewhat customized my C-10 Pro Tours to my liking. I could continue to customize then until the end of time and STILL couldn't hit the ball like a tour pro! It's not the racquets, folks, rather the player who is attached to the racquet that makes the difference. Federer, or any other pro for that matter, could beat most of us into submission by using any 50 year old wood racquet that has a decent set of strings in it. They could let us use their "holy grail" racquet while playing against them and they would still not be challenged by at least 99% of the people who post on these boards. It used to be somewhat entertaining to read the posts about paintjobs but there have been no great revelations from this particular thread. Let's move on.
