Thanks for the pic links. Looks like he picked up Laver's racquet and hit a few ?? Was this televised ?
Thats correct, it was Rods Dunlop Maxply, see this picture:
That second photo is great.
Something else that I notice, Sampras doesn't appear to be that much taller than Laver. Laver really wasn't as smallish as some would like to suggest.
Sampras used to use the Wilson Jack Kramer Pro Staff and wanted his PS85s to come close.....
Yeah, I think a lot of the listed heights of players are nonsense. Agassi is shorter than 5'11, Chang is shorter than 5'9. I recall Fred Stolle laugh when he saw Chang listed at 5'9", saying 'I know Rod Laver is 5'9" & Chang is defintely shorter than him."
I've seen Laver stand next to Agassi & noticed no difference in height. Maybe Sampras is fudging too?
