    Okay. Let's get a list up. It seems the pro mid-users who hit a 2HBH with a mid frame (by which I mean below 95") is tiny now. To show that I'm not completely insane though (by really liking the MG Prestige mid and having a 2-handed BH) and to help inspire me a bit, can others help me get a list of pros who presently or recently had a 2HBH and played with a mid-size frame.

    I'll kick it off with two players who recently used a mid... Marat Safin (now retired of course) and Gael Monfils (now plays pro custom. Reb 95)...

    Come on then!... who else can we add?:)

    TIA,

    R.

    Verdasco seems to be using a frame with a smallish head. I know others say it is a 97 or 98, and they may well know, but it still looks small.

    A 93 is still a mid so good call dude. I dobt he would have used a 93, bet its been 90. He did change for a few months to a RQIS tour but changed back

    Yeah, below 95" please (which rules out Del Po, I'm pretty certain.)

    Thus far though, a depressingly small list...:( there must be more pros who now or fairly recently were using a 2hbh on their mid frame?

    Bellucci using a 90 or a 95?

    (And every racquet in Isner's hands looks like a mid.)

    I believe he's using the 95.

    Someone above listed Gulbis but pt57 is a 95 so he doesn't count.
