    Why do pros like Safin and Roddick use regular short Tourna Grip?

    1. Safin needs to cover up the black sleeve of Prestige Classic. Tourna GRip XL would do that for him

    2. For some reason, Roddick puts his grip up really high. I don't see how regular, not XL tournagrip would fit that high

    Does any one know why they use regular and not XL tournagrip?

    How do you know they use regular TG?
    XL is just wider so it covers more.

    No, if you take regular and Xl, it is longer and wider. Plus, it says on TW.com

    Original TG is 98 cm x 25 mm,
    XL TG is 100 cm x 29 mm,
    So XL is about 2% longer and 16% wider.

    I've seen some pros, using two standard TG grips. They just overlap them.

    Now I am a tennis fanatic but this thread is over the top.

    I wonder why some of the pros wear headbands instead of hats...

    Zorg, you take the cake!!
