    Does Oliver Rochus use a POG, or TT graphite? I saw him play Moya and it looks like a TT graphite but it could just be a paintjob. Is his raquet POG 100" longbody? POG 107" standard? The racquet looked really long, so I'm guessing it's longer than 27". Just curous...

    No sure what it's. 16x20 pattern. Looks like a TT graphite mid 95. I used to played with that, it was a great racquet even before I learned to use lead tape. It's looks like a 100+ head or OS, but they usually have 16x18 or 16x19 pattern. I don't think it's longer than 27" though, especially on a one handed back hand for a 5'5" frame.

    Rochus's racquet looks more like a TT graphite OS. Amazing he uses a one handed backhand with that OS. I think its a standard length TT graphite OS. His 5'-5" stature makes his racquet look longer than it really is. ;)

    Since his racquet is a 16x20, can it be a possibility that he is using the Precision Grahite 640, Precision 690(LB version of Prec. Graphite), or the Michael Chang MP(Euro)?

    It's definitely a 16x20, so it could be a TT Graphite Mid or a repainted 640 or 690. Hard to tell from just a picture.

    What's a Chang MP Euro? I've never heard of that.

    It looked quite thick to me, but I don't know all the Prince Rackets that well - maybe a Precision or Graphite II?
