    He'd probably be packing more net skills and touch game. xP ;)

    i think he should have a 120 sq in frame since bigger frame= way more power :). so his serve will be like 160 mph.

    But why stop there? Why not use a 150 sq. in. racquet so that he can serve 200mph? :shock: ;) LOL

    To the OP, very clever thread!

    This "so and so" needs a bigger racquet talk always makes me laugh.

    You are on top of your game for this 90 sq. in. thread. Kudos! Very funny.

    If Roddick switched to a 90 square inch racquet he would be outside the top 50 in no time. Roddick has a funky looking forehand, he he used his forehand with a mid size racquet he would be shanking every other shot.

    I think he shanked one long on match point, so i really doubt a smaller headsize would help!

    This was clever when Breakpoint did it like 2 years ago. Now? Not at all.

    Dude with a 150 square in headsize with the lightness of an oversize frame... imagine how fast he'd be able to whip that thing in the air... definately 200 mph... he should also string his racquet at 40lbs just for the added power. the headsize would also help with his volleys.

    genius thread!

    fail. He would epically fail. Roddick needs a big beefy frame with a big head and open strings so he can whip it around and get lots of spin and stuff. 90 inches is fun to hit around with, like the kstaff 88, but not for matches. Noooo nooo...unless you're playing someone like, half your level.
