    Last year there was a debate whether it was the 95D or the 98D. Now I guess it could be the 97T. It looks bigger than an 89, may not be as big as 97, but I can't tell looking at the TV. Does anyone know what he uses now and whether he modifies it?

    What I can see is that he is hitting the ball beautifully. It might not be the racket of course but where he used to be a little one dimensional he can now hit hard, spin the ball, slice, attack and defend with equal ease -- and it does look easy. He has just beaten Rosol without much opposition and some of his shotmaking was really impressive.

    Love Stanley Slaw. Glad he's making full use of his repertoire.

    I heard RPM blast. and it sure looks like RPM blast as well. I think that Yonex racket with extra large sweet spot makes his backhand even better than it already is.
