    She never used 95. Graf used the 85 the whole time with Wilson.

    Graf - 22 Slams
    Federer - 17 Slams
    Sampras - 14 Slams

    All done with 84 sq. in. to 90 sq. in. racquets. :)

    But to be fair they PS 6.0 slam winners were played in an era very different from now. There is no one using the 85 in top level since 2002, and other than Fed no one with a 90 at top level since 2010?

    IIRC Safin is the only guy who can play a power game with a mid?

    True, but I guess I was just counting guys with double digit slam counts using midsize graphite racquets. Or else we could also include Lendl (8 ), Wilander (7), Becker (6), McEnroe (3 w/graphite), Safin (2), Hewitt (2), Ivanisevic (1), Krajicek (1), Stich (1), Gomez (1), Cash (1).

    As long as we're going to single digits...can't recall what model he used ( other than being Rossignol; R40? Kriek model? too early for F100 or F250 ), but Kriek won the Aussie Open twice ( '81, '82 ). Not sure if they were mids or standard, or graphite or fiberglass composites. I'm thinking standard sized composites.
