    I was watching her match with Safina and couldn't help but noticing how longer her racquet was. It seemed like it was at least 29 inches! Anyone else notice.

    I think it's just because she has tiny hands.

    Chang used a 28" racquet. It's in his book. He tried different lengths but settled with 28".

    That's true--Chang's racquet was 28". I don't know about Bacsinszky's frame but with regard to 29" frames I do know Marion Bartoli uses one that long.
