    Leaded up PDR+. When switching to it his amount of applied decreased. Why make such a change if the racquet was exactly the same.

    There's a pic of Roddick with his racquet on another topic in this section...the racquet in the first pic looks too thin like the Pure Drive Team..not as rounded or thick like a PDR.

    Well I heard he uses a PD+ forged in the fires of MT. Doom, and when you put it in fire, it glows and you can see writing on it that says "Babolat"(what ever that means)

    his racquet looks like it's 30 inches long....i saw a close-up of him hitting a backhand and there was handle space on the top and bottom of his two-handed grip haha.....that's where he gets all the serve power from i'm sure

    it is evident if you look close enough that he doesnt use as much lead tape now to when he had the pure drive team.

    so maybe he is using a pdr.. without the cortex.. remember the two rackets are not the same weight.. excluding the cortex :S

    Haha, I was a bit disappointed in A-Rod during Wimbledon, I actually thought he had a chance looking at his draw...
