    I always wonder what grip this is?

    Also, I've seen other pros having the same grip as this. I just forgot who they are. Just wondering what's so special about it.

    It's Roddick trying to get a grip on reality.

    ^that or it's the Head version of tournagrip.

    Why is it so special? Because it's universally known as the most absorbant grip available.

    Roddick uses tournagrip. It's widely available, so you can try it yourself if you want to know why people use it.

    I find it to be quite good when new, but not durable.

    No babolat just made a blue version of that so they could say that roddick uses it. As was said before, (a lot) he uses tourna grip.

    actually, it's a western grip. TW sells them :). I bought a few of them for myself, and it really works great! ( I know roddick uses semi-western)

    I agree completely. The grip is great, but only last me about 4-5 hr of play more it starts coming apart

    yeah but the wilson/yonnex stuff goes bad just as quickly, in a different way. It doesn't shred but the tackyness goes away after 4-5 hours. Pick your poison. To me, Tourna lasts the longest cuz i can use both sides.
