Any Pros using 16x18 racquets?
 
just curious...since all of them are strong enough to generate massive spin.

TW says mardy fish uses one, but i doubt it...

Tommy Robredo's blacked-out Dunlop is 16X18.

Nobody uses 16x18, 16x19 is way too awesome.

What do most of them use?

Fish uses the 18X20 Wilson.

Felix Mantilla used to use a 14X16 frame. I have one of his old frames.

Yep, it's a special drill with individual grommets. It has lead tape crazy all over the head and none on the handle. Kinda cool...

Mark Woodforde's Wilson 7.5 OS had a 12x16 pattern. He strung it with Luxilon 1.80 gauge at 83 lbs. I know because I have one of his racquets. :)

I saw a lot of pros on the tour uses the k95, i am sure some uses the 16x18 pattern.

Yea, Felix used just about everything, almost the whole line of Volkl he used...
He started out with the C10 pro, used V1, Tour 8, Becker 10, etc...

Lately he is swinging a Babolat Aero drive.

Mark Woodforde was known for using really open patterns. I remembered he had a Yonex RDP10 that was like 12x14.

Richie Rich 07-01-2009 12:58 PM

henman used 16x18

lefty10spro 07-01-2009 01:15 PM

Many of the Prince sponsored pros - Troicki, JC Ferrero, Vassallo-Arguello, and others use the Ozone Tour which is a 16x18

Davydenko did and changed to an 18X20. He immediately noticed more control....lessons are learned across abilities it would appear!

which is funny - since before prince he played with an 18x20 prestige

christo 07-02-2009 02:28 PM

stanfordtennis alum 07-02-2009 04:38 PM
