I find it a bit ironic that someone with the screen name "lendlmac" would advocate Federer switching to a 95 sq. in. + racquet when Lend himself dominated the tour using a 75 sq. in. racquet and McEnroe dominated the tour first with a 65 sq. in. wood racquet and then with an 82 sq. in. graphite racquet.
yes in 1991, he switched to a 90sq Mizuno, and played pretty consistently, but for his severe ongoing back issues...he retired but he made the switch, no EGO....ala Federer and Sampras
I'm all for small racquets, I play with my Dunlop Max 200G to this day and blow locals here off the court, in fun...but playing onthe Tour, against fast young kids, with larger racquets and more powerful kids in general, Federer has gotta make the switch to have a chance...he can win all the little tournaments he wants to..
Lend won 94 titles, but no one talks about that, only his 8 GS, using his 75 in sq Adidas GTX Pro racquet....
Federer can win all thel ittle tournaments he wants to, but he still wants GS, No? so he needs to switch...if he doesn't fine...only he CANNOT complain when he loses in GS against these younger guys... he CAN'T complain... he does though, everytime...
