I think the racquet change to the Babolat and his change in game was dictated by his injuries. Sure with that Wilson (Hyper Prostaff 6.5) he made amazing plays (AO 08 highlights are insane), but he had to hustle around much more than I think his body could handle (he IS a big guy). This doesn't bode well for longevity, and longevity is what gives him more opportunities to do well (remember Taylor Dent?). Also, perhaps the Babolat handles the poly better?
Or this is simply sports and it was the money...
