My point is, that means with an 85 sq. in. head he was able to nail the sweet spot over and over and over. So to a guy like him, poly makes complete sense. As long as you hit the sweet spot almost all the time, have awesome hand-eye coordination, and can generate the racquet head speed necessary to get the benefits of poly, ya do it at all levels.
Hmmm.....I guess you never saw Laver, Rosewall, Smith, Nastase, Ashe, Borg, Connors, McEnroe, etc. at the top of men's tennis with their 65 sq. in. racquets?
