In fact, I don't really get what your fascination is here that causes you to obsess over what racket other people use. If you are winning, you shouldn't really care what racket your opponent uses if your better than them.
Isn't that why Federer still uses a 90?
Yes, I know but my point is that it CAN be done because we saw Borg do it. Even today, if you use an APD you're not going to hit the ball just like Nadal. But we know it CAN be done because we see Nadal do it all day long.
I just think we need to stop this nuclear arms race now and stop all of these ever increasingly more powerful and more spinny racquets and strings. It should be the player producing the power and spin, not the racquet and strings.
