So why do people think Federer would play better if he switched to Murray's or Djokovic's or Nadal's racquet?
During the wood era, I NEVER heard anyone say that McEnroe would win more if he switched from his wood racquet to Borg's wood racquet or Gerulaitis' wood racquet. Why? Because everyone knew that they were all pretty much the same and didn't give any player an advantage over another. That's obviously no longer true today. Or else why do so many people here keep buying or trying new racquets and new strings all the time? Obviously, they feel they gain an advantage with them.
Because he plays BETTER
with a bigger racquet.
Because the world is progressing, that's why things never happened before happens now.
