The PS 85 is not a competitive racket anymore, though. In a perverse twist, it is suitable for club players but not for juniors, college players or pros. I think the small head and lower SW of the PS 85 will be problems for returning serves, and if only for that, it cannot be used at higher levels. Next up, it will be a liability when facing heavy topspin because the small head permits little margin for error. That is why Federer ditched this frame.
