But to call it "unplayable" is a bit of a stretch...I guess Safin's midsize Heads were unplayable if he kept destroying them all.
Like many Mid players before him, Borg, McEnroe, Connors, Lendl, Sampras... Even Agassi used extra dense string pattern in his OS frame, but next generation gravitated towards open pattern and/or MP+ frames. Wilson PS90 launches the ball so much higher than Prestige Mid.
Why make recreational players and juniors work more to get the ball over the net and into the court?
