I don't agree and I think most on here would not agree. The game is much much more then just spin. We are talking 10-15% more spin.....that would still put 99% of players RPM number below Rafa's RPM numbers. And players have learned to deal with his shots.....not easily but it is his weapon. 10% would still not put pros in the Rafa ballpark with spin RPM. Why would Djok want to add more spin from a string pattern? When he wants to spin a ball under the right situation he does so with his form. I would be quite a bit of money that not a single pro these day would even consider playing a 16x15 pattern, heck, very few play 16x18.
