Folks on these boards want Roger Federer's racquets. They think there's something mystical about them. What they fail to consider is that once upon a time, Roger beat all his contemporaries playing with racquets that were off the shelf. As he progressed and made more money, he eliminated variables; one of which was his equipment.

Roger Federer could still beat 99% of the players in this world with sticks off the shelf.

It's the player.
Best comment I've ever read on tennis.

I wish there were more folks like you around where I live. There's a shortage of tennis common sense here....
