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.
EXCELLENT post. All statements true.
I see guys obsessing about what this player and that player uses. Demo some racquets, find a racquet that feels good to you and practice, practice, practice.
