Two reasons for prestige:
- Achievement: The guys with the most notable successes in tennis have, for the most part, used small headed sticks.
- Quality: Generally speaking, the smaller headed sticks are heavier and have higher swing weights, this makes them more stable and gives the player the ability to hit a more powerfull shot*. The pros use heavier sticks.

Make a list of the top 5 greatest male tennis players of all time who use smaller head sticks (<94" ) and compare to the same list for larger head sticks (>99"). Which list is more accomplished?

* Given the same swing speed as a lighter stick.
