This is a glaring advantage that Federer should not be so stubborn or na´ve to, any longer.
Two out of three PGA Tour golfers carry an "R" series driver by Taylormade. The R7 inparticular, was carried by an uncanny, 75% of golfers in 2009.
ATP tour players have the same choice that pro golfers do of using the racquet that they prefer. Yet I don't see 75% of pro tennis players using Babolats. In fact, I see players using an array of racquets. This has existed forever. Sampras used a small headed racquet, very similar to Federer's. Agassi used an oversize racquet. There's not one racquet for everybody.
