There's not one racquet for everybody.
Ignore federer and nadal. The top 5 are like in a different sport from the rest of the field. Imagine a player that just hit the top 100, is finally able to afford fries with his burger, gets a call from babolat, “Hey, so what’s your favorite racquet?”, “Wilson, why?”….. “well how about if we offered you $100,000/ year to use babolat?”…. “did I say Wilson? I meant Babolat!.... so when will the check get here?”
