Free extra power and reach if you can handle the swingweight. Nearly all the shorter players use some kind of extended racquet to get a boost on serve, Rochus and Ferrer are both using 28" racquets by the look of it.

I think the lack of extended length players racquets available nowadays is a pity for the shorter amateur players, as you get a choice of a control racquet or an extended Babolat (The Pure Storm Tour extended looks interesting, but the string bed still feels a bit lively on the regular one). I would really like to try hitting with an extended Prestige or a POG longbody.
