    should federer have stayed with 90 sq inch racquets?

    Key word traditional, as in ten years ago and earlier. Look at what players are using on tour now, more like the RF97 than a PS90 by a long shot. The definition of a 'player's racquet' has changed.

    I Its not a tweener. Tweener isn't simply headsize any longer.

    should federer have stayed with 90 sq inch racquets?

    Trends do not logic make. Additionally the size is not the only thing that has changed. Your logical reasoning still leaves much to be desired. I can use your same type of absurd logic to declaim that more slams have been won with wood, so it clearly must be superior, but that's not how...

    should federer have stayed with 90 sq inch racquets?

    This is a bad argument because it assumes the statement that bigger is better is true. The consensus assumption of the tennis world these days is that 97-100 is ideal for a player's racquet all things considered. Bad logic my friend, even you can see that it is hollow.

    Why doesn't Djokovic get much support from the crowds?

    For someone tuning in for a big match on TV or catching highlights he comes across as his court persona, certainly not his most likable side.

    First Textreme using pro (that I've seen)

    It wasn't that the ports are a bad idea and that bad idea put Prince on the rocks, plenty of folks like the port frames, the issue was that Prince made the bad decision to focus only on that design. It seems this was done in the face of the meteoric rise of Babolat's racquet line but was the...

    If he had switched sooner he'd have been even more dominant.

    Best frame for nuking the ball

    No I was thinking of some old guy, Swedish maybe, who BP always points out as a spin master using teeny tiny frames.

    Best frame for nuking the ball

    Its not that it loses power, its more like it moves to an even higher level of power that makes it more appropriate for playing fetch with an extremely energetic dog than keeping a tennis ball anywhere near in.

    Best frame for nuking the ball

    Powerful spin frame? You want a PS85. Some Euro bloke used to spin balls like nobody had ever seem before or since with one apparently and we all know the high sweet spot from the smaller head makes a longer lever so you have power for days with these little guys. Use natural gut for maximum...

    Wilson should've switched Serena to a Pro Staff paint job for marketing.

    That's your suggestion. My analysis of this situation comes from a background in marketing. You don't put your top two faces on the same thing unless your secondary products mean very little to you. Wilson seems to follow that rule of thumb as well. Also as someone has already posted, the...

    Wilson should've switched Serena to a Pro Staff paint job for marketing.

    A lot of casual players, who are the target of most of Wilson's marketing, wouldn't know which Wilson particular players use, male or female. The important thing is that she has a racket she likes with a giant W on it. You have to assume it is also part of her deal, her success has warranted a...

    Wilson should've switched Serena to a Pro Staff paint job for marketing.

    Roger has the Pro Staff covered and nobody else they have comes close to Serena. They want the Blade to be an alternative, not inferior.

    no respect for the blade 104 series

    Its less powerful than most racquets with that headsize. We can play male vs female tennis player all day but in truth most rec players, even harcore TTers, will never hit as hard as Serena.
