    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    I don't think a larger frame would change much to be honest...the fact he played great tennis this week is testament to his hard work on and off the court. Racket head size, especially the minute change from 95 to 97 or 98, is not going to make him a slam winner....it's personal preference.

    Federer’s actual Frame specs!

    I heard before that Fed gets lighter frames from Wilson than 340g and adds silicone and lead to get his desired specs.

    Yonex Custom Fit

    Ask yonex Japan why they are so anal about changing grips... Pros all wrap their own or have p1 contracts. No one is using a racket directly from the Yonex Pro room. I requested leather and they said they didn't do it. I'm just a nobody getting a discounted frame through the right channels... If...

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    I usually use an Angell TC90 V3, so the sv95 was quite powerful, but I can understand that it's less powerful than other frames. I like generating my power, so it's nice for me
