    Iga Swiatek - Prince racquet

    I will never understand why top pro players change a winning setup for money. Ferrer did this too. I would rather win without a racquet sponsorship than lose with one

    Murray PT57A-2 is switching to XL +10mm??

    Great decision for Murray to start playing around with specs. He needs something that helps him finish points more offensively to compensate for his slower movement. He should change his swingweight along with extending the length. The setup that worked for him in 2016 won't work now.

    Iga Swiatek - Prince racquet

    How a racquet feels to swing is less about weight and more about swingweight and balance. Great results for Iga this French!

    Reilly Opelka racket

    Probably round 325 sw, with the few grams to match frames...which makes sense. Pretty slappy player on the forehand side.

    Bigger sized head racquet for Wawrinka ?

    I once spoke to Roman P. about the topic of changing racquets and specs to fit the times. He mentioned that he had been trying to get Berdych to switch to a lighter frame for the last few years of his career (used 360sw, ~370g) and what he was using was too comfortable for him, he was unwilling...

    Lightest swingweight on ATP tour?

    I hate to bring back the concept of SW1 and SW2 from @travlerajm ;) but that is essentially what we have going on here. SW1 would be the range of light swingweights from 300s-320s. Contains: Holger Rune - 315 Liam Broady - 315 Yoshihito Nishioka - 315 Adrian Mannarino - 325 Nick Kyrgios - 325...

    Lightest swingweight on ATP tour?

    Holger Rune, up and coming player ranked around 500 also uses 314sw strung. All a lower swingweight means is you have to compensate for the loss in power with RHS. It does not inherently mean it is more or less suitable to the pro game.

    Lightest swingweight on ATP tour?

    A fair few highly ranked guys on the tour using 320s swingweight. A couple using 310s swingweight. Remember, it's all personal preference. Whatever's the most comfortable and helps the player perform the best is the best choice. As weights trend downwards, so do swingweights.

    How low can the pros go? (players using stock frames)

    Spoke to R. Prokes on the subject today... he said how light you go doesn't matter, it's 100% preference on comfort, feel, and what fits your playstyle. That being said, as many players get stronger, they often feel the need to use higher swingweights and static weights to feel "stability"...

    More static weight vs swingweight for stability?

    Higher swingweight will feel more stable through vertical part of the swing (topspin), as it swings slower. Higher static weight will swing faster, but will behave more stable through the linear part of swing (strokes such as volleys, serves).

    James Blake's new Dunlop

    Came shipped straight from his home, after the factory mailed it to him for use...I doubt it he customizes it after they send it to him? The specs measured exactly as it said on the paper. I doubt he would have them matched to exact specs only to have them recustomized to different ones.

    James Blake's new Dunlop

    @travlerajm Tough to say. This is the original contest post. I measured the racquet on my RDC. Remarkably, a lot of players play with basically stock frames now. I can't see a reason why James wouldn't want something easier to swing in retirement.
