Dimitrov 93....William sisters 104...but in male circuit I can't see anyone bigger than 100sq inch since Agassi

Gasquet's is a 100" head but I think it is possibly the biggest on the male tour at the moment. To me it has always looked a bit bigger than other 100" racquets... however it could just the oval-ness of it.

Funny but I've played with a Yonex 98 and a Wilson that was 95 and they really seemed the exact same to me.

Nadal, and all those who use iterations of Pure Aero are as well at 100.
Please don't confuse with Aero VS.

Also, I believe that the PD users are at 100.
Again, don't confuse with PD VS.

Gasquet is the only single BH player at the top with a 100+ frame & looks longer as well.
F Lo I think also plays with a 100 now but used to be a rare willy 96 at one stage.
The rest of the one handed BHs are 95 at the top eg. Stan, Shapo, Evans, Kohls in that order

Babo PS, Willy and Head popular units seem to be all very similar with aero oval tubing
rather than Evan and Kohs still using square tubing. Shapos sv95 is the most powerful
small racquet out of all the 95 inch frames it has serous pop for its size.

According to our friend Tennisnerd, the average ATP head size is 97.4, WTA is 100.1. I think Cilic still plays with a 93, but most are 95-100 with maybe Gasquet’s 102 Head Instinct being the largest.

Cilic is 95, I believe.

I guess Head guys are clueless about what they sent to him during USO 2014
Or maybe they sent you on a wild goose chase which seems to be the case here. Look at photos and look at what has been posted again..just because you claim you were told something by Head guys doesn't mean your word should be taken and especially if all evidence points to contrary...

Don’t need to look at anything. They have records dating back to the 90s. They found @vsbabolat in their records when he played on tour...
Ask your buddy to share the text I showed him ;)

Not saying they don't have records however everything proves that it wasn't a 312 he was using at USO 2014. The text you mentioned, well I saw that but it was more of like someone sent a PM here with zero proof of sender or receiver name etc...Not doubting you or your sources however I will go by photo evidence.. Thanks

The average head size is probably 99" since half the tour uses 100" Babolats and the other half 98" Yonex/Wilson/HEAD/whatever.

Maybe like 3 players use 95 or less.

I think there are quite a few 95ers. Besides the obvious ones, there's a lot of Head paint jobs of pro stock.

I don't mean to drag this on, it has already been talked about ad nauseam. However, just for a brief moment, forget what Head told you. Forget about the player using the racquet. Forget about venue, what clothes he is wearing, etc. Forget everything else and just have a look at his racquet here:



Looking at the throat grommet here. Look at the throat shape. Can you honestly tell me it is 312? There are pictures of him using a 312 as well if you want I can post them too and those have the Rev Pro throat grommets, as well as a very clear Y shape. I won't say any further, you are very well versed in all things pro stocks. But this is something even I can identify.

I feel like there has been some miscommunication between you and HEAD and I would definitely check/verify again. You are great source of knowledge for sure but after looking at pictures myself I too have come to the conclusion that Cilic was using his older 231 at USO 2014.

There's 6 players in the top 20 alone at 95...
#1: Djokovic
#11: Bautista Agut
#13: Schwartzman
#15: Wawrinka
#17: Shapovalov
#19: Garin

The average in the ATP top 20 is 97.4 by my calculations. You can check if you want but I don't have the energy to list all of them and show the entire calculation here.

I also just happened to waste my time in calculating the top 100, got 97.78 for the average. So there ya go.
