Cecchinato Racquet

I count 20 mains indeed but why an old Aero storm instead of the newer Pure Aero VS frame?
offcourse I meant 20 crosses. I noticed he can be accurate with his backhand and make very few errors with it. Maybe others hit harder, but there is a reason he has reached the semis when the others didn't .

Not really. Gasquet has much better backhand. I think even Thiem has better backhand
Thiem maybe, Gasquet, I don't think so. Nadal absolutely owns Gasquet owing greatly to the fact that Gasquet cannot consistently navigate that high top to the backhand side. Thiem on the other hand can handle it.

Cecchinato seemed to be controlling most of the backhand rallies with Djokovic. What makes his so effective is how whippy and topspinny it is.

Im going out on a limb, but believe Tsitsipas and Shapovalov have better backhands but not yet mentally ready to make them the best yet. Tonight Thiem missed so many BHs it was comical.

Aerostorm is the stick with thinner beam, correct?
Was wondering how he was cracking the OHBH with an Aerodrive

Because most pros don’t change racquets, sticking with what they settled on as juniors?
While googling the Italian i fount few photos in which he swung a Prince. So i dont think he uses the Aerostorm that long. By examening Tennis University numbers the bigger sweetspot of the new Pure aero VS compared to the old Aerostorm is obvious. Thats why he should use the better frame.

It is pretty clear that he does not use Aero Storm but Pure Aero VS as neither of his last rackets has Cortex

sntis the pureaerovs just anaerostorm without the visible cortex?
Such Aerostorm simply does not exist.
It is Pure Aero VS 2016 Model. And I doubt that Pure Aero VS 2016 = Aero Storm GT without Cortex.
I guess they changed layup quite a bit.
