Discussion in 'Pros' Racquets and Gear' started by sdstefanov, Dec 30, 2013.
I'm anxious to see how he does in Indian Wells and Miami. He's posted some good results as of late.
What's the final verdit on the headsize?
95.367 in^2 ± 4.178 in^2
Just noticed that the racquet has shared holes
noticed this aswell, but just at the bottom side of the frame
Photos of Grigor's rackets
Here are a few photos of Grigor Dimitrov's rackets taken recently:

Hope these can be of help,
Thanks for the pix!
Wondering if you can do everyone here a favor: get a retail Wilson ProStaff 95 headsize frame (or maybe using Dolgopolov's since it IS a true-95) and compare it side-by-side by Grigor's...
So that we know whether he really moved on to a true-95 (from a true 93)
Thanks in Advance!! :mrgreen:
Wow! I didn't know that dimitrov had shared holes
That probably sounded so much better in your head...
Does he use Wilson gut/Lux 4G as his set-up? Thanks
Did you happen to measure the specs by any chance?
From just comparing the pics, it does appear that Dimitrov's frame is slightly smaller than Dolgopolov's frame, so maybe Grigor is still using a 93?
I like the look. He still uses that monstrous grip too, it's a 4 7/8 or something I think isn't it?
I thought Dolgopolov (PS 6.0 95) and Dimitrov (Six one tour 93') has the same mold as they been using for many years. But they just drilled the the hole different to either 18x16 or 18x17
Dimitrov's racquet's throat looks exactly like the Pro Staff 90 throat. The Pro Staff 95 has a smaller throat at the bottom.
What tension is Dimitrov using? :-?
Is there any benefit to a racquet having shared holes? :-?
What a garbage! Some commentators just said on TV, that Dimitrov were playing with a racquet that's just a paintjob of the old Sampras racquet. Then they were chit-chatting how hard it must be to play with it. Oh C'MON, seems it doesn't take much to be a tennis commentator!
Well, it is based upon the Sampras racquet, just a larger size version of it.
Why doesn't Wilson put this one to the market? So many mid-lovers here still using K90 & KPS88, expecting them to be in a 93-95 head.:twisted:
BTW, BP, would you recommend the PS 6.0 95? They are making the current 95(s) too light and it's so annoying trying out different customizations to make it play like a tour90 or KPS.
Natural gut mains, 4G cross for Dimitrov?
4G mains, natural gut cross for Dolgopov?
Yes, I would. I used the PS 6.0 95 Original for several years. Probably should have never switched away from it as there was nothing really wrong with it. However, most people do like to add some lead tape at 2 and 10 o'clock since the upper half of the hoop is a bit dead, and also to increase the swingweight a bit. I played with mine stock, though. Dolgopolov is still using one on tour (recently switched to a 18x16 from the standard 16x18 string pattern).
