Federer New Paintjob?

Rafa Nadal

Semi-Pro
Hi,
Today i saw the Dubai Final, and noticed, that Feds Stick seems darker, the red of the Stick was darker than before.
Has Fed a "new" Stick?

It didn't look particularly different to me. It just looked the same as it usually does when he plays at night.

Same Racquet

Guys,

I was at the match in Dubai and was sitting front row, middle seat, behind the baseline.

Fed's racquet is the same, the court lighting was different and most colors seemed stronger, thus darker.

His racquet was exaclty the same. I know there have been a lot of posts on his racquet, but one thing is very obvious, the head size is certainly smaller that the stock racquet.

Thanks for your post. I'd be interested in your comments about the match, if you'd care to make any.

its just the same, i use the n90, and i see pics of me with the racket sometimes colored as bright red, machine red, and blood red, i dunno why, maybe its just the lighting

Uh oh, I can just see the rumours about Fed using a paintjobbed PS 6.0 85 flying again. ;)

Ok, how can you tell that his frame is smaller than the stock nSix-One Tour 90 nCode/Tour 90? If you are implying that his frame may be a PS 6.0 Original 85 in² underneath that PJ (which I believe is what he uses), then you can really notice a difference between an 85 in² and a 90 in² head size, at a distance? :confused: Please explain.

Good day now. 8)

TennisAsAlways - please do a search. This is one of the most discussed topics on here. There are pics, there are internet links, etc. Hence the fact that as I type, I can hear Breakpoint's eyes rolling in his ocular sockets.

I wasn't asking: "How can you tell the difference between Fed's frame and a PS 6.0 85/Tour 90 (non-nCoded)/nSix-One Tour 90 nCode?" I was asking "racdoc" how he was able to tell the difference while he was at the tournament, in person, without having photographs to examine the differences!

You think I don't know how to tell the difference between Fed's frame vs a stock Tour 90? I know that stuff already. OLD NEWS. There are differences in the number of strings inbetween the PWS, more dense pattern near top of hoop. etc. etc. etc... I was asking, "What made you so sure, racdoc, that the headsize was smaller. How can you tell without an upclose comparison?" That was what I was asking, and I was asking "him" BTW.

In case you are pullng that, "There goes the newby asking questions that have already been discussed a million times," let my just say that I'm not a newby BTW. I have frequented this board long before your join date. My question most likely has never been discussed because I was asking racdoc a question, I wasn't asking a general question like: "what is difference between Fed's frame and a stock frame!," so why the heck should I DO A SEARCH?
