How much of Sinners greatness would you put down to his racquet head? (grphn3 tch spd mp)

Well, if we’re being technical, this is not true in Sinner’s case either. He uses the prostock (TGT301.4) which doesn’t have handle weights so that weight and balance can be customized more easily. The retail (TGK301.4) has handle weights, which limits the scope for customization. So I believe his racket comes in lighter and with a different balance pre customization.
Handle weights are the lead strips that fit i to the recesses on the pallet under the base grip right?

Well, I don’t know exactly what you mean here but my understanding is that these weights are baked into the area between the graphite in the pallet. Here’s a thread with pictures.

Can some explain to me how suggesting a Slavic player needs to find their "magic wand" to play the best at tennis is a form of medieval racism? I'm asking purely to learn. The concept of someone finding the right tool to optimize their craft does not on the surface seem particularly offensive and suggesting Slavic players look like magicians or wizards on the tennis court seems like it would be a compliment more than an insult.

He plays a brand that pays him. You need a good racket, any brand can make one. You stick to it, and get the reps. As far as equipment goes, string are of course half of the story, poly strung real tight suits his strokes (but I would think he could be even better if he learned to hit with a looser strung stick, to get more feel and variety, IMO,YMMV)

Dont worry about [oldmanyellingatcloud], hes obviously a bitter old person just trying to virtue signal to feel like they are superior to lowly idiots like you and me who find history and genetics interesting.

imagine using genetics to find a cure for cancer? Nah. That would be way too boring and racist for [oldmanyellingatcloud]. I wish i was noble and woke like him.

Lol European racism is silly, as is American racism. I hear many of my European friends disparage Slavs though. Who said genetics couldn't be used to develop cures to diseases? Worth pondering the history of genetics, if you're into this sort of thing https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/19/science/skeletons-racism.html

I'm curious because I imagine there had to be some legitimate basis for him jumping to that conclusion.
