I was thinking about it earlier, and I think Cilic is the only player who switched to a smaller head size late into his career. All others go larger. Can anyone name anyone else that did it other than Cilic?
That's crazy! I know when I used the Prostaff 95in in college it was a perfect balance and felt great. I couldn't imagine anyone using the 90in PS.... and here he's using an 88?!?!Richard Krajicek went even smaller to a box-beamed 88 sq. inch RD ti-70 after the triangular-beamed SRD Tour 90.
on tv it didnt look smaller. I think he switched from the Pete Sampras 85 pro staff wilson model to a > 90 yonex with extended handle.Krajicek did it on his early years, he went from a 95 sq.i PS 6.1 to a 90 sq.i. Yonex
no he did noton tv it didnt look smaller. I think he switched from the Pete Sampras 85 pro staff wilson model to a > 90 yonex with extended handle.
I only know of Chang who went from an oversize Prince to a Babolat pure drive, probably for some extra power in his later career. But he didntget any better results.
i dont think you know what a conspiracy is. When Kraichek played Sampras on Wimbledon they were clearly using the same racquet model. so you stop you no its a paintjob conspiracy.
Wel now you admit it yourself Richard played with the smaller 88 head. If he did it on senior tour than he did it on the mens tour before also. I did not write Pete played with a yonex. I only remember Pete and Richard playing with the same racquet model. Probably not on Wimbledon when richard switched to a > 90 head yonex but before. Maybe it was on US open the year before?Well, Sampras playing with Yonex would be a new one, at least form me - because RK never played with 6.0 mid on the tour. He did played with Sampras KPS 88 in the senior tour
That match was in 1996, and it's on youtube, I'm not gonna bother with you anymore
I don't really mind if you you believe in me or not, facts are facts, even if you don't believe them
you are very wrong:again, you want me to post the 96 Wimbledon game?
here we go, part one:
Now do you see any signs of a Wilson racquet on RK hands? Does that look like any Wilson? Does any Wilson ever built looks like that? Stop being a jerk.
Next, here's RK with a 6.1 classic vs Andre Agassi :this was early 90's. He changed around 93 or so. Is that a Wilson he's holding?
Now, do you know how a 6.1 and a 6.0 85 look different? And play different? Do you have any idea about this subject?
I'm not wasting my time with you again. He did played with the KPS on senior tour, you want me to get a picture from that?
Correct, this is a SRD Tour 90 with RD Ti 88 paintjob. 2002 he switched in real to the RD Ti 88.and this does look like small yonex:
It's a small Yonex, but definitely not a Pro Staff 6.0 85, or mid, or whatever you wanna call ityou are very wrong:
and this does look like small yonex:
Gasquet used Radical Tour TwinTube 630 and i.Prestige MP he then went bigger to the LM Instinct MPI’m curious who in the course of their career has switched frames to a smaller size? I suspect Hewitt did but I don’t know what prince he used.tt.tennis-warehouse.com
Played bigger frames as juniors:
The other thing is that the 88 could been bigger than the 90. Who knows...So, he did change to a smaller frame twice? Interesting...
He played big back than, but had lots of injuries.
Same type of player as Stich, liked both a lot
Head racquets have that "head size problem" too, as you probably knowThe other thing is that the 88 could been bigger than the 90. Who knows...
Pure Drive is slightly bigger than 100. But why they named it 100? Because many players would not buy it as a 102.
