I'm pretty sure Federer could careless what the racquet looks like as long as it performs the same has his previous frames/paintjobs.

great find! so this means he will be using it in kooyung right away

i had some speculation that the first sighting of the new k factor would be in federer's 1st rd match at the AO...

Oh God, here we go again...

I suppose this means we'll have to put up with two years of people claiming he's using a paintjob of an ncode, tour90, ps85, (insert here) right?
Yes, I am afraid we will. To me, it's just a racquet.

Nope, not anymore since I believe he's been essentially using the K90 all along. So now it's the real deal - string spacing, shorter handle, more feel, more flex, PS 6.0 weight distribution, and all. I never believed he used a real nCode 90 but I do believe he uses a real K90.

Here he is with the K90:

I never thought i would see the day that BP gives up the paint job argument!
Good lord I may bookmark this thread for future reference.

What about the SW? Is it modified? According to Traveler, it is 360 compared to the 326 of stock. What do you think?

I dont know why everyone hacks mirka out on these boards, i mean she isnt that bad, shes not heaps fat like everyone says, she is obviously very helpful and i dont think fed would be as successful if he was having flings with 20 year old blond models every five secons (ala. Safin). Mirka is obviously very helpful and they have a stable relationship, many players who have unstable relationships have a game to match. So everyone should give her a break.

is it me or did Mirka added a few more pounds over the holiday? see the ripple effect on her mid section
I never see why people care about such things...

So everyone should give her a break.
Your sentiments are well-founded, FN, but thankfully, I'm sure she could care less what a bunch of people on the net think, even if she ever stumbled across it.

Date of Birth April 1, 1978
Height 5'8 1/4'' (1.74 m)
Weight 130 lbs. (59 kg)
Plays Right-handed

So she's 10 years older than me 20 lbs. lighter and looks like that....HA!
That my friends is good old fashioned BULLS***!
You somehow think the WTA updates statistics when players aren't playing? If you'd looked a little more carefully you'd realise she stopped playing a few years ago. Very few athletes stay in the exact shape they were in as competitors!

BP, you now may not be a proponent of the paintjob camp anymore, but that doesn't mean there now still won't be people in that camp!

Who cares? I don't want to use the K90 just because Federer uses the K90, so I couldn't care less how he has his customized. He could have his weighted up to 10 pounds for all I care. I just want the stock racquet because I think it's probably the closest thing to the PS 6.0 90 that I requested Wilson to make for me 2 1/2 years ago. :D

BTW, I play with all of my racquets stock (i.e., no lead tape), just with leather grips (and heat shrink sleeve, if needed).

True, just like there are still people investigating the JFK assasination over 40 years later! And just like there are still some people who don't believe men ever landed on the moon or that the Holocaust ever happened.

somewhat agreeing with breakpoint, i believe federer's been using the same racquet this whole time, the racquet's specs have always been the same, its just a 90 sq in racquet with a shorter palette and distinct string pattern, and now, finally, the stock model for the public is the same as the racquet in federer's hands

obviously he might ask wilson to make it a little heavier or whatever while we ordinary tennis players will take the time to apply the lead tape on

pro staff tour 90 to ncode 90 to k factor 90...the stock model changed from the ncode 90 to the k factor 90, but federer's racquet's been the same all along :)

The two examples of disbelief are due to different reasons entirely. The second is not disbelief, really.

You know Jewish people can shapeshift, right? It's okay, I only recently became aware of this -- I saw it on an acclaimed documentary from Kazakhstan. Seriously.

The white grip does wonders to the racquet. At first I didn't like the paint job but the white over grip changed that.
