Also Jordan played baseball, so Chicago Bulls should forget about him, as he's not playing ball anymore.Wilson designed the 85 for Jimmy Connors in the first place! Pete Sampras plays with a Babalot racquet the last time I saw him play.
I do give you the Connors part, even though "Pete Sampras, who used the racquet for his entire professional career, established the reputation of the Pro Staff 85 (graphite/Kevlar) as a legendary racquet more than any other player" (wikipedia).
Federer is the least person to have its legacy. Connors, Edberg, even Mary Pierce would be better than RF.
It does look a bit like Tesla-Edison... let's go with Edison because he has charisma and is a celebrity. Tesla is a nut job, who couldn't land a contract, nobody likes him. Right?
