As most of you loyal readers know, Dimitrov has been back and forth on the racquet front and has now gone back to the smaller head size with is Wilson Pro Staff 93S (93-inch pro staff racquet with a 18×17 string pattern while he’s endorsing the Wilson Pro Staff 97S.
The most logical guess is that Wilson will release not only the Burn line and the Blade line with Countervail technology but also the Pro Staff series. Since they have made an effort into lining up their paint jobs, I think this makes all the sense in the world. On the other hand, I don’t think they will launch his racquet as the 93-inch he’s actually using but try to get similar specs but label it Wilson Pro Staff 97S Countervail.
This moves us to the topic whether the mid-size racquets have a place in modern tennis. Dimitrov is one of the few players still using a racquet smaller than 95 square inches (95 inches is still a very popular head size on tour: Wawrinka, Djokovic, Murray etc) but you don’t see a lot of mid-size racquets. Robin Haase is still using a 89.5 inch racquets with his Prestige 600 Classic, but do you know any other players?
What do you think about mid-size racquets place in modern tennis where pace and spin is increasing every year?
