Of the top men, only the incomparable Roger Federer can match Schnyder's on-court inventiveness. He is so very good - almost too good.
The media buzz tells the public Roger is boring. Yet, they rarely if ever speak of his once-tour nickname, "Club Fed," given for his penchant for suddenly sliding out to lunch - "walkabout," as the Aussies love to say - in the midst of a match and his once-equally cavalier attitude toward training off the court. They rarely mention his off-court efforts in his South Africa birthplace where he does there for underprivileged children what Andre Agassi does in Las Vegas. They rarely mention his intensity during a match. Somehow television microphones barely pick up the Federer yell after he wins an important point. They also miss the harsh but loud self-admonishment after missing an easy shot, or misplaying a point.
Based on the classic Pro-Staff Original 6.0 85; this frame has all the elements of a classic player's frame; small head, heavy weight and thin beam. At 349g unstrung and 315mm balance, this racket has a lot of heft, which can be imparted onto the ball with great depth and accuracy. While this racket shines at the net, with the right technique and long swings, this racket can be very effective from the baseline too enabling deep and heavy shots with good amount of spin too.
Best suited for advanced players with well developed technique seeking a racket with high swingweight in stock form.
