I got a nice Wilson racket for £20 secong hand! RRP was £120! Woo bargain! Just got it regripped and restrung and it was good to go. Used to own a Slazenger but found it lacking in power a little. The Wilson I have now is so easy to play with.

I should be using 27 inch rackets at my age but I prefer 25 inch. I have more mobility with it and its powerful enough

I met someone who's strung Andy's racquet, and according to him these are his specs:

I know that a lot of players do have paint-jobs done on their racquets, but he's completely certain that Andy's racquet is a standard Head iRadical (with some customizations)

Head iRadical MP Racquet...
with iPrestige Cap Grommets (Notice that the outside frame is all black)
Alu Power Main Strings strung at 61lbs
BDE Natural Gut Cross Strings strung at 62lbs
L3 4 3/8 grip size with a Karakal PU Grip

I would imagine that his string tension probably varies slightly depending on what surface he's playing on.

Just incase anyone wanted to know Smile

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

i use those and people just stop and glare at me and i smile. i was playing this one girl who i was totally out classing (not braggin its true!) and we were playing half shortcourts. like just the deuce side service boxes. i would get her back and use alla my touch on sweet little dropshots. she was gettin mad at me, but she thought i was cute so it wasn't all bad.
