I think he is coming out with a new racket, but its most likely a paint job.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

He makes them himself, under the guidance of a Shaolin monk. He alluded to the process involving a virgin woman from the near east, a branch of Yggdrassil, some material he scrounges up with a metal detector near crop circles/cattle mutilations.

Re: New Federer racket??

I hit with it on Friday. Was at a tennis clinic and talked with the Wilson Rep. He told me that the grip is shorter (for one handed backhand) and there is something called K technolgy. The reps have not been told what exactly that is. Weight and all specs are same as NCode. Plays like the old pro-staff 90 Fed used to use. Difference is very slight if as compared to NCode. Seems a tactic to boost sales. Nice looking racquet though. Hope that helps.

Yep, I'd bet my car its just a paintjob plastered on his same old PS 85 or whatever it is he really uses.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
