I agree, the racquet is hardly a problem. He could probably play with a Pro Staff 85 and still be top 10. No, the back is the main issue.
The thing is even though Roger hadn't played much this year the back still gave him a lot of trouble.

Wonder if he'll be able to manage it better like he did last year.
