    Because Dignics has the Butterfly brand on it? :> Seriously though, many people forget the topsheet's (which could be close to as thick as the sponge) contribution to the feel of a rubber.

    Another option is to change the rubber to something with better control/less sensitive to incoming spin. Probably cheaper in the long run than getting a different blade.

    It's not simply the serves that is getting him points. It's the fact that he is playing pips and can exploit the short returns he gets with a fast off the bounce return with angles and dead spin.
