I am looking at what is supposed to be sharapova's o3 white, but it has pink at 12 and 6 o clock on the racquet. Turn to espn 2 and watch her and you will see it for yourself.

Probably just colored it with a sharpie.

why would a proffesional tennis player use a sharpie when she could just have it customized by prince?

This may be old news but it was just confirmed that Maria's racquet is a top secret prototype with an advanced material that is set to advance racquet technology to unheard of levels. The material is a highly elastic form of ............... bubblegum. ;) Prince recognizes that they may be stretching things a bit but they believe that the new racquet allows Maria to reach an extra 3 feet in both directions. And, the angle on her serve, think about bringing it from about 12 feet off of the ground. Talk about adding some pop to your first serve! Keep an eye on Maria tomorrow, though, to see if she blows it against Venus.

i think i've mentioned that before, or elsewhere.

It probably is a Japanese version of O3 XF white

it has a 18x19 rather than 16x19 on O3 white, giving her lot of control.

i've noticed many players nowadays use 18 mains rackets, like the Williams, those use NBlade and K95, they use 18x20 version.
