I see Marion Bartoli is playing a Prince O3. Is it O3 red? Speedport? Specs?

Yeah, it's a new one from Prince, made for the twohanders ... called the 'ten foot pole'.

I believe she's using O3 Red but I read somewhere that's she's one of the new Ozone racquets. Looking at the videos, it really looks like an O3 Red.

It may just be the paint job, since a lotta players do it, but looks like an 03 tour to me...

It really looks like an 03 Red but modified to be longer. @_@ Have you seen her serve? She holds that rod like a fishing pole.

03 red 28.5inch from what I have heard. I was under the impression that 28.5inch is the maximum legal limit?

The max is 29 inches and (i think) 135sq.inch head

The head size is not limited as itself. There is just a limit for max. length und width of the head. But due to this much more than 135 sq in isn't possible.

Ok well it did look like it was longer than 28.5 but I thought the limit was 28.5 and the Aussie commentators Mark Woodford commented on it being 28.5inch.

The questions is "would you hit a two-hander with one?" I'm assuming your answer was built in to your first statement...

Which pro you work with uses the longest racquet?

Marion Bartoliís racquet is 29 inches. Incredibly unusual. If you watch her play it makes a little sense she uses two hands on both sides.
