I'm not sure, it looks almost looks too clean to be a crack.

I've only seen one racquet snap from a mis-hit overhead. It was a 20 year old POG. It certainly shouldn't happen to a relatively new contemporary frame.

If it were me, and I didn't feel a difference, I would continue using it.

I think someone keyed your racquet.

It wasn't like that initially, this happened about 5-6 months ago. I purchased the racquet about over a year ago. Like I said, I completely framed a jump overhead while playing (easy ball came and I tried pulling a Sampras) and then it became like what you see in the photo. The reason I ask this now is because I'm replacing the grommets of this racquet and I became curious as to what people here thought. I also thought the crack/scratch was strange. I remember the day I framed the racquet was a chilly day, though I'm not sure how much that helps.

I'll try and get better photos.

ahh yes... the ol' "missed sampras slam on a chilly day w/ yonex crack"... i've seen 20 other racquets messed up from that exact same type of shot!

Would you classify my racquet as "messed up" or "just a scratch" :)
