At my local pro shop last night I saw a couple of Sharapova's Prince racquets being strung. They installed an unmarked red colored poly (at least it looked like poly to me, 17g I believe) in the mains and 17g VS in the crosses. Tensions were 60-M/62-C and 59-M/61-C. The shop uses a Prince crank machine. The poly (?) came in a couple of very cool individual plastic, snap shut cases (sort of like very thin Tupperware) that had a small (very small) Babolat etched on it.

Quite a few touring pros have racquets strung at this place and another a couple miles up the road, especially this time of year. Not to mention, Maria owns a home nearby.

Was it only 2 racquets because they were going to be demo'd either for the string or the racquet? I have no clue.

Believe it or not, her number was on the tag, or it could have Michael's. However, she's too tall for me (I'm 6'2") and I hear she's a stalker.:wink:

PHT came in a snap shut case.
And if it said Babolat on the packet, then its definitely the new hurricane.

I didnt think a pro would have their racket strung on anything but electric?

I am not sure why this string is such a Top Secret ?? from what i am seeing, many pros across the tour, including the women, are loving it and trying it out on both practice courts and in live matches. So it must be a awsome string, or awsome POLY, should i say. i say this despite the fact that Andy dumped it during his loss at Wimby. they crybaby just needed a excuse, i suppose

I wish they would stop waiting and already start selling this string it might be the new luxilon that lasts longer than a few hours. I hope This hurricane is going to be as popular as the VS gut like 20 years ago.
