I do not know, but supposedly it is an old Pro Staff with a Dual Taper Beam from the 1990s.

She's been using the same racquet since the beginning of her career. It's a prostaff 5.5 I believe. I'm not 100% sure that's right, but I know it has an 18x20 pattern, unlike the Hyper Hammer 5.2, h tour, and ntour she's used over the years....

with earlier paint jobs you could see the power holes along the 3 and 9 o'clock grommets which was the dead giveaway (like Justine HH). This new racquet has normal grommets so looks like she might have switched to something else?

You're having the best season you had in years, end up the year at #1 injury free and shelve retirement plans in the process so what do you do? You change racquets of course!

In regard to lindsay's Htour racquet, she had grommets not powerholes. I did extensive research on her racquet, Henin's racquet, Sharapova's rqt. and Serena's rqt. scanning the archives of close up photos. I cannot say which racquet she actually uses but she does not have powerholes technology and never has. FYI Sharapova uses the hornet and probably always will and Serena uses the hammer 6.4 with powerholes. Yes Henin has powerholes but only at 3 & 9 o'clock.
