Watching the PLO final. Paint looks like the nTour, but head looks too big, like 100, not 95.

Is it real, or a PJ?

lindsay hasnt use the real thing as far as i know since she was using some wilson staff frame w. power holes...last year this time she was using a hTour paint job w. the same power holes frame..i saw it from like 3 feet away....but this year, she does seem to be using a larger headed frame than a 95 <maybe>. who knows what it is....and why sould anyone really care??

Really, how does anyone know what the pros are using unless they are the pro or the racket company? Uh, they don't.

Guy I know strung rackets for her @ team tennis he said only this : it was heavier , longer and paint was coming off of it, different from the racket she endorses.

yea, of course her racquets are painted. they all are. that doesnt prove that the specs arnt the same as the actual racquet she endorses.

LD uses a racquet with 18/20 string patern since the beginning of her career. As far as I know it was an old moderate dual tapered Wilson frame from about 1991/92. It looked the same as the stick Todd Martin used to play. And I don't think that LD ever changed her racquet the last 12 or 13 years.

From watching Lindsay play, it is obvious to me that she does not use any Wilson racquet in its stock form. From the way she swings at the ball and the heavy groundstrokes that she hits, it's obvious to me that she uses a very heavy racquet. My guess would be that she uses a ProStaff Classic 6.1 w/paintjob weighed up to over 13 oz., perhaps even close to 13.5 oz. or more. She's a big and strong girl and can handle the weight easily. That's how she's able to hit the ball so hard with a relatively slow stroke.

wasn't it ProStaff 4.2 what Davenport and Todd Martin were using?
