Does anybody know what racquet Hingis used?(her actual racquet - without the pain-job)
The weight and balance of it?
The string and tension?

It looked like she used the
SRQ ti 700long;
Ultimum RQ 1700long;
MP5HS;
Ultimum RQ 1700long (with MP5HS paint-job);
V-con17(paint job???);
But what was her actual weapon?

Thanks for your input and reply in advance.

Thanks for your reply, with that said;

This is the OFFICAL MP5HS

and Hingis used the MP5HS racquet during the 2002 French open, or it looks close enough (the head shape and all...);

This is the racquet she used during the 2002 Australian open, which has the MP5HS paint-job but obviously one can tell the different head shape of the racquet; as the MP5HS is uniquely different

And also; another example of the racquet in question as per Australian open;
