This image is taken in Hong Kong just hours ago.

So far I see a signature, some lead, but not not sure if this is the real EXO black. Can anybody tell me who seems to be written on the inside of the throat?

She had TX200A-100 TK2A 28" written in the throat middle of last year, not sure about now though. Any specs on this new racket? Or what the code means?

after looking at the ports shape and beam width, i think its a good argument to say its the real thing

Yeah, it's lead ;) I wonder how heavy is her racquet...

Looks like a ton of lead to me! Especially if that is on both sides of grommet and both sides of frame! Which I am sure it is!

My local shop has one of her o3 whites autographed and I have noticed the lead on it before- its a fair amount.

Great picture!

I wonder what string that is? Doesn't look like a poly or gut. Does look like 16g or bigger.

Also the grip looks very small.

I think she uses M2 for the mains and natural gut for the crosses.

Does not look like that though. But last year that is what she used.

I didn't noticed ( or see) the string inserts in that racquet.

As long as it helps her take her forehand earlier...

Does anyone else find this photo mildly arousing?

It's not lead. Just part of the racquet. Good eye though.

String hole inserts?

They are there...the EXO3s have smaller and narrower holes than the O3s...not as easy to see, especially from that angle in the pic.

Almost as much as what Dokic was packing yesterday!
