Does she still use the old Hyper Hammer with Rollers?

5.2 Mp? Paintjob now with BLX?

It most likely is her original HyperHammer but I'm pretty sure it was PowerHoles and not Rollers.

Maybe someone who's seen her new racquet up close and in person can confirm.

Wow..the beam on that racquet looks awfully thick. Guess I've never paid that much attention to her frame before other than the PowerHoles.

Is that a PWS system on her racquet? Is this part of the BLX format?

There is PWS on her racquet, but it's because she's still using her old Hyper Hammer (with Power Holes) w/ a BLX paintjob. But yes, many of the actual BLX racquets do have PWS, too.

LP...you think you know everything. You probably play with some old grandma Yonex racquet.

Not only that, but I actually play surprisingly like some old grandma! Nice serving Sunday, BTW:)

According to Kim Clisters, in an interview at the Aus Open, she was surprised to hear Henin order a dozen rackets. I don't know if they have the same stringer, or supplier.

Hi can anyone confirm she is using a Wilson Hammer 5.2 with BLX paint job?

She still uses the old hyperhammer 5.3 stretch powerholes.

Out of curiosity- what are Powerholes or more specifically- whats the benefit of them?

They were enlarged grommet holes that allowed for more string movement.

OT OT OT

In the pics of Henin, I see her strings are white or Nat gut like - anyone knows if she plays with full Natty gut job (Wilson or Babolat VS - SAME THING) or with a multi of some kind ?

I though Henin and her coach have publicly stated she is using a new heavier racquet??

Plus looking at picks of her new from donst the yoke of her frame look thicker/longer than before?
