As far as I know Sabine Lisicki signed with Prince and she was using Prince O3 White Mp but today she used Wilson. I'm not sure about the model of the racquet but it seems like K Factor KBlade Team, don't know the string brand and model. Did she sign with Wilson or she was just trying it? Is it possible to use another brand and racquet model while you have an agreement with an another brand?

By the way if you compare O3 White Mp with this Wilson racquet what are the differences? Thanks

Thats a K Blade 98, and i think her contract ended with prince bc she was still using the Prince 03 White while Prince made their other O3 White users switch to updated modela like the EX03 Black (Vera Zvonerava). Wilson probaly signed her after, but i like her better with a prince

But John Isner is still using Prince O3 White :S It means same thing will happen to him too? Why didn't she go with Prince EXO3 ?

I also expect Jelena Jankovic doesnt have a contract with Prince anymore being that she isnt listed on Princes Website at all as a touring pro who uses their frames and because she is still using the Speedport White while prince made all of the other pros upgrade(to pj/customizations obviously)

I dont know about Isner but Wilson probaly offered a lot of money to Sabine if she tried out one of their frames and liked it and the offer was most likely more than Prince could compete with so they couldnt re-sign her. Just my guess

I would think Prince wouldnt want top pros advertising older models (Isner, Lisicki, Hantuchova, Bartoli, Queerey) but most of them all do

Is there any big differences between these two racquets?

I think Pacific should take her while they can :D

But more realisticly Adidas could get her to start using their racquets

I found the Prince frame to be a more powerful stick that the Wilson.

Question is Can she still serve 130 mph with this New wilson racket ? i think she can. i found Kblade 98 to be very powerful on Serving.

Prince is Going out of Business......LOL

We'll see is she testing the frame or not while playing against Venus Williams tomorrow :) When she defeated Venus Williams she was using Prince O3 White MP. If she use Wilson tomorrow it means she is on the way to sign with Wilson

I asked the Wilson and here is the reply

Wilson Tennis:
Sabine is currently playing and testing the Blade 98.
We will keep you updated and let you know if she joins the Wilson team.
Thanks

It's although very strange, that she's not playing with a blacked out frame during this process... :-|

Well shes not signed with Prince anymore, so they really dont care if shes advertising another brands frame
