by how much?

At different points in her career, they varied, but most were between 28" and 29".

IT SUCKS thah top brands dont make longbodiz anymore... only the prince and a few... bah. I asked how much a extending of a racquet costs. 0.5 inch = 109$

LOL.. it is hard to be a two handed player on both sides. there is not much to choose there.. only a few 28"...

time to use some balsa wood ^^ ?

when I started to play tennis I played it wrong for 1 week. with a really stiff stick and with a L1 grip (I use L4 of L5) for my big hands. My right arm was "destroyed". I couldnt play 6 months with my right hand because the pain was too big, but the love for tennis was there so I played with my left hand and occasionally I used two hands on both sides because there was much less pain that way. :)
maybe its destiny :P, there is another reason: Im a big Monica Seles fan :)

I learned a one handed forehand with my left hand - tons of Videos and study and it really brought me a lot of knowledge about the stroke. I cant explain it. By using my left hand I somehow improved my right one handed forehand and its a killer. The thing is only you really need to work hard if you want to have an one hander with your non dominant hand. Maybe if i were 5 years old. two handed forehand gives me more power.
