Now we know Kimiko Date's racquet weighs a whopping 385g. And of course she got world class technique. But is it also what it takes to compete against other tour big hitter ala Safina when you have compact strokes??

And anyone knows the balance and string of her racquet?

I don't doubt you (her playing style would surely demand a heavy racquet), but I'm always curious about such things: how do we know the weight of her racquet?
