^ Thanks for the insightful post.

String, gauge, tension anyone?

IIRC, and from Wimbledon last year, it was Pro Hurricane @ 64, and Xcel @ 62 with 10% prestretch. Can't confirm what she's got in there now, but she was particular about string set-up so I'm guessing its not changed much.

So she changed it. Some years ago she was using full Xcel.

Has anyone seen any upclose pictures of her playing this AO? I don't think I picked up any Yellow String on her racquet.

Edit: No yellow string on her racquet.. should it be safe to assume its XCel ?

Pro Hurricane Tour is yellow...Pro Hurricane is either natural or blue. Same hybrid advertised in the Ballot we are pure driver ads that I've seen in Tennis magazine.

^ Oh right. I didn't catch it when he meant to say only the regular Pro Hurricane, not the Tour version. So I'm going to assume nothing's changed and its a PH/X-Cel Hybrid.

When I strung for her in summer 2009 it was full Xcel at 63/61 with pre-stretch.

I saw some TV footage yesterday at AO before her match and she was with some Chinese kids all wearing Solinco shirts and hats.
Maybe something happening there.
