I'd asked you a while for information on the specs and gear (Strings, grips, etc...) for certain players but ultimately, never got a response. Those players were:
Elena Bovina (both her yonex and head)
Daniela Hantuchova (both yonex and babolat)
Should I care about this? No
Does it fascinate me? Yes
Thanks for the info, you can email me at LordCirque@aol.com

Sorry about the delay man, I've got a lot of things on my plate these days, what with work, uni, work, tennis and the inevitable amount of time us waste thinking about women. anyhow, I dont have the specs for all of these players, but of the list you have, this is what I could come up with.
If you can get specs of Tom Martinez, they'd probably be a lot more accurate, since JCS have their own proprietary machinery which is apparently far more accurate than the Babolat RDC that i was using.
All the specs I'm about to quote are for strung (i think) frames with the grips "as is". By that I mean, how the players would actually play with it.
PS, when I quote the racquet type, I'm just going to quote what paintjob it is. Often times I'm not really sure whats under the paintjob because quite frankly, I have a life, and dont know every racquet that every manufacturer has spat out in the last 10 years.
Daniella Hantuchova - Yonex RD-Ti 80 (i think it really is one though)
string: VS Team 130 (25/24kg)
balance: approx 324~325mm
weight: 358g (strung)
Elena Dementieva - MP Tour 1 98 (i think it was one too)
string: Alu Power (22/21kg)
weight: 345g (strung)

Hantuchova was using Alu Mains and VS Touch crosses at 23/21 recently.

well actually, during the tournament, harold got a whole stack of luxilon and thats when she started experimenting with it. I was stringing for her personally..

Did you string for Elena Dementieva personally??
What tension is she using in pounds?
She is my favourite WTA player and I also use ALU and would like to compare my tension to hers.
It obviously didn't help the serve :?

I strung for her personally, yes.
She was stringing at 22/21kg.. Just multiply that by 2.2 to get it in pounds.
