I'm thinking. Serena Williams uses the n3...or a modified version of the n3. On Tennis Warehouse I've been researching past posts about her racquet.

The stock n3 is 113 sq. in., 9.7 oz. or something light like that, and 7 pts. head heavy.

Serena Williams is said to use the n3, 113 sq. in., 12 ounces or something like that, and lead in the handle to make it less head heavy, AND a control-oriented 18x20 string pattern.

My question is, if Serena uses a racquet that has so much power (headsize and head heaviness show this), and she modified it to give her more control (more weight, less head heaviness, spin-friendly string pattern etc...), is her racquet still WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to powerful?

Or does it play more like a tweener/player's racquet that has a big headsize?

Pros can pretty much use anything they want and still have plenty of control. The racquet is plays a decent role in one's game, but if his or her strokes are truely refined and perfected, it should not effect his or her strokes too much. Basiclly, what I am saying is, if you are good enough, you can almost use anything use want and still kick ***.

Would you say that the reason why Serena hits a lot of unforced errors is because her technique is slightly off a significant amount of times?
