What Prince racquet is she using? It looks like an O3 Red?
What about her strings?

Prince O3 Red strung with Luxilon Alu Power mains and natural gut cross at about 30 kilo/66 lbs.

jura, where did you get your info? Do you have the weight and balance as well?

weight is 313 gr., balance 32,2 (both unstrung), length 69,5 cm (strung & unstrung the same:D )
And tension was 32/31 kilo.
I strung some of her rackets this summer.

Thanks jura. So she was stringing at approx. 71/69 lbs? Thats pretty tight.
Did you notice any lead anywhere?

She needs the tight tension to control the fast frame. There was some lead at the head I think. Remember that the racket is more than 30 gr. heavier than the standard.

ALU at 66lbs. That's tighter than most men use. . . . I guess that answers the question "How can WTA players use tweener frames".

66 lbs on a 105-sq-in frame (O3 Red) is not necessarily tighter than say 60 lbs on a 95-sq-in frame.

Is the 313 grams with an overgrip, with only the original grip but without overgrip or no grip, just the bare handle?

We checked the racket as it was given to us. So I think it was with overgrip.
