    This is a surprise because Anna has been using Yonex racquets since she began her career at young age. Anna's picture is featured advertising Head. I think this is just advertisement, so what do you think? I seriously hope she stays with Yonex and not Head if she makes a comeback.....

    So true. Maybe she might actually win a tournament with Head.

    Wow. I am shocked if this is the case. Anna has been basicaly using YONEX racket all her life. But if making the switch can change her game around, Im all for it.

    Well, Anna has been ranked as high as no.8 in the world. Plus she has accomplished a feat no one else has. She beat 4 top ten players in one tournament. It was almost 5 when she was in the final with Venus in Key Biscayne, Kournikova led a set 6-2 and a break, but Venus stormed back.....

    Watch out Enrique, if a woman's not loyal to her racquet, then how can she be loyal to her man...

    OK, who is going to be the first to say that her racquet is a Yonex painted to look like a Liquid Metal?!

    If her LM Instinct suddenly gets a more square frame, I'm gonna laugh.

    Well Dokic is now with Yonex and Anna is with Head so they swapped blondes who haven't done so well as of late.

    In addition to what Andy said, she has a long way to come back to be the #1 doubles player in the world. I can remember 3 doubles matches she played. Her volleys and positioning on the court were superb. She's probably been the most underpaid player considering her worth to tennis.

    CP, Anna and Martina could enter tourneys just in dubs, the pop in interest for the WTA is needed now.

    Ronaldo - That's a great idea! Especially interesting since AnnaK was the younger Martina's dubs partner.

    Underpaid? She has made more money via endorsments than most women earn during their entire career.

    Is that not who he's talking about? If he's talking about the older Martina...what a contrast!

    CP, meant Hingis but now you really nailed an idea.......AK/MH v MN/Lisa Raymond ESPN Battle of the Sexes, winner gets the Sisters in the next round. Btw, AK and Chanda Rubin were a good team.
