    I was just looking at some pictures on the getty-images.com website and they had pictures of an exhibition match between her and Steffi Graf. The racquet is white with some black stripes on the side. Does any body know what racquet this is?
    I'd post a link, but the page updates quite often so the picture gets moved to a different page after a while. If you go to getty-images.com and go under sports, do a search on Sabatini. The picture I'm talking about should come up.

    It's definately a Yamaha. I am not really sure what model it is, but maybe it's the EX 110 that she has been using for a long time.

    Yeah, it's her old EX 110, but it's the EX FT or FP or something like that. I really cannot recall the exact version of the EX. It's actually quite different from the yellow one or the green/purple model which she used before. The white ones were supposed to be the best hitting of the lot. Plus her frames were set to be with indvidual grommets like her ancient Pringe Graphites had. I could say a few other things, but you'd need to drop me a line off list for that.

    Thomas, her Yamahas did not have any bumper guards, right? Also, did she use VS gut, although she was with Gosen?

    Nope, strips and guards were taken out and indvidual grommets were used instead. Never to my knowledge used gut, always gosen or PSG original

    Man, I think she looks better now than she ever did when she was playing.

    The years have certainly been kind to Gabbie. Wonder when she'll wake up and realize she's destined to marry me?
