    TW has her down for the Head Intelligence i.S6, but the throat area looks a bit thick for what she's actually using? :?:

    Chanda is using a Head TiS2 painted to look like the IS6;however, it is a very customized TiS2, because it has alot of head tape all over. BTW, Chanda did use the Liquid Metal Instinct earlier this year in an exhibition in Hong Kong, unfortunately, she couldn't get used to that frame and lost to Venus Williams.

    I know she used to use a TiS2 (or someting that looked like it)...along with Dokic and Lucic (remember her?) at some point. But the stick in the pic looks way too square in the throat/shaft area to be the TiS2...I have an elbow crushing S2 in my closet and the frame is far more rounded.

    You use the IS6, Chanda uses the TiS2....the only thing yall have in common is the paintjob.

    You can see the difference where the throat meets the handle:

    Chanda's racquet is flat at the intersection

    The i.s6 is pointed at the intersection.
