    Do any pro's use a racket that weighs between 10 and 11 ounces? If so, which ones? Or do they all use the 12+ ounce rackets?

    That question was asked loads of times here or in the racquet section in similar form. Which means that by searching a little you may get your answers.

    I forget who it was but I saw a male pro use the Wilson Cobra FX during an opening round at the US open on the grandstand a few years ago.

    Florent Serra was playing a racquet with a kobra-paintjob in 2010.
