    I have heard this as well from a VERY reliable source. He also told me that her racquet is light in both weight and SW.

    It's a paintjob of a 500. With a 500 Tour under it.

    With an aerogel 300 under that. With a Muscle Weave 200 under that.

    Oh, and the rep tells me it's got an aerogel 100 under that.

    With a Wilson Jack Kramer Pro Staff with the brown diamonds under that. With a Donnay Allwood under that. With a Rossignol Strato under that. With a Chemold aluminum frame under that. With a Bancroft Borg under that. With a Slazenger Challenge No. 1 under that. Naturally with a Wright and Ditson under that.

    The Head looks way too big to be 500 or 500 tour. It looks close to being a Oversize head to me.

    OK, just think about it: is it possible to rally with Sharapova, Svetlana or Dinara with 8.6oz racquet? I don't think so.

    ^^^Why not ??? I saw the other day that Sveta hit one ball at 98 MPH. I had no idea that women had that kind of strength...........

    Sveta's racquet SW is considerably higher than Fed's. (~338 vs ~356)

    Since she used a Volkl V1, (painted as DNX V1, may have been a classic), then used same frame under Attiva 6 cosmetic, this would make sense as the Dunlop 500 series is similar to the V1.

    her strings are: PACIFIC "Poly/Gut Hybrid" - the 17-ga version - as she's been sponsored by PACIFIC for the past 4-years already...the 'X' is there, but on the bottom, and on the more 'backside' of the 'flying' D logo...

    Pretty sure there is a 500 tour under that paintjob. The head may look bigger to some due to the fact that she is so small....... No way is that an 8.6 ounce stick.

    It's not that it's an oversize head, it's that she's an undersize person.

    Actually, with much love and respect to Dunlop....
    we can put a proviso in her contract to have a flying D trampstamp on the small of her back.

    It's not so much about strength. Lots of women can hit serves over 100mph. I've seen huge guys who have trouble breaking 80mph.

    At the Sony tournament in Miami , I was told by the local rep for Dunlop that the racquet is the oversize model but it is weighted custom for her. I can tell you for a fact its not any of the 500 series and the head is not 100 sq. I held the racquet in my hand and i would quess it to be in the mid 10's to 11 oz. range.
