    in SMASH magazine, there was an article about this custom frame maker that makes frames for like roddick, agassi, sharapova, and davenport. This guy said that sharapova uses a pro hurricane/xcel premium hybrid. but when you see her strings on tv, they look just like white PSGD or something, definitely not a hybrid. am i wrong? is she really using that?

    According to TW, she uses Pro Hurricane and VS, and they're pretty accurate I think. She probably uses the white Hurricane.

    its probaly doesnt look like it because she takes a full pack of hurricane and cuts it in half so its not the blue color in the hybrid packs

    I am also using Pro Hurricane (17 main), Xcel Premierre (16 cross). But Pro Hurricane does come in "natural" color, just that the color only comes in reels. The prepackaged ones are blue. Because my stringer asked if I wanted blue string or not, and I strongly opposed the blue string idea LOL!

    full sets + reels = white/natural
    half sets (aka + strings) = blue
