    Can anybody explain why Henin is using a hyper hammer 5.3 stretch(H-tour = paint job)
    I know this racket weighs about 284 g(strung) and is only 3 points head heavy.
    I've heard they didn't customize her racket except for the powerholes.
    I thought these lightweights were not suited for the real good players??
    Is she the only player who uses a lighweight??

    so even though it's overall light, it is slightly head heavy and also extra length if your info is accurate...i am betting it doesnt swing all that light given the balance and length. ed

    Wilson says the version of the H Tour on the cover of Tennis magazine is a version not available in the US.

    What Wilson doesn't say is that it's also a version that's not available in Europe, or anywhere else for that matter.
