    Does anybody know what racquet Hingis used?(her actual racquet - without the pain-job)
    The weight and balance of it?
    The string and tension?

    It looked like she used the
    SRQ ti 700long;
    Ultimum RQ 1700long;
    MP5HS;
    Ultimum RQ 1700long (with MP5HS paint-job);
    V-con17(paint job???);
    But what was her actual weapon?

    Thanks for your input and reply in advance.

    Thanks for your reply, with that said;

    This is the OFFICAL MP5HS

    and Hingis used the MP5HS racquet during the 2002 French open, or it looks close enough (the head shape and all...);

    This is the racquet she used during the 2002 Australian open, which has the MP5HS paint-job but obviously one can tell the different head shape of the racquet; as the MP5HS is uniquely different

    And also; another example of the racquet in question as per Australian open;

    again thanks for your attention and replies :)
