    Zing!


    Yeah, nobody does give all that much about the WTA. Anyway, we don't hear that much because the women players aren't strong enough to use heavy frames. You all think that someone like Safina could handle her brother's setup? Or what about Sharapova using a 13.5 90sq strung with a full job of Alu at 60 plus pounds? Yeah, right. From what I've seen, women just take a frame that they like, slap a tiny bit of lead tape on, and are good to go.

    I beleive there are some Ladies with really heavy frames (G. Dulko comes to my mind), why do you say they do not customize that much? How do you know this for sure? Maybe what really happens is that people doesnt pay as much attention to their gear as they do with the men side. I am sure they customize their frames, maybe they do change model regulary but they customize weight and SW. Anyways, customizing is overrated :).
