    Jelena back to her old Prince racquet at Olympics? Or a new one I can't tell, looks like O3 Red. The Wilson or whatever she's been using lately is of no good to her, it seemed liked a smaller head racquet, which is the last thing she needs...shanking all those forehands!

    In any case she needs all the luck she can get, she plays Serena in the first round. Oi vey.

    ^thanks. and that is her old O3 Red! i think its a good idea to switch to it considering no sponsors seem to be signing her at the moment, and she played her best tennis imo when she was using it.

    I remember her playing her best tennis with those rackets. However, her changing for different sponsorships, age and general hunger for the game has been her downfall.

    Wow, she hasn't used those in years. She switched to the Speedport white a while back.

    Her drop is play is definitely equipment related - *rollseyes*

    I think if I was Wilson and Babolat I'd give her a few hundred grand a year NOT to use their sticks.
