    If you mean string it looked like she was using some sort of poly gut hybrid. Looked like luxilon mains and gut crosses to me.

    I thought she used a full BB Ace just like Viadosova...

    Last year I strung her racket with Alu Power mains and gut crosses at 32/31 kilos. It was a stock O3 Red with some lead at 3, 9 and 12 (altogether I would say between 12 and 15 gr., but I can't say anything for sure). Don't know if there was any weight in the handle but I would think so.

    I do remember seeing photos, about a year ago, in which strips of lead were evident at 3 and 9 o'clock on her o3 red. However, now no lead tape is on the 3 and 9 locations. I don't know if she decided to play without lead tape anymore or if Prince is now making her frames with the weight somehow added inside the frame itself at those locations.

    ALU Fluro is softer and is supposed to hold tension better
