    This was probably already asked, but since I can't search for "Li Na"
    I had to make new thread.

    So, what racket does she uses, and is it extended?

    thanks!

    she uses a regular pure drive. can't really tell if the cortex is painted or its the real thing. her racket has the updated logo on the cortex

    The commentators said during one of her matches that she was using gut, but said it like she doesn't use it all the time and maybe sometimes uses a hybrid.

    27 inch racket? I always thought its at least 27.5!

    Anyone knows if its the real 2012 pure drive? How about lead placement? :)

    She normally uses Pro Hurricane with Excel crosses.

    Dont know how you could have seen that when her PJ does not have + but has LI NA written where plus would have been

    Without seeing how many strips I wouldn't say there's plenty, but there's definitely lead under the bumper.

    would say she has at least one layer of lead. but hard to tell how long it is. i think for sure she's using a regular length pure drive. if it was a plus, then there should be a opening, exposing the grip between the cortex and her left hand when she does her 2hbh
