    Appearantly, her racket is TT harnet, though its appearance is more attack. Prince in America is good at paintjob and deceive consumers as if pros are using one real racket ,however ,in fact, they use another rsort of racket. This is the way of advertising of prince! Do not be deceived by prince (and other companies which paint pros' racket.)

    Generally, pros don't change their rackets so often.

    The entire Prince company sold for $40 million a year ago. The idea that they would spend large sums to paint a racket to look like the two-piece grommet-less Mores is absurd,
    The paint=job crowd are the gullible people, Ther is no serious money in racquet endorsement. Those figures tossed around of millions in endorsement fees are contingent on the player winning a calendar-year grand slam. Agassi actually receives $100,000 yearly from Head and he is the highest paid player.

    It doesn't cost a lot to have a painter paint a racket to look like another racket. They probably only do it for a handful of pros anyway.

    Also...I don't disagree with the rest of what you said but Sharapova is definately still using a TT Hornet painted to look like one of the "More" rackets.

    She may have already switched to the Shark prototype. See www.princeshark.com for details.
